On the Floor

Lena Willikens at Sónar Reykjavik

The genre-bending selector dives deep into bass, organic rhythms and scorching electro.

Lena Willikens’ origin story begins at the Salon Des Amateurs, the cult Düsseldorf club where she went from bouncer to bartender to resident DJ. Soon she became internationally renowned for her unpredictable picks ranging from krautrock-infused club cuts, obscure proto-techno, industrial boogie, synthesized disco, raw house and other strange sounds. Willikens never repeats transitions, and in this session she stays true to her mantra of surprising the audience – and even herself – with her curious selections.
