Mix Series: 017 - Ivana Karpierz
We’re pleased to release this quality set from Poland-born, San Francisco-based DJ Ivana Karpierz. While known for the more minimal and dubbier ends of techno, she displays a varied and deep crate of more dark and leftfield sounds here. Ivana has shared lineups with Molly (Rex Club), Tommy Four Seven, Barac (Pressure Traxx), Artefakt, Praslea, Deepbass, and Jamaica Suk (Gradient), and is a resident of the woman-centered dance music monthly Supervixen.
She’ll soon be opening for Nastia (12/16 @ Audio SF), and finds herself inspired by Nina Kraviz’ трип, Shifted’s Avian, along with being firmly rooted in the Romanian minimal sounds of a:rpia:r. She prefers to not follow specific labels, instead keeping an open mind to anything that is “dark, twisted, mind bending , edgy and psychotic.” In pursuite of her favorite moment - “When you catch that crazy connection with the crowd. That insane exchange of energy, it’s just magic.”
