The talented DJ, singer, songwriter and producer Virginia has been deeply involved in electronic music for over a decade. Growing up in Munich, the energetic and dedicated artist quickly found her feet in music. Her career kick-started in the late 90s thanks to a wave of early hit singles, and she soon began to tour as a DJ, discovering a real passion for life in front of the crowd.
A whirlwind of live shows and international DJing ensued, with Virginia finding many a follower, thanks to past residencies in Munich and Frankfurt. After having relocated to Berlin she’s been a Panorama Bar resident since 2012. Inspired by the warm analog tracks of the 80s and 90s, her DJ sets combine this sound with modern records in an exciting fusion, layered with spontaneous live vocals adding a unique third dimension. With a careful mixture of peaks and also moments of reduction, she commands attention in her hybrid DJ/live performances.
Listed in FACT Magazine’s Top 10 house and techno producers to watch in 2016, Emma Olsen, AKA UMFANG, is Umfang, is one of those people who commands your attention when she’s behind the decks. She’s a resident at the Bossa Nova Civic Club for several years and is one of the co-founders of Discwoman, a platform for increasing the visibility of female-identified DJs and producers. 2015 was a breakthrough year for Olsen, during which she cemented her position as a producer as well as DJ, releasing brilliant tapes for Videogamemusic and 1080p that combined subtle, murmuring textures and slamming, mechanical beats into something with a lot of personality. With any luck, 2016 should see her reputation spread further.
Music mixer, DJ and selector Olive T is a native of NYC & a long-time scene supporter, dancer, and DJ. An early exposure to house and techno combined with a diverse knowledge and wide span of musical taste lends to her unique DJ style. She likes to weave a musical story and surprise her listeners in every environment.
