Backdrop are proud to bring Jane Fitz up North for her Newcastle debut. Behind some of the most superb mixes we have ever enjoyed, she is another inspirational selector, music journalist, producer and party organiser. Night Moves has rightly been the love of many party-goers and we are incredibly honoured to have her play an extended set for us. She embodies the authentic underground spirit we strive for.

For those in the know, Jane Fitz is a revered selector. A DJ for over 20 years, Jane is resident at legendary and truly boutique UK festival Freerotation, as well as at Meadows in the Mountains in Bulgaria and in London at Night Moves and Cartuli’s Day. At home in the UK she plays at respected parties such as Louche, Butter Side Up, Below, DiY, Black Dot, Secretsundaze and fabric and never fails to impress with her deep selections and great sense of narrative.

In the past year alone this diminutive and dexterous DJ has played all over the world, from New York to Paris, Berlin to Tokyo, Moscow to Rajasthan, and is able to lay it down in all settings from fields to clubs, boats, mountains, deserts, warehouses, beaches and basements, always bringing a hard-to-categorise selection that blends early UK acid house with deep, psychedelic house and techno. Her career was built on her DJing alone – not on productions, or associations with record labels or FM radio, and for that reason she is one of the most talented in the game. However, in 2014 a debut release as one half of production duo Invisible Menders was released on cult UK label Porn Wax and proved that Jane is just as able in the studio. A new EP for Boe Recordings landed in 2015, with more to follow from this ever fascinating sound-smith.
