The talented DJ, singer, songwriter and producer Virginia has been deeply involved in electronica music for over a decade. Growing up in Munich, she soon found her feet in music. Now always known as the techno super star she is today, Virginia used to go by Virginia Nascimento – who could be caught singing to Michael Jackson or dancing to Brazilian music.
She has released her first solo production, the Loch & Hill EP, on Ostgut Ton in 2013, followed by her My Fantasy EP in January 2015. Her debut Ostgut Ton LP, Fierce For The Night, was released in May 2016 and showcases even more of her musical facets, including more narrative songwriting. Co-produced by Dexter, Martyn and Steffi, Fierce For The Night offers some personal insight into Virginia while drawing from club culture’s long and rich history.
Following up on residencies in Munich and Frankfurt she relocated to Berlin where she’s holding a residency at Berghain’s Panorama Bar since 2012. Her DJ sets fuse warm analog house and electro of the 80s and 90s with off-kilter swinging grooves, layered with spontaneous live vocals that add a unique third dimension. With a careful mixture of peaks and valleys, her hybrid DJ/live performances command attention. Few, if any, do what she does.
You can check her out this weekend at Strawberry Fields Festival. In the meantime, warm up with her mix during ADE at Red Light Radio – it goes LARGE.
