SPFDJ Heads To India For A 2-City Tour
1 July 2019
Known for delivering blisteringly high-tempo techno with an uncompromising attitude, Lina Jonsson aka SPFDJ is heading to India for a 2-city tour between July 19-20. The Swedish DJ will perform in Mumbai, before heading to New Delhi for the next edition of Wild City series ‘Various Artists’ which will feature Likwid and Shireen as support acts for the night.
When designing her merchandise, Jonsson took a shirt and smeared it with the words: “techno, acid, trance, hardcore, anal sex”. That, in itself, is a true reflection of the devil-may-care attitude and genres that define SPFDJ – though replacing the last two phrases with EBM and industrial give a more accurate idea of what to expect from her DJ sets.
The debauchery and a self-professed affinity for hard-hitting kicks thrust Jonsson into limelight as she helped transform Berlin’s queer-scene with her residency at the notoriously hedonistic party Herrensauna. At the back of her bubbling reputation, Jonsson also established her own label ‘Intrepid Skin’, through which she showcased the works of her contemporaries like VTSS and Nene H.
Expanding her meteoric reputation through a busy schedule of prominent international dates and imaginative parties with London all-female collective Universe of Tang, SPFDJ has added a dynamic edge to her ever-dark sweat-soaking sound, which Ben UFO describes as “utterly ruthless” – well captured in her Boiler Room set below.
