San Francisco-born, Berlin-based artist Chloe Lula has been involved with the electronic music scene for more than a decade, helming record labels and throwing parties for years before beginning to DJ.
She started producing her first live sets in 2019, when she completed a month-long artist residency with Drew McDowall of Coil. The experience ignited her confidence in composition and allowed her to combine her classical cello training with electronics, melding granular synthesis with acoustic riffs and metallic percussion to create an alloyed brand of droned-out industrial electronica. Many of these jams ended up becoming tracks on her debut EP with aufnahme + wiedergabe, where she’s been a resident for 4 years.
As a DJ, Chloe has played at Berghain, Tresor, Reaktor, Movement weekend in Detroit, and countless clubs, festivals and DIY parties across the world. She’s performed regularly alongside artists like Ron Morelli, Silent Servant, DJ Hell, Broken English Club, Reka, and Thomas P. Heckmann, becoming known for atmospheric sets that dig deep into niche releases and span electro, wave, industrial, techno, acid, and synthy experimental. In addition to her career as a DJ she is also a music journalist and collaborates with the newly established online radio Refuge Worldwide.
