Veteran DJ Uta, a member of Berlin's Through My Speakers collective, is an "old-school individualist" with eclectic taste.
Schooled in classic house and techno as part of the German capital's thriving underground scene in the '90s, Uta's wide-ranging selections are tied together by her skillful technique, honed over decades behind the decks. An avid and adventurous listener, she hunts down hidden gems in second-hand record shops, mixing them with new and future sounds of bass music, grime and breaks. In addition to appearing at cult-favourite clubs like OHM and Hamburg's Golden Pudel, her sets have been beamed out via Berlin Community Radio, Boiler Room and the Berceuse Heroique mix series. Together with Sarah Farina and Kepler she runs Rec Room, the go-to party series for devotees of UK-influenced bass music in Berlin.
