SHORT BIOGRAPHY
To call her the most important woman in the Austrian electronic scene would be an insult: Electric Indigo long ago reached a level where conventional gender definitions are obsolete. As a DJ, she enjoys international rank, and as a producer she¹s becoming even more influential.” (Sven Gaechter, Editor-in-Chief of Profil magazine and DJ)

Electric Indigo, DJ and musician, has rocked clubs, raves, and festivals in 35 countries. Her name stands for an intelligent interpretation of the terms “techno” and “party”. She started her DJ career in Vienna in 1989 with jazz and funk sets, but soon found her style in the Detroit and Chicago techno sound. In her Berlin years (1993-1996), she was responsible for purchasing and communication at the legendary record dealer Hard Wax. In 1998 she created female:pressure, an international database for female DJs, producers, and visual artists who work in the fields of electronic music. female:pressure is a unique, web-based resource of female talent all around the globe and was built to enhance mutual support and communication as well as the general level of information about female artists. In 2002, DJ Electric Indigo played on the main stage of Detroit’s Electronic Music Fest. 2004 she began to perform live – either in collaboration with musicians like Mia Zabelka, Dorit Chrysler, Pia Palme (mostly in some kind of art context ) or solo in clubs. 2003 Electric Indigo started her own record label indigo:inc recordings. For almost 7 years she has hosted a monthly indigo:inc night for “crazy” at the viennese flex club and since the beginning of 2006 she has presented a monthly radio show at the Vienna based play.fm called indigo:inc as well. 2007/2008 she produced the female:pressure dvd1, released on march 8th, 2008.
Her numerous recordings were released on lables like disko b, mueller, international deejay gigolos, indigo:inc, chicks on speed records, female:pressure.
