Vanessa Sukowski (DE)
With great musical sensitivity and a big passion for Techno the likeable Thuringian is providing her listeners with driving hypnotic basslines. By combining the natural beauty of raw, banging Techno and her little weakness to reimagine 90's acid & techno classics she lifts her sets to another level. With enthusiastic digging for records to satisfy her curiosity, she sets high demands to her mixes. The result: pulsating, unique and timeless techno from stripping back to the 90's right about the present up to the future - a well picked and unique track selection with maximum dancefloor impact. National and International stages are becoming her natural habitat. Playing several gigs in Switzerland, France and Belgium clearly show where her journey is heading. She has already played alongside the biggest names in the industry since she started in 2013. Ellen Allien, Felix Kröcher, Monika Kruse, Dr. Motte, Pascal Feos, Torsten Kanzler, Frank Lorber, Marika Rossa, Len Faki - just to name a few. Vanessa took the first steps in producing music in 2015 with Contests and several Remixes, but it quickly became a goal, to release a record of its own. With her first EP released on Great Stuff in 2017, Vanessa is striving to move forward, determined to take even bigger chances and go deeper into the sonic spectrum of Techno music. So 2019 started with a banger. 5 Weeks on Beatport #1 with „Lucanus Cervus“ on Insectum Records. Then her four-track-EP „Unknown Signal“ was released on ReWasted Records. Remixes were delivered by Ben Dust and Sebastian Groth beside two Originals. The EP reached #7 on Beatport. Vanessa's label and side project „Equivalent Berlin“ went to the start with a track called „Teufelsberg“. The second release „Kraftwerk“ reached #21 on Beatport Hardtechno Charts immediately. Equivalent-Tracks and Videos are related and dedicated to the german capital and it's special places and areas. Mesmerizing lighthearted performances and a literally unique techno style already brought this Whirlwind to various stations. Here are some selected References.

To get and stay in touch with her audience is very important to her. It’s simply an unusual combination of a heartwarming personality and this rough, explosive sound. Vanessa is increasing her influence in the scene and has already become a serious and independent artist. With a constantly growing Community in the back and her intention to never settle she combines the best credentials for a rising artist in techno music. Musically fearless, above and beyond the norm. So, close your eyes, open your ears and be part of her journey.
