Biography

  • Ellie Pettersson is a Barcelona dj/producer from Brazil. Although Ellie was born in one of the most colorful cities in the world, (Rio De Janeiro) during the early 80's she landed in country with one of the toughest climates in the world: Finland. Sudd..
    Although her father Dj Ademir, a Funk&Soul pioneer and 60’s radio jockey used to say: “Night life and clubs are not the best choice for a girl like you”, she soon would start breaking all of daddy's rules as her world rebelled and life pointed straight at music culture. In the years that followed, the transition between 2 continents have added a distinctive touch of Scandinavian electronic to her funky roots. Now days, her background and heritage are very much present in her live sets, think of Scandinavian precision and endurance in harsh conditions washed down by the ever glowing positive energy of a Brazilian. Besides being always highly involved in promoting the young fresh and forbidden electronic scene in the early 90’s in Helsinki Ellie has also worked on Finnish television, Channel 3 in one of the first TV programs ever made about Electronic Music in Finland: Yurkki, Electric Circus. In Electric Circus she saw the fresh Electronic scene being portrait on TV. Some years later, armed with just a suitcase and most of her vinyl collection, Ellie moved to the United Kingdom. The 90`s London was a frantic madness, alongside Tall Paul, Sister Bliss, The Prodigy, Boy George, Seb Fontaine, Pete Tong, Judge Jules, who had taken London by a storm. The sounds generated in Turnmills welcomed evenings amongst the brotherhood of those who moved the music, the night life of West End and a whole industry behind it. Generally, Ellie always continues to evolve and become ever more intimate with her music. Her sounds are high end Deep Tech, Minimal,Tech House, and Techno. Her debut album Paradise Groove EP alongside studio alter ego, Tim Rolan and licensed by Bootleg Social records have received early support from Eric Morillo, Syke & Sugastarr, Brandon Block and one living legends of house Music, Tony Humphrey. Experimenting outside of her usual elements of Tech House, Minimal and Techno her follow up release through aLOLa/SexOnWax, shows a more Deep House sound with “Barcelona Sunrise EP” a languorous 2-tracker with clean lines and streamlined beats that lays the groundwork for sublime synth work by label boss Omid 16B takes an altogether more hypnotic, percussive route with his remix, equally doing justice to the title of this release, 'Barcelona Sunrise'. 2015 sees Ellie going back to her element by releasing Max Destruction, a true Tech House and Deep Tech imprint with Love The Underground records that it is set to hit the market in early spring.
