Paulina Cewe aka gen.6 knows how to tame the psychedelic sounds and make them follow her every command. Playing mostly at secret underground parties and sometimes appearing at more commercial events such as the well-known Swedish underground club Docklands in Stockholm or Warsaw dj.battle in Warsaw (Poland) gen.6 has established her own style by blending minimal and progressive psytrance since early 99.
Coming from a musically oriented family, as a child gen.6 was schooled in the art of classical piano which laid the foundation for an enormous interest in music and its multiple manifestations. Especially her mother, a singer/songwriter by profession, played a vital role – as she guided the young gen.6 in exploring the beauty of rhythm and sound. Even though gen.6 went on to pursue a medical career, music has always been the main theme in her life.
Introduced fairly late into the techno-trance scene, gen.6 soon found a personal forum in a new dimension. By founding the psytrance-liveact duo Pauer a creative door was opened that deepened her understanding for electronic music. This was the beginning of a great exploration of the trance-phenomena which eventually led to her DJing.
The continous search for an interaction with the crowd, and a constant connection with the psytrance community, enables gen.6 to entwine the different changes and flows both on the dancefloor and on the trance-scene as a whole. Her appetite for beat and rhythm is fueled by the fascinating and ever evolving sound of psytrance. Being one of the few DJs playing this kind of psytrance, gen.6 has both advantages and struggles of DJing a style of trance that is rapidly changing.
