Biography

Techno Veteran

For the past 13 years Becka has been exposing her hard hitting techno style to the masses. She has played at events across the US and Europe, alongside artists like Electric Indigo, Adam X, Agent Orange and Steve Stoll, just to name a few. Her unique blend of Electro, Minimal and Hard Techno have left those witnessing her sets, comparing her sound to the likes of German techno dj/producer Chris Liebing.

Some of the places where Becka has played are: Fuse (Brussels, Belgium), Metropolis (Paris, France), Montuno Vibes (Ghent, Belgium), DEMF (Gotham Grooves, ISOS, Nefarious) (Detroit), Female Pressure (Memphis, Tennassee), Tronic Treatment (NYC), Limelight (NYC), and most recently the I Love Techno 1st Anniversary party in Caracas, Venezuela, along with many others.

Her determination and ambition have led her to the creation of Gotham City Radio. A partnership with American techno label Gotham Grooves, and Dutch based website Livesets.com. Airing every Saturday, the show features Becka’s weekly tune selections, along with some of the hottest international and local artists. Artists she’s played host to include Joris Voorn, Bryan Zentz, The Horrorist, along with countless others.

She has also begun working in the studio, co-producing tracks with Satronica and Agent Orange, as well as working on solo projects. Her first release, is featured on Gotham Grooves 009-Orange Slices EP. Produced alongside Agent Orange, ‘Lemongrass’ is already receiving support from some major players in the industry. Her next release will be a remix of the Locutus track ‘Dark Move’ and is set to hit stores in the late fall of ’05.

Discovering the Beat

Becka grew up in Philadelphia, where she discovered her love of electronic music. From a young age she started singing and playing various instruments including the viola and the piano. During the late 80s she began collecting vinyl from artists such as Little Louis and Inner City, but little did she know what an impact those artists would have on her and the world in the years to come. Her love for dance music became apparent as she made regular appearances on the television show Dance Party USA. Here she was surrounded by the sounds of commercial dance music, as well as the early sounds of Acid House and Detroit Techno. It wasn’t until the early 90’s rave explosion in Philly that she sought DJing as a career.

In addition to being an outright vinyl junkie, Becka can play a range of styles letting loose a turbulent assault on the senses. Be prepared for some of the hardest pounding techno your ears can handle! This lady DJ has been gaining loads of respect & notoriety in the US as well as internationally. Keep an eye on her and be a witness to this rising talent, traveling at the speed of sound!
