Ladida Beatport


Music played an important part in Ladida´s life since her early childhood. She went to the Music school and to the School for Latin American Dance for three years, but she could attract attention at first in another way. At the age of 16-19 she was working as an international respected model. Around 1995 she got in touch with the owner of Delirium record store in Zurich, who helped her discovering her deep love for music again. At this time the first techno club in Prague opened and, as Linda says in her own words, she was at the right time at the right place.

Thus one could admire the first Czech woman behind the decks with the unbelievable charisma at the first techno club in Prague, Radost FX. Here she played from the beginning with well known DJ`s as Jeff Mills, Carl Cox, Westbam, Laurent Garnier, Dj Hell.. And so she was able to develop her distinctive, precise mixing style and with that she left a permanent impression to many top stars of the club scene. In 1996 she was invited to Mayday Germany and could present her idea of energetic, melodic groovy techno music on three decks to the German crowd. The well known electronic music mag “Frontpage” elected her to the “3rd best international newcomer dj” in 1997 and since that she’s been playing constantly at the Love Parade

The very same year she started her first projects as a producer with two E.P.´s and an album on her own former “Lasergirl” label. Since 1997 Ladida is a member of the jackfruit, an international artiste republic who supported her with shows in France, Belgium, Italy, Croatia, Austria, Spain, Norway, and the USA…to name a few places, including residencies at Oxa and Sensor club in Switzerland.

The major label London Records / ffrr signed Ladida in 1998, but artist and label had different positions on the musical output and so there was unfortunately no release in the following two years. With remarkable gigs in clubs and at various European festivals she could establish her fame as an international accepted dj. With the release of the “Mundo E.P.” on Mueller Records in 2001 she captured again the hearts and of course the cases of the international dj elite with a percussive masterpiece. This records got one of the most successful releases of the label and the track “Lifemaster” was licensed by many favored dj – mix compilations, as “Essential Underground”, “Marusha – Non Stop”, “Dance Valley # 8”, “John Acquaviva Mix CD” and “Amnesia – Get Into Summer 2002”…etc. Her grown experience and the influence of friends like Marco Carola and Gaetano Parisio appears in the release of the “Bullet E.P.” on Ben Long´s Potential label. With this record she presents an awe-inspiring combination of hard, deep, energetic techno beats and the sensibility of a young lady.

On Loveparade 2003 Linda appeared on the Big Final Event at the Siegessaeule! Her set was broadcasted all over the world. Later at night she played a very impressive set at the completely sold out “factory of love” – party at Cigarettenfabrik Berlin.

In 2002-2003 she toured in Japan-Tokio, Nagoya and Australia-Melbourene, Byron Bay with stops Singapore and Jakarta. In 2004 she became dj of the year according to Czech music awards, which is regularly presented by Czech magazine Report. New record called “Slave to Rhythm” was released in august 2005 on UK label Potential Records including 2 rmxs from Space DJs Worldwide mix cd is planned for beginning of year 2006. She is resident DJ in club Roxy-Prague/night Elektra/ and Karlovy Lazne-Prague/night Paradise. Ladida presents dynamic electronic sound on 3 decks supported by her own visual projection.
