Lena Willikens doesn’t play the hits. When she’s behind the decks, even her biggest fans often have no idea exactly what she’s playing, and that’s part of the magic. Like all DJs, Willikens of course has a passion for records, but she’s also after something bigger, something that’s truly transportive for those on the dancefloor. Born and raised in Germany, Willikens first honed her unique approach during a long residency at Düsseldorf’s beloved Salon des Amateurs. These days, however, she’s based in Amsterdam, where her transportative impulses have been plugged into a variety of outlets with a global reach. On the radio, she pilots the monthly Lightning Conductor program on NTS. On record, she recently curated the fifth installment of Dekmantel’s acclaimed Selectors compilation series, and she’s also been tapped to remix the likes of Lena Platonos, S U R V I V E, rRoxymore, Simian Mobile Disco and Ana Helder, amongst others. On stage, Willikens works with artist Sarah Szczesny on Phantom Kino Ballett, an immersive audio-visual performance art project that defies routine explanation. Still, it’s in the DJ booth where Willikens continues to make the biggest impact. Whether she’s playing alone or in tandem with fellow sonic explorer and Salon des Amateurs alum Vladimir Ivkovic, Willikens nimbly navigates electronic music’s darkest and most bizarre corners, sampling different temperatures, different moods and a dollop of chaos, just to keep things interesting. And although she herself doesn’t always know the final destination, when Willikens is at the helm, there’s no question that the journey is bound to be thrilling.
The music project “Kinzua” are Lucas Brell and Marvin Uhde. The two build bridges between all ideas by fearlessly changing styles. Sometimes obfuscated, then again razor-sharp. An experimental bridge between two minds. In spring their debut album will be released on Offen Music.
OneTake and Miami Müller from Leipzig DJing for more than ten years under their moniker HW Rhapsody. Since their friendship reaches even back, they both speak the same language in the most truest sense. Locally worshiped for their heart-melting closing sets (ask every Nachtdigital visitor for further reference) the two long-term companions are, through their eclectic and no-boundaries musical approach, also capable to rock every other part of a club night. House, Disco, Wave, Cosmic and beyond seamlessly mixed by two brothers from a different mother.”
