Rebekah captureâ€™s and shareâ€™s her energy through her DJ sets, this can also be found within the studio where she expresses herself using concepts, feelings, moods, art and anything else that inspires her on a deep level, always aiming to create fresh music with a modern feel.
The emphasis will always be techno which has been inspired from her early teens by growing up in Birmingham UK and being exposed to almighty parties such as Atomic Jam and House of God which held long standing parties within the city. Inspired by Dave Clarke, Derrick Carter, Richie Hawtin and Billy Nasty in those early days gave Rebekah a true insight to
90â€™s UK techno with a good measure of jackinâ€™ Chicago thrown in!
The past few years has seen the rapid rise of Rebekahâ€™s profile by showcasing her own style of modern techno, which has been accepted by her peers as well as techno fans around the world. This reflection of the studio work and passion fueled sets has lead to a busy schedule of gigs. Playing at established venues, parties and festivals such as Berghain, Tresor, Cocorico, Fabric, Awakenings, Tomorrowland, Studio 80 to name a few.
A CLR artist, Rebekah has already been accepted into Chris Liebingâ€™s fold, and found her place by mixing a compilation using the back catalogue of CLR music under the Reconnected Series as well as her first EP on this influential label.
