Mirella Kroes is a strong mind with a love for nature, both spiritual and down to earth. This duality is reflected in her dj-sets. She favours the contemporary, deeper side of techno that is in equal parts enticing to the brain and captivating the soul. Mirella tends to explore the trippier, mental side of electronic music in her sets that echo a longing for the unknown. Space is key in her meticulously crafted organic builds that allow for time to appreciate the space between sounds and little details that keep it fresh. If you want to experience her musical vision take a plunge and submerge yourself in warm space and deep sounds at Motiv, the club night she runs in Amsterdam.
Hailing from the north of Holland, Mirella started buying records with her older brother who taught her how to mix at the age of 19. Tough loop oriented techno was the soundtrack to the local rave scene at the turn of centuries that fostered her career. Nowadays she prefers a combination of hypnotic and transcendental music with the occasional old school dance floor driver in between. She has over ten years experience and is a regular in Dutch and European clubs. Over the years she played in Doornroosje, Trouw, Studio 80, and at festivals such as Awakenings. She is a regular at club Shelter, where she has been given the opportunity to curate some of the club nights.
