Techno / Electronica
Ellen Allien, born Ellen Fraatz, is a German electronic musician, music producer and founder of BPitch Control music label. She lives in Berlin, Germany. She sings in both German and English. She has said that one of the main inspirations for her music is the culture of reunified Berlin; her album Stadtkind was dedicated to the city. Her music tends to be difficult to classify stylistically and is best described as a distinctive blend of techno and electro music, which is dance-floor oriented, yet at the same time has noticeable experimental elements.
Queen B (Orchard Lounge)
Downtempo / House
Orchard Lounge is a collective of DJs that formed in Chicago around 2000. The trio of Ben Silver, Spencer Lokken, and Bethany Lokken, focus on performing for the more discerning of dance floors, and are commonly known to appeal to open-minded and diverse audiences. They've never let their passion for the beat confine them to a single genre, as their sets may include anything from laid back downtempo/IDM to hypnotic tech house and b-boy era electro. Don't be surprised if you hear an entire night of music dedicated to the sounds that have heavily influenced them as DJs either: they all share an affinity for classic hip hop, rock, funk, and soul, as well.
Hip Hop / House
(Terrible music, but a legitimate DJ none the less)
Colleen Shannon (born April 14, 1978) was Playboy's Playmate of the Month in January, 2004 and also was the magazine's 50th anniversary Playmate. She has toured the world as an accomplished DJ, usually playing hip hop or house music. She appeared on the ITV show Love Island and was evicted on 20 August 2006.
IDM / Ambient
Cybo's electronic project began in 2004. She began experimenting by meshing her piano, guitar playing and pulsating vocals with distorted electronic drum beats and thick layered ambient pads. Her music gives off a sense of diversity/chaos/beauty/form of expression. Taking it even further and beyond the surreal ambient atmosphere already conveyed through her music, cybo has created a new style that consists of a melodic ghostly type sound accompanied with hard filled gritty beats, overdriven guitar sounds and layered vocals breaching from afar. Taking subconscious thoughts and creating a visual of effects.
Indie / Electropop
Her music isn't that great either, but the following makes it so much more enticing:
According Sophia, she made [her full length] album 'The Laptop Diaries' completely by herself, in her bedroom on her laptop, after ten o clock
