Well known for DJ sets and productions oscillating between dystopian aesthetics and illuminating energy, REKA has cultivated a very personal approach to heady electronic music. Demonstrating selections from contemporary techno to the genre’s prototypical past of electro and wave, her sets are a highly sensitive affair; maneuvering seamlessly through dance music’s multitude of permutations, blending together into a carefully narrated story that ebbs and flows with her artistic vision and prowess
Starting to collect records at the age of 10, Spanish native REKA became equally infatuated with science, and it was not until she finished her degree in genetics that she decided to pursue her artistic path. Her eagerness for knowledge and critical analysis can be felt through her wide-ranging musical journeys. Merely one year into her DJ career, REKA was discovered by DJ Hell and joined International Deejay Gigolos as part of the female duo leChic, releasing the critically acclaimed CD-mix “leMix”. Three years later, REKA was selected to participate in the Toronto edition of Red Bull Music Academy and eventually felt the desire to start her solo path, moving towards considerably darker and more experimental realms.
REKA, now based in Berlin, has toured worldwide, playing from clubs like Berghain, KHIDI in Tbilisi, and De School in Amsterdam to Movement in Detroit, Sonar in Barcelona and Vurt in Seoul and The Corner in Taipei, amongst many others. She also held a residency at techno institution Tresor from 2013-2019. Besides her duties as a resident DJ, REKA took on the role as a curator for several years, organising her own night, W.A.V.E.S., and hosting Tresor´s New Faces. REKA´s rich experience and broad musical range have rendered her remarkably versatile, delivering a strong performance at any time, stage or context.
Working alongside labels such as BPitch Control, Bite, Fleisch & Khidi, Reka released her debut EP Diving The Innermost on BITE, followed by the EP Todo Avaricia on FLEISCH in collaboration with Imperial Black Unit.
