Veteran DJ Uta, a member of Berlin's Through My Speakers collective, is an "old-school individualist" with eclectic taste. Together with Sarah Farina and Kepler she runs Rec Room, the go-to party series for devotees of UK-influenced bass music in Berlin.
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.
