Lena Willikens doesn’t play the hits. When she’s behind the decks, even her biggest fans often have no idea exactly what she’s playing, and that’s part of the magic. Like all DJs, Willikens of course has a passion for records and is always on the hunt for elusive bits of music, but as an artist, her work doesn’t hinge on any one track, or even a handful of tracks. She’s after something bigger, something that’s truly transportive for those on the dancefloor, and the tracks she plays – whether they’re bizarre slices of synth exploration, some ominously churning proto-industrial stomp or something else that simply defies classification – are all parts of a larger, more psychically satisfying whole.
Surround is a group of friends playing music together & an after-hours party dedicated to the sensory experience of being encompassed by music frequencies – and the community experience of being in a diverse room of friends, in a welcoming atmosphere of hedonism and play. As the name evokes, the vibe of SURROUND is total immersion into an inter dimensional groove, enveloped by cascading, sonic flows.
