Learning her DJ trade alongside Steve Rachmad, Adam Beyer and Joel Mull, as resident at Amsterdam's club Mazzo around the turn of the Millennium, Estroe, AKA Esther Roozendaal, was an onstage presence at huge events like Dance Valley, Awakenings and Tresor, way before venturing into the studio.
Three years after her debut album, she releases 'Comfort and Closure' on the 14th of November via EevoNext. Softer and more delicate than her techno reputation might suggest, at it's heart, amongst swirling beatless instrumental and breakbeats, is a beating four four heart. This is also what you'll find on her podcast for us, with a tracklist covering Kenny Larkin (who Estroe played alongside at this year's ADE), Swerl and Kiki.
