Bio: Lady Blacktronika is an endlessly breaking wave of soulful sound. Her prolific productions, live mixes and podcasts have earned her the near-universal acknowledgement as “the first lady of beatdown house,” while Resident Advisor more recently described her as “the first lady of deep house.” She recently concluded a European tour including stops at Panorama Bar in Berlin, Loving Deep in London, as well as performances at Honey Soundsystem in SF, CubScout in LA and a private performance in Medellin, Columbia. A self-described black transwoman, she has had entries on respected podcasts like the Honey Soundsystem Potcast and Modyfier, is the creator of Cocaine Records, Sound Black Recordings & Sound Kemystry labels, with multiple tracks on Beatport and Juno.
