ROSWITHA

Roswitha

Roswitha’s introduction to electronic music took place in Amsterdam during the heyday of the extremely dry minimal. She became fascinated by the endlessly repetitive sounds and loops. Soon she wanted to feel and experience this music herself. Rattling turntables in cozy living rooms were soon exchanged for many underground parties and festivals.

The love for the simplicity of a loop versus the endless variety within electronic music remains an ever interesting playing field. The search for the emotion in a track plays a central role in the choice of records. Or as Roswitha puts it: “Imagine a captured moment of an emotion you felt, like a photograph. You can feel this emotion in the core of a good track. Musical patterns are repetitive so you can take a look at it from different angles. This is why I love techno music. It makes you free to feel your own life and all the beauty in it.”

Roswitha released her debut EP Fields together with Merlijn Nash, July 2020 on The Other Eye Label. Her endless penchant for researching electronic genres and his tendency for lyrical music create a golden blend. Beneath the broader story on their debut EP ‘Fields’ aswell as in their liveshows, every sound is microscoped with a love for warm synthesizers, narrative in sound and a pulse that drives you forward.

Besides her solo DJ performances, Roswitha regularly performs B2B with Paboona. She has been part of the line-up at Garbicz Festival, Into the Woods, Landjuweel Ruigoord, Berlin’s KopfUber, Shoeless and Alter Ego Amsterdam.
