Aïsha Devi – RA.699
Driven by an inquisitive nature and an unshakeable love for the dancefloor, deep house innovator Powder is taking her passionate eclecticism beyond the cities of Japan to enrich the global scene. As she prepares for the release of her latest venture, a thrilling mix CD for Beats In Space, DJ Mag meets her to discuss origins, no wave, community, instinct and more. Listening to Powder is like watching a synchronised swim routine. Agile, rhythmic movements appear as organic as they do complex, her sound as exhilarating as it is weightless. A DJ in the truest sense, she seeks to craft and alchemise the atmosphere of the dancefloor, without ever needing to define it. The beautiful thing is that the people on the dancefloor return the favor by dancing in a distinctively stylish and sweet way to the music. These new tracks, as she explains, find Powder looking toward the poignant shared moments on the dancefloor, as well as to the importance of retaining your sense of self in a world that so often discourages it and, maybe, finding a community that, instead, embraces you for it. For several years after moving from her native Nagasaki to Tokyo to work for a corporation in the Shinjuku district, her time was spent largely in isolation. Arriving home from work, she would spend long nights working on music, never thinking that her productions would be heard on dancefloors around the world. I was just screwing around with my synthesizer, talking to myself and thinking of whatever comes from simple daily life.
That's all she thought about for 18 months, plus the months leading up to it, and winding down. And, for anyone "dating" a married doctor. To embrace each others needs and interests, it seems I am destined to long for this connection into eternity. As soon as she becomes dissatisfied, she will turn face and educate the OP about just how wrong it would be for her to stay with him. I also didn't want to push him away by overwhelming him with talks about commitment when he's already stressed. I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. Over the years, it would have felt increasingly burdensome to accommodate practices that seemed to me like superstition. I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon.
