Raised on an African island, born in Lisbon, and based in Amsterdam, the DJ, Producer and Maxime 12 label owner deliver high octane techno sets. She is inspired by her diverse cultural background and passion for self-expression through music. Her powerful acid-spiked techno has galvanised festivals including Free Your Mind, Summerpark, Beachland, Dance Valley this year alone.

On stage, she creates a space for the crowd to express themselves and escape every day, as she does ‘The connection of certain moments in a techno set makes me feel alive…I live for that.’

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
