DJ style: Techno
Best known for: “Playing high energetic sets.”
One of techno’s bright young stars, Belgium’s Amelie Lens has continuously brought her high-octane sets to clubs and festivals across the globe for nearly a decade now. Her debut release, ‘Exhale’, on Lyase Recordings gained high acclaim and cemented her music firmly in the world of driving, peak-time techno. After releases on Drumcode, Second State and Perc Trax followed, she then launched her own Lenske imprint — and more recently EXHALE. They’ve been a solid outlet for her productions since their inception with tracks like ‘Trinity’, ‘Radiance’ and ‘Feel It’ released this year. EXHALE also debuted as a party series on the hedonistic island of Ibiza with a residency at DC-10 where she invited the likes of Ben Sims, Dax J, DJ Bone, ANNA, Farrago and many more to play alongside her.
Amelie continues to grow a solid reputation and a dedicated fanbase, with career milestones including headline status at festivals like Awakenings and Tomorrowland. 2023 saw her touring across Europe, Asia and the USA, and she’ll be returning to Canada this winter. She’s also revealed that she’s expecting a baby with her husband Farrago next year and is greatly looking forward to motherhood. Congratulations!
