Born in Barcelona, Agatha Pher is part of the new sound wave of the electronic scene. Fleeing from stereotypes and pre-established norms, the DJ and producer has interrupted in half-world clubs. Amnesia Ibiza, Folklor Suiza,, Promise Canada, Florida 135 Spain, DGTL Barcelona, Café del Mar Thailand, Octava Colombia or Rhodesia Mexico already know how this figure of electronics is spent.
Lola Villa is a producer and DJ from Colombia. Her travels have brought her closer to her roots, taking her audiences on a sonic exploration of the American and African continent through a digital lens.
In terms of sound, Lola talks about Magic Realism––a mixture of cosmic elements, traditional sounds and raw textures. When playing, Lola invokes fire, wind, water and earth, the smells of the Amazon rainforest mixed with thick, nasty and,utterly sexy 80s-inspired bass lines and synths.
By adding live and acoustic elements to her performances, she sets the tone for engaging and uplifting sets.
She’s a vivid advocate for an inclusive industry and a safe dance floor, putting together workshops for aspiring female and non-binary DJs and musical meet-ups in cities such as: Tunis, Lagos, Amsterdam, and Washington D.C.
Her philosophy: dance music needs disruption, it needs poetry, it needs more people who cannot afford it. Dance needs more people of color, it needs more riot girls, and kranky queers.
Lola is currently based in Washington D.C.
