artist biography

A product of Sweden’s seemingly endless conveyor of techno talent, Ida Engberg has carved herself a career as a DJ/Producer through relentless hard work and passion. Now an internationally recognized talent whose taste for stripped back, sweat on the ceiling tech-house and techno has been the driving force behind a career progression; Ida can boast a growing production catalogue as she continues her elevation through the electronic music ranks.

Having picked up the DJ’ing bug at the age of 14 Ida progressed from playing records in her local youth center to her first gig in a small bar in Stockholm when she was 18. The bar gigs lead to club gigs and to warm up spots for international talent that passed through Stockholm’s infamous Cocktail Club where Ida became a resident. Through contacts and incidents Ida began to secure bookings in outside of Sweden. While in Marbella, Ida was offered the chance to work as a resident DJ over the summer. This experience gave her the confidence to push things forward by relocating to the Mecca of parties and craziness- Ibiza for a full season in 2005. "Being there was so inspiring, I think taking that journey has definitely played an important role in my career and lead me to where I am today.”

When Ida arrived back to Sweden she put this inspiration to work and began to produce her own music. The result was ‘Disco Volante’ a track which gained massive support and topped sales charts all over the world. After some further releases on labels like Get Physical and Truesoul she recently had a release on one of the biggest and most respected techno labels in the world- Drumcode. She also did an official remix for Depeche Mode.

Ida can be found playing her brand of techno and tech house in clubs all over the world every weekend. 2010 and 2011 saw Ida rock parties at Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Exit Festival Serbia, Extrema Norway, Tomorrowland Belgium, Dance Valley Amsterdam, Miami’s Sunday School for Degenerates, Space Ibiza & Miami, Cocoon Frankfurt, Panorama Bar Berlin, Old River In Neaples, Awakenings Amsterdam, Ageha Tokyo and Amnesia Ibiza & Milan amongst many others. She is also taking part in the Drumcode 15 years tour together with Adam Beyer.
