An emerging talent of prominence hailing from Mexico, Lokier, as a DJ & producer is cutting a stream into the estuaries of techno, industrial, EBM and electro afixed with new wave, and its denounced varieties. While running the gamut of Berlin’s underground, from off-location raves to Panorama Bar and Tresor, her breech into the European circuit, although clandestine, has seen Lokier gain familiarity, further expounded through spots on Rinse FM and Red Light Radio.
Lokier’s diversity in style throws down an array of dramatic soundtrack moves for the dancefloor, banging beats, weirdo synth, and power electronics. With her DJ sets she has already travelled around the world and, with gigs in numerous important music venues: Robert Johnson, New York’s Good Room, Amsterdam’s Reaktor parties, Rex in Paris, and Berghain’s Säule. Her early production came through labels like Squirrels On Film and Boyz Noise Rec and is now hitting the stride after a debut record on Rotterdam’s Pinkman.
Presenting a high voltage kinetic between heavier body music and the dark intergalactic romance of electro, her tracks over the years have made their way to the edit pits of Mick Wills, Solar’s giallo horror platform Squirrels on Film, aufnahme + wiedergabe and Sacred Bones with a remix of The Soft Moon. Amid the regalia of gothic, and post-industrial music, Lokier’s plunge into the deeper esoterics of this sound only adds a fresh and inspired ethos to her work, aesthetic and vision.
