Betty Booom is 27 years old, comes from Cape Town in South Africa and loves electronic but also handmade music. She started playing in bars and clubs 10 years ago and has played at several festivals in her country. As a DJ, she has a penchant for combining techno and house with old music elements and integrating them into her sets.
In her childhood she had piano lessons for years and her whole family consists of musicians who play all instruments. Her father’s passion for collecting vinyl and the genres of jazz, swing, soul and disco shaped her taste in music. the last years she has been able to improve her skills as a producer so that she now publishes her own music. It’s an interesting mix of styles, something completely new, you could possibly describe it with techno swing.
As a DJ, she has a penchant for combining Techno and House with vintage music elements and integrating them into her sets. In her new track “Balkan Bang” she made it with Klezmer brass sections, a touch of Electro Swing, Gypsy and a very deep bass line in combination with an absolutely club beat in pure Balkan beat style. And it always keeps boooming and boooming again!
Copenhagen based Irishman J Fitz is taking on the electronic and electro acoustic sphere. He makes his own samples from his journeys into nature or from his travels back to Ireland and around the globe.
Influenced from house music, world music, ambient electronica and soul, this project is well spiced in many ways, as it’s genre is not strongly set, yet the production and creative temperament of his music is strong, curious and steady!
