Hannes, a professional product designer, has been DJing as “Hans Disko” for many years.Hannes and Verena musically found together when Hannes was supposed to accompany one of Verenas performances on the piano. The rehearsal turned into a jam session and they realized their musical potential. Verena’s Voice in combination Hannes’ Beats and Synths quickly shaped into first sketches and later on into songs. Among them their best known song to date: “Captain of your Heart”.
“We consider ourselves more as a band than a project. We write our own material. We love that both of us can express their feelings, thoughts and intentions during production without limitations. Our Music is a mixture of Pop with electronic influences, deep beats on the one hand and chansons on the other; we really don’t want limit ourselves genrewise. There are so many possibilities and we love the freedom we have if we don’t stick to a particular genre. It’s wonderful to see how much of your innermost you can put into the smallest sound.
Performing live it’s our goal to move people. We don’t see ourselves as entertainers, we are more of a catalyst of that very moment. We make authentic music that we put hear and soul into, never afraid to lose control.”
Verena Wi & Disko gained live experience performing for example at Ritter Butzke (Berlin), Frieda's Büxe (Zurich), Sisyphos (Berlin), TIMES Wroclaw (Poland), Fashion Week (Berlin) to name a few. They are currently working on their first release together.
