DJ AMANDA XO
“A DJ who loves spreading deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere.” That’s how Amanda describes herself as a DJ. Never afraid to go too deep, her emotive musical selections are her own therapy. Having grown up listening to an eclectic combination of music including funk (George Clinton, Morris Day), European electronica (Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, The Cure), Hip Hop (Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dog), Amanda ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where she picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that she loves best: beautiful synth work, hip hop drum beats, brooding bass lines, and lots of vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling house beat. Although she loves playing in nightclubs, local bars and special events, her love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. As a producer, pianist, and promoter, she has found plenty of ways to express herself musically. “For me, it’s all about playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date.”
