ANIKA KUNST (Spain)
Though interested by the electronic music at an early age, it was rather later when she started to do her first mixes.It was around 2001 when she professionally began beyond the turntables and throughout these 12 years she has visited many clubs and festivals (Space, Privilege, I.Copera, Orosco, Jam, Electrogaia, Play, Go, Circus Techno…) and she has also shared booth with a great number of artists.
This vast assorted experience has polished up her technique and has deeply enriched her in musically terms.
In regards to her style, she can not be pigeon-holed. Techno is obviously her roots, but she has a chameleon-like hability to naturally adapt her playing style to any musical genre, deep house, idm….
Influenced by the German and American sound, this makes her sessions a mixture of rhythms perfect for the dance floor.
The search of developing a distinctive style led her to what it seems to be a natural step in a dj career, the introduction in the production scene, where her first works have been released under the name of “Kika” in Costa Esmeralda Records.
In 2013 launches “alma records”, digital label which gives accommodate deep house sound.
will be at the beginning of 2014 where her most important project will see the light, “Chapter records”, vinyl and digital label, oriented techno in all its aspects.
