The incomparable Valerie Norman (aka Valerie Yum) has been part of Sydney’s music scene for the past six years, playing regularly at some of the city’s most well-known venues as well as festivals, fashion events and warehouse parties thrown by underground collectives like Picnic and Vibe Positive.
When she’s not DJ’ing you’ll find Val spending time relaxing at her beautiful Surry Hills apartment and working 9-5 as a booker at the newly established Sydney arm of international men’s modelling agency, Kult.
We asked Val to put together our second bassike playlist, featuring tracks by Letta Mbulu, Body-San and Retiree.
Val describes the mix as “best to be listened to on a Saturday morning before lunch”. You’ll hear Val’s mix playing in bassike retail stores throughout the month of December and can listen to it via Spotify here.
