Amelie Lens & Hybrasil

  • Amelie Lens is a self-confessed control freak. Every step of her journey as a DJ so far has been the result of her own obsessive attention to detail and laser-focussed determination which permeates everything she does. Nothing is left to chance. The often-referred to 'explosion' with which the Antwerp native made her way into the global techno scene has been the result of a long-standing love affair with dance music, ignited by her first outing to Belgium's Dour Festival at just 15 years old. Techno had Amelie at ‘hello’, and she spent the rest of her teenage years crossing Belgium by train to attend gigs, hypnotised by the new world that was opening up to her. Live artist and sound engineer, Hybrasil first learned his craft working on NEVE consoles at Temple Lane studios in Ireland. After moving to Berlin he was signed to Radio Slave's Rekids imprint, debuting with 'Afra EP' and released a series of 12” on his own self titled vinyl label. Following her previous sellout District 8 performance we expect this one to be no different!
