Handpicked by Pete Tong as a ‘Future Star’ of 2021, rising DJ and producer Effy has cemented herself in the scene. She picks 10Trax exclusively for Notion.

Building a name for herself with dark, ethereal house and techno sounds, Effy has already opened for dance music royalty such as Maya Jane Coles, Helena Hauff and Martyn. With this year seeing a long-awaited return to festivals, Effy kept revellers feet moving with a set at Junction 2 festival, alongside Âme & Maceo Plex, as well as at Lost Village festival.

"Oxytocin" by Audiojack

"This is my go to tune to tie together a set. It has some wicked elements; it's a lighter techno tune that still packs a punch."

"Lush 3-2" by Orbital

"I love Orbital".

"Acid Rain" by Steve Parker

"This is one of my 'go to' acid chuggers. Drums are sick in this and go perfectly with the acid line."

"Innocence" by Viers

"Big fan of Viers and this is a cool industrial breakbeat vibe."


"Whenever I scroll past this track in my rekordbox I always play it- every time. It's one of my classics now... Big housey stabs, cool sample and energetic drums."

"Silk" by Moktar

"When I heard this I fell in love! I've never heard anything like it. My favourite parts are the warm pads... and I was really inspired by the story behind it."

"Spin Girl, Let's Activate!" by Octo Octa

"Big statement but if I had to listen to one tune for the rest of my life it would be this one. Piano riff, sick acid bassline, tempo changes, OOF!"

"Pattern A3" by Slam

"Nice roller, amazing bassline."

"Nuclei" by Josh Wink

"It's Josh Wink."

"Vulture" by Yan Cook


"Big techno banger!"
