Mix : Dana Ruh b2b Julietta – Club der Visionäre (July 2014)

About Dana Ruh : Born and raised in Germany‘s small town Gera, Dana Ruh soon found her way to the capital city Berlin. Besides her daytime job she got herself into the beat and sound of the vibrating music scene where she started her steadily rising career as a DJ in 2005.
Since then she experimented with electronic, house and techno music to find her own incomparable sound. Not only her DJing got her more and more into bigger venues, also her musical output as a producer let her to regular releases on labels like Einmaleins und Ripperton‘s Perspectiv. She also contributed remixes to the swiss Label Mina Records, the danish Connect Four and american Clink Records. That led to a wider attention in the european and overseas techno market and strengthened her name as an german artist, which from that point on could not be disregarded.

Above all this she founded in 2007 her own record label Brouqade together with a friend. The two ladies intended to completely devote their long-lived experience within the realms of djing & producing and urban nightlife to the release of electronic music in the soundspectrum of,clear Techno and House. Brouqade Records also featured videos of their artist‘s tracks which have been well recognized on respective plattforms.
All her forthcomin‘ EPs were released on that label and new talents such as Danilo Schneider and Benjamin Fehr were featured as well.

Her own musical development ushered her to new collaborations with well-known DJs. In 2010 she produced together with Cocoon‘s André Galuzzi for Ostgut Ton in Berlin. The EP „Mauersegler“ cracked the dancefloors and tracks from that EP have been put on different compilations. Out of this work the both artist created there own record label Aras in early 2011 to build a plattform for their productive liaison and support new talents. Yet she has not hestitated to explore musical possibilities in her studio with her machines to continue her solo work. While evolving new sounds and tracks Dana Ruh hit some spectacular signings with Ben Watts‘ Buzzin‘ FLy and put a track on a Various Artists on Crosstown Rebels. As well there will be her own new releases on Aras and Brouqade.

About Julietta : A House enthusiast since the early nineties, Julietta’s introduction to the world of underground Electronic Music was inspired by producers like Moodymann and Maurizio: their warm melodies and grooves were her first love, and soon after she started building her own record collection by spending time in vinyl shops buying Chicago and Detroit rarities. Her drive and ambition lead her to score a job at a local radio where she moderated one of the first shows for Electronic Music throughout South Germany. By the end of the nineties, she had her first gig at the legendary Ultraschall in Munich where she was offered a residency straight away. She soon became a regular all over Munich, but gained over the first years as dj an excellent reputation far beyond the German borders – at renowned venues like for instance Panoramabar (Berlin), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Rex (Paris), Fabric (London), Eleven (Tokyo), Arma17 (Moscow), ReSolute (New York) as well as festivals like Love Parade or Sonnemondsterne. In the meantime, after almost 100 worldwide gigs yearly, she counted besides the famous Harry Klein an increasing number of resident clubs in Europe.

Her style varies somewhere between House and Techno with all its deep and dubby facets and stands out with a particular mixture of rare old and modern tracks. She has a specific intuition for the right record on the dancefloor, where she manages to build a set in such a unique way that hooks the listener until the last record.  2009 she co-founded the in-house label Harry Klein Records, that she run together with the rest of the Harry Klein residents until 2012. 2010 she was asked to become part of the eminently respected label Sushitech, one of her favourites for a long time and started to play for their label nights all around the world for the next 2 years.

Munich not being enough, Julietta was invited after various dates to join the London Half Baked Family as resident alongside names like Seuil, Mike Shannon and le Loup. In January 2013 was the official start of her own night “Slave To The Rhythm” at Harry Klein together with ANA, with showcases in various European cities, as well as her own bimonthly radioshow on the american webradio station Noice. After 4 successful US-tours in the past, Julietta played her debut in Australia and her first proper Japan tour end of 2013. 2014 she started playing as a monthly regular for BobBeaman’s new sunday daytime event UFO and she joined Luciano’s Cadenza family and his agency Aether Artists with showcases to follow within the near future.
