Charlie

Polish DJ Charlie, though born in Berlin, is one of the most active figures in the Krakow dance underground. She is the organizer of the SZUM - a series of events for which she invites artists associated with various genres - known and still “undiscovered” musicians; both Polish and foreign ones. Together with the curators Arkadiusz Półtorak and Martyna Nowicka, she organizes a “Handbook for City Dwellers” - a long-term cycle of exhibitions, musical events and film screenings devoted to the transformation of urban culture in the 20th and 21st century. Her dj-sets are suprisingly eclectic. Although she can easily match with the style of the artists that shares the stage with her, she eagerly chooses albums that are not from the same genre shelf. She often plays EBM, minimal wave, new beat, electro from the eighties and italo disco, but this is just some of her favorite genres. She played not only in Polish clubs, but also in well-known ones in Berlin, Paris, London or the Düsseldorf Salon. She has also performed at various festivals, including Unsound in Krakow and the first edition of Lava Festival, where she presented her own musical illustration for Maya Deren’s film. In her spare time she plays the piano and takes part in music workshops, developing her interest in jazz music. During Lava Festival II she will perform a composition inspired by Anger’s film „Kustom Kar Kommandos” (1965) about (erotic) relationship between man and his car.
