Enthusiastic, soulful and obstinate would probably best describe Janina, a Berlin born & based DJ, and above all a pillar of the German electronic underground scene for more than twelve years. After dropping out school and having bought her first turntables in her early years, Janina built a deep knowledge of electronic music and developed a keen interest in vinyls, while working at the Berlin renowned DNS Record Store. Lively and full of curiosity, it was obvious to Janina that she will dedicate her time and energy to music when she discovered the BeatStreet parties and got her first Perlon Records as presents. She has first been acknowledged for her active residency at the needs-no-introduction Club der Visionäre. She developed over the time a impressive sharp ear, peerless technical skills, an asserted signature, despite continuously evolving music tastes. First gig at Club der Visionäre at the age of 18, where she has been a resident eversince, Janina performed at the most legendary nightclubs of european capitals, with ears and eyes wide open to the crowd. She now plays regular sets for Klubnacht parties @ Panorama Bar, and got well-known for her endless sets at Ibiza Underground, Ushuaia, Macarena Club, Rex Club, Watergate, Arena Club, Monasterio and Katapult Parisian parties. While sharing the decks with Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Robert Hood, Fumiya Tanaka, Sonja Moonear, Margaret Dygas, Thomas Melchior, Cassy, Luciano, Carl Craig and other artists around the world, she is now playing twice a month as a resident of Monasterio Club in Moscow, one of the capital’s major nightclub. Passionate, creative and constantly willing to improve the electronic landscape, Janina is now focusing on her techno project, under the puzzling name of: JSR Having drawn unlimited inspiration from Underground Resistance pioneers, to legend Robert Hood, Cari Lekebush or Tresor’s techno scene, she likes to drive up the ideas further. Rumour had it that there might be a record label behind Janina’s darkened alter ego.
