Minimal and techno legend and one of the world’s three most popular female DJs, Sonja Moonear will perform on Saturday September 22 in Barutana.
After debating in front of our audience at last year’s Lets Mix It! At the festival, Sonja returns to Belgrade to entertain her clowns with her authentic set and enviable mixing skills, along with eclectic taste and a collection of plates that can be reminiscent of.
Sonja Moonear is the leading name of the world andergraund electronic scene and the bearer of the flattering nickname “female Villalobos”. The famous Swiss producer and DJ already met in the fourth year with her first instrument, a piano, which later, along with classical music, studied at the music academy. After finishing her studies, she decided to replace the piano for the turntables and bought a Roland R8 drama machine.
She started working with other producers, such as Luciano, Cosmic Chile Zürich, Junction SM, Dandy Jack, and is followed by an impressive world reputation won by an eclectic style for the DJ panel, but also through its own production and remixes, which come out on the publishing houses Karat, Perlon, and her own Route 5.
She is the owner of the Ruta 5 label, organizes various parties in Switzerland, as well as the increasingly popular Kiss Me festival. In spite of all this, she is also a sound designer for Swiss-French television, where she works on audio production for short films, documentary music and music tracks.
Cooperation with great names of electronic music, such as Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano and Miss Kittin, who recognized her talent, brought her world fame.
This Geneva artist can not be easily categorized. Her sets always reflect her numerous artistic ideas and great creativity, due to which she constantly redefines her style. Her musical background, eclectic taste and impressive collection of records, is why Miss Moonear is one of the most sought after DJs of today.
Often ahead of her time, as a great fan of David Bowie, in the late eighties, Sonya infiltrated the Geneva and German club andergraund and dived into the whirlwind of electronic music.
