Celebrating 20 years since she first stood behind the turntables, Rebekah has established herself as one of the leading exponents of techno currently operating on the global circuit. Delved in to the deeper side with more ambient and breakbeat tracks, some vocal overlays but not forgetting that the dancefloor is where her heart will always be, her 2017 tour is planned with a new hybrid live set – which stops in Paris at La Machine du Moulin Rouge on October 6 with BLIND Series crew. Behind the scenes with this amazing artist.

Pringles in my hotel room, I justify them by dancing them off whilst I play.

The Interstellar sound track really moved me but generally anything Hans Zimmer does is pretty epic.

A record you regret not to have?
Jeff Mills – “Wavetransmissions 1“, its my next purchase on Discogs, just building up the courage to spend 50 euros on a vinyl !
A « Hard Life » anecdote you could share with us?
Not sure if this is the right kind of answer but I think we all need to be kinder to one another online and to accept that we all have different opinions, there are no right or wrong only different ways of looking at things.
