Sarah Farina sprinkles positivity over the darkest bass. Her sets seamlessly blend bass-heavy footwork and futuristic beats with fearless forays through R&B and UK funky in an inclusive, unrestrained style that she’s named "rainbowbass."

Led by the early releases of Aphex Twin, Timbaland, and Boards of Canada into the dark clubs of Berlin, she was a driver behind the 2010 formation of Through My Speakers. The event production collective has grown to become a burgeoning record label, thrusting underground producers and DJs onto the decks of progressive club nights and the playlists of bass fans across Europe and beyond. Her position as one of Berlin’s premier DJs is cemented at her regular night Rec Room at OHM with DJ Uta and Kepler, and enforced by her work behind the scenes at New Forms at Watergate, a collaborative endeavour she runs alongside DBridge, Kabuki, and a number of artists from her Through My Speakers family.

Sarah Farina is recognised and revered by the best of her bass music contemporaries, with connections to crews worldwide including Teklife, Hyperdub, Deep Medi, Buraka Som Sistema and Exit Records. Capable of holding her own in line-ups alongside artists as diverse as DJ Storm, Laurent Garnier, Om Unit, Kode9, François, and Lunice, her sets unify the dance-floor, equally impressive to industry insiders and those who just want to dance.
