Los Angeles native DJ, producer, and live act. ONYVAA is one of Europe’s newest imports that is rapidly rising on the global techno circuit. She was awarded ‘The Best Newcomer Award’ for the DJ awards in Ibiza and recently described by Richie Hawtin as ‘the future of techno’ with also a release on his iconic label PLUS 8 Records. During her live performance you can expect an energetic trip that is influenced by the timeless sounds of Detroit and early 90’s warehouse techno. Combining hypnotising loops that she constructs with her modular synths, groovy bass heavy drums, emotive pads and leads, along with her original field recordings she collects around the world.
Based in Europe, she is the owner of vinyl and digital label, Passeport Records, which is distributed and pressed by Word and Sound and mastered by Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin. With a deep love for obscure field recording, she captures organic sounds from around the globe, encapsulating its ambiance into her original tracks.
Laurent Garnier described her Passeport 007 release as “excellent dancefloor monsters....”, also supported by Marcel Dettmann, Richie Hawtin, Charlotte De Witte, and many more. Passeport gives her creative autonomy to release her original productions.
