As Hyperaktivist, Ana Laura Rincón blends hyperactivity with activism in developing electronic music culture in her native Venezuela – a country with few record stores and few electronic music industry affiliations.

Upon discovering the small underground electronic music scene in her hometown of Maracaibo, Rincón began organizing events, DJing along with friends and invited musicians. Later, she co-founded the SOLO club, which became a prominent and central space for electronic musicians and DJs from throughout country. She also formed the Next Phaze collective, comprising DJs, street artists, VJs, visual artists, and graphic designers. The endeavour gave rise to a new concept of electronic music events for Rincón, in which visual environments are created using techniques like video mapping and 3D imaging.

Following completion of a degree in Mass Media, Rincón relocated to Berlin in early 2012, where she is currently producing her own music and studying sound engineer. Her sets are powerful, deep, and stylistically fluid, without subscribing to one particular sound or genre. In her view, there is too much quality electronic music today to impose such limitations and, in her words, “we should play it and enjoy it all, knowing the right boundaries of course.”
