Zoë Xenia (NL)

Zoë Xenia's productions are marked by a distinct hybrid of funk fueled beats, melodic chords and rolling bass lines, married in harmony with her soulful voice, both as a lead vocal and as an instrument itself. She performs as a DJ and Live electronic that has taken her to all corners of the globe. Her original productions, collaborations and remixes have been released on iconic labels including; Plastic City, Suara, Kling Klong, Tronic Soundz, Toolroom, 1:53.2, Connaisseur, BassCulture and Kosmo Records. One of her first releases, "Cherish" on Connaisseur Recordings, became house tune of the month in the November 2007 issue of Mix Mag and she received great feedback on her BassCulture EP's from artists such as Radio Slave, Luciano, Laurent Garnier and Joris Voorn. Her track “Right Here Feels So Good“ on Spanish label Suara reached number 25 in the Deep House top 100 downloads on Beatport and the Catz and Dogz Remix of “You Got Me Started“ was charted as one of the Top 10 Tracks from April 2011. In 2012 she released her debut album 'Heartbeat' on German label Plastic City, a journey from down-tempo soul infused electronic songs to dance floor anthems, confirming her versatility both as a producer and vocalist. She also initiated a new project with befriended Swedish DJ/producer Cari Lekebusch with whom she creates a fine fusion between the darker sounds of Techno and the soulful sweetness of Deep-House. Their 'Good Love Sweet Love EP' on German label Kling Klong in January 2013, reached the Deep- House, Tech-House as well as the Techno charts on Beatport. Aside from producing her own music, Zoë Xenia has lent her distinct vocals to various other productions. Pacha Recordings invited her to come to Ibiza and record vocals for global all star producer Richard Grey. She wrote and sang "Matters of the Heart" for Tigerskin which was released on Steve Bug's Dessous Recordings, did vocals for Karada and Pedro Mercado on Rainer Weichhold's Gold Records and was approached by Kosmo Records to write vocals for the new mixes of BBE's huge dance-hit "7 days and one week". She also appeared in the promotional video, which has over a million views on TV and internet channels. With her powerful sets, soulful voice and her ability to produce sounds as if from another planet, she weaves together a hypnotic, ecstatic experience for the listener and an extremely funked up situation for the dancing crowd; an exchange of energy that dissolves boundaries, where music becomes a universal language.
