Adriana Lopez

Bogotá-born, Barcelona-based techno purist and skill icon, Adriana Lopez, has been a scene-wide inspiration for over two decades now and creates an exceptional, atmospheric momentum with every performance..." - Stone Techno Festival, 2023.

The DJ, producer, and label head has showcased her distinctive style of raw, hypnotic, and driving techno through releases on labels known to nurture this sound, such as Spanish labels PoleGroup and Semantica, as well as Stroboscopic Artefacts, Modularz, BPitch and her own label, Grey Report.

Adriana embarked on her music career in the late '90s, starting in her hometown of Bogota. During this time, she cut her teeth holding down residencies at prominent clubs like BarC, La Sala, and Cinema, while also showcasing her talent across various cities in her native country.
