You know it. We know it. The future is female and it will drive techno music to new boarders and strengths. Blanka is the perfect blueprint to experience today, what soon will be the buzz tomorrow. Originally from the south of Spain, the passionate artist started her musical journey in the city of Barcelona by the age of 18. Her style moved forward strongly and independent when eventually crossing paths and partnering up with Angioma for ROOM Lab’s streaming venues and M³ promoted parties all around the city. Her fusion of grooving techno and forward thinking house music has taken her to several dj performances on both, national and international scale now starting from CityHall and Apolo in Barcelona to Egg Club in London and Polygon Club in Berlin – just to name a few. It’s been no secret with the German capital of Berlin becoming her new residence. Her deep passion for the electronic music scene grounds where others refuse to show respect. And so it’s been her last release on ROOM Trax – together with partner in crime Angioma – by the name of „Dirty Pattern“ showcasing this within the scene. Remixers like P.leone or Rocko Garoni did the rest with their appearances on the faders. After first steps in the game it’s not a surprise at all that her path has just revealed the first glimpse of what promises to be a bright shining future. You can have a first insight of what’s about to come in her recent performance for Be-At TV’s Voxnox lockdown stream. And that’s just the deal today, for what the future is tomorrow.
