Following collaborations with the likes of Gaika, Mumdance and Andy Stott, Israeli MC Miss Red released her debut album 'K.O.' last week. With production handled entirely by frequent collaborator The Bug, it's an intense, adrenaline-fuelled listen that lays out a blueprint for futuristic new dancehall. Born to Israeli Moroccan and Polish parents, Miss Red's early experiences of growing up in an immigrant family and their resulting persecution have informed the writing of the album, influenced heavily by her lifelong attraction to the reggae scene in Jamaica. “Nicodemus really influenced me", she explains, "but as a girl, it wasn’t my voice, and it was listening to those '80s dancehall gyals that I gravitated towards, because they were chatting as proud girls, and from a female perspective, so it was vocalists like Sister Nancy and Lady Ann that really made the biggest impression on me." We're very happy to welcome Miss Red on board for a 'Monday Is Okay' mix, which acts as a showcase for her love of vintage dub and dancehall.
