Gigola

Berlin-based DJ and producer affiliated with the multi-disciplinary Live From Earth Crew

DJ Gigola’s roots lay in hip hop dance and body movement; respectively, her approach towards music is directed by intuition and rhythmic structures.

Growing up in Berlin, she developed a love for electronic music from an early age, yet quickly became tired of the ever-growing monotony that seemed to be overtaking the city’s club landscape.

Hence, DJ Gigola began meticulously studying the broad spectrum of club sounds and genres, not shying away from, in her words, 'forbidden tracks'. These would soon resurface in her initial mixes, catching the attention of the Live From Earth collective, and in turn, making DJ Gigola a key member in 2016.

As a DJ, she puts a lot of emphasis on the performativity of mixing, engaging in a non-verbal dialogue with the audience, taking every variable of the night into account. Her stylistically bold, tempo-driven and rhythm-infused sets incorporate her love for fun and broken beats.
