We love deep, dark minimal tech and Viktoria Rebeka is the perfect DJ/Producer for giving us some of what we want. We asked the lady herself a few questions…
How would you describe your sound?
I enjoy the harshness of techno, but I also like it to be deep and groovy, it gives it soul. That is why I combine techno with house elements so it creates a raw, but again sensual and fine atmosphere. My production also depends strongly on my mood… the recent tracks I made were inspired by my moving to Berlin. At first I visited many districts and was going around a lot, so my project was to make tracks which give me the feeling of the district. Some turned out to be dark deep dubby techno, others turned out to be funky techno with deep house elements, as some districts here are very cosy and sweet, some rather dark and crazy…
You live in Berlin, we’re visiting in the summer what are your recommendations?
I have only been here for half a year so this will be my first summer and I am strongly looking forward to enjoying it with you! Anyway, if you want great techno, I can always recommend you Berghain, Arena Club for the Grounded Theory Night, Stattbad Wedding or Tresor where I play with Tanith and Thomas Hessler on the 23.06. I also hear there are many nice open air and boat parties coming ahead, so you have to contact me when you come and we can meet up!
If you were a kitten for the day, what would you do?
A kittens day is not so long, as I would sleep out most of it, and for the rest, well… I would definitely play with the mouse!
Here’s a preview of Viktoria’s Berlin Districts EP. Kreuzberg and Neukölln are out on vinyl in October. They’re all so good, we can’t pick a fave!
You can catch Viktoria hosting Thursdays at Tresor from 26th July along with ESHU and other special guests.
PS. We also hear it’s VR’s Birthday today so here’s wishing her a big Happy Birthday from all the Techno Kittens. Miaow.
