It's week 7 of our GROUNDED mix series and joining us is Nottingham based DJ, Louis Knight. Louis founded Notts based party, The Waves, supplying ravers with funky beats, dance anthems and all round bangers. His mix this week is no different, kick-start your weekend with some feel good beats! We spoke with Louis to find out about what inspires him to DJ and how his top tips for staying home...

What style of mix have you gone for?

I’ve gone for a electic mix I would say. A fine blend of some fourtet techno, minimals, garage bangers, vocals and some high energy dancing rhythms.

What inspires you to do music?

Inspiration is always a hard one to knuckle down as a lot of it is subconscious. I would say local legend Lukas Wigflex is up there but the likes of Giles Peterson & Mr scruff has pioneered their craft and ran with is.

What’s your top tip in isolation?

Top tips: Get in the kitchen. buy records. Play records. Treat yourself to a bev or 2. Stay in touch with loved ones and be there for your mates.

What’s the first thing you’ll do when we are no longer Grounded?

First thing I’ll be doing when I’m no longer grounded? A cold crisp pint has to sit at the top. Buzzing to see all my friends and family!
