Leipzig-based artist and DJ Valeska's sets and mixes are driven by an enthusiasm for ever-changing rhythmic structures, unheard sounds, vigorous stabs and kicks, and uneasy moods. On stage, Valeska's sets quickly shift from soft embraces to heavy hits. Her musical excursions she undertook on tapes for the local Prepaid Records label as well on the decks of Leipzig's mjut club, where she's a regular guest, and in numerous other contexts. Other than that, she's part of the DJ collective L1CK, which traces modern currents of club music and uncovers new movements for ears and feet.
