Steffi is a dj, label owner and party promoter in one. On first sight, this is nothing out of the ordinary these days, but when all of this is done as passionately and with high quality standards as in Steffi’s case, you better have a closer look. Until she moved to Berlin in autumn 2007, Steffi has been a motor of an Amsterdam scene defining itself in opposition to the commercial dance business in the Netherlands.
You can trust Steffi as a dj implicitly, in form and content. Her skills are extraordinary, as you can see when she really works the records and eq’s; no soft blending, but mixing in its original sense. She features a plethora of styles and varies every single one of her sets ranging from Electronic Disco, to serious Detroit- or Dutch Electro, whereas original, funky and fat House always will be her solid foundation.
Since 2000, Steffi runs her label Klakson together with Dutch producer Dexter. Apart from the special cover design (black and white photos), Klakson first and foremost impresses by music: Records by artists like Dexter, Fastgraph, Duplex, Seymor Bits, Putsch 79 or Mr. Cisco have been supported by the likes of Laurent Garnier, DJ Hell, Andrew Weatherall and Miss Kittin. It surely is an aficionado’s label occupying a gateway between ambitious club music and humour.
Steffi also promotes parties for almost a decade now. She started out with an Electro night in Amsterdam called „Elechicks“, followed by an experimental House- and Techno party named „Lomotion“. Most recently she hosted the ambitious “Boem Tsjak“ festival at Pakhuis Wilhemina together with Delsin’s Marsel. She also maintained a residency at Paradiso and has taken up a new one at Berlin’s Panorama Bar. Her career as well took her to renowned clubs and festivals like Melkweg, Doornroosje, Lowlands, Awakenings (all in Holland), Weekend (Berlin), Robert Johnson (Offenbach), or Kozzmozz (Ghent). And last but not least, Steffi has been first to bring artists like ADULT., Two Lone Swordsmen, Marco Passarani and DJ Assault to Amsterdam in order to provide for a seriously music loving party scene. With all those merits under her belt, there’s definitely something to look forward to. First she took Amsterdam, now she takes Berlin!
