DJ Totentanz is a force of nature. With a career that was born in the USA and perfected in Europe, she is perpetually touring both continents. A native of Philadelphia, USA, she has been a pro DJ since 2000 and over the course of her career held 7 residencies in the greater Philadelphia area, appeared as a guest DJ at every major dark electronic event in her home city, and makes frequent appearances throughout the USA and Europe. Since the start of her career, DJ Totentanz has also amassed a solid amount of radio experience, worked closely with many top dark electronic and alternative acts, and has appeared as a live member of Canadian industrial band, Detroit Diesel.
At present, DJ Totentanz has appeared at events and festivals in 9 different countries and counting. She is currently part of the resident DJ team for Assimilate (Philadelphia, PA) and a regularly appearing DJ at Cyberia (Utrecht, NL), Club Pi (Vienna, AT), and Vampire Party (Antwerp, BE). Other notable appearances include: Wave Gotik Treffen 2011 (Leipzig, DE), Summer Darkness Festival 2011 (Utrecht, NL), Revolution (Sheffield, UK), Overdose (Salzburg, AT), Cyber Heresy (Bratislava, SK), Dominion (Dublin, IE), I <3 Industrial (Philadelphia, PA), Dracula’s Ball (Philadelphia, PA), Pure (Lancaster, PA), Deathwish (Denver, CO), and many more. She is currently involved in co-organizing an event of her own, set to debut in Gent, Belgium, in July 2012. Totentanz also anticipates 2012 to see her making the jump from DJing alone into producing and remixing.
With a dancefloor-focused style that fuses high-energy Hard Dance with cutting-edge modern industrial dance music, the dirtiest electro beats, and dashes of relevant genres ranging from dubstep to indie dance, DJ Totentanz believes genre boundaries were meant to be smashed. Equally comfortable more “mainstream” EDM circles as she is in the underground, she has found that her style fares well in both scenarios and that each realm could learn a lot from the other. Whatever the situation, the more you sweat, the crazier things get, and the more packed the dancefloor, the more she feels like she’s doing her job. And she plans to continue bringing her creativity, technical skill, hardworking attitude, and sense of humor to events throughout the world.
