At 19 years old, Alina is a rarity in the modern dance music scene. She completed her DJ course in Mixlabs music academy at 15. With a gifted ear for underground sounds she draws influence from house legends such as Kerri Chandler, Frankie Knuckles to the more modern Terrance Parker and Jimpster. Always eager to push her sonic boundaries and evolve her sound, she has also opened for artists such as Stellar Om source, Carl Finlow, Kini Rao, Unnayana, Stalvart and more.
A seasoned hand on the subcontinental indie soundscape, Anushka’s sonic style is constantly evolving, innately exploratory and yet distinctively recognisable. Characterised by a firm grounding in electronica, her DJ sets are layered with bass heavy beats and edgy breaks ultimately ensconced in a darker, moody veneer. Her versatile approach always lends itself to current influences – at present 4x4, left field bass, house and techno dominate.
