DT684 – Juliet Sikora
Known for energy-driven productions on the likes of Relief, Material, Flashmob Rec. and her own Kittball imprint, Juliet Sikora‘s work within the studio and almost two decades behind the decks hasn’t gone unnoticed by those within the house scene.
The last two years have marked a significant period in Juliet’s career, with her revered groove-infused-house sets landing her appearances in all corners of the globe including the USA, South Africa, Croatia, Dubai and countless shows across Germany. 2018 releases such as ‘What Did I Tell Ya’ on Green Velvet’s Relief imprint reached #1 in Beatport’s Tech House chart and remained in the top 100 for the next for five months, with 2019 release ‘Beat Dancer’ on Flashmob Records holding a top spot for 12 weeks. Plus, Sikora was commissioned to remix Claptone and Blaenavon’s track ‘Alone’, seeing the German artist ranking high in the charts once again.
2019 proved to be one of Sikora’s busiest years yet, with further releases throughout the year including a collaboration with Flo Mrzdk, a remix for Marc Werner on Kittball, as well as the release of the third volume of Juliet and Tube & Berger’s charity project ‘It Began In Africa’, including mixes from Dario D’Attis, Flashmob, Josh Butler, Mat.Joe, Magdalena, and many more.
As we enter a new decade, both Juliet and Kittball look set to continue to prosper with a show calendar including appearances at some of the worlds biggest clubs and festivals, with an annual Kittball showcase during Sonar’s Off Week in Barcelona.
