Inanna’s novel and atmospheric sound has a melodic sense rare among her knob- twiddling contemporaries. She spares the glitch and tweaking in favor of something a little more organic and emotional. While the latter may be a dirty word in electronic music, her music manages to trump any expectations of the tag, subtly giving some class to the concept. Beneath the surface of crystalline, alien textures lies a warm, undeniable human element.
Her precise, masterful mixing style has earned her quite the reputation for both creativity and raw talent. Her amalgam of heady ambience, bass, jacking house, breakbeat, and minimal techno are sophisticated and surreal, showing an amazing diversity of style that The Freshpage describes as “works of art that need to be displayed in a music vault at an audiophile museum”. While her recorded mix sets are most often experiments with found sound and hypnotic, dreamy soundscapes, conversely, her live performances serve up a more high- energy, cutting, late-night warehouse vibe.
Inanna first gained notoriety in the late 90’s as one of North America’s premiere garage and 2-step DJs. As the US’s ‘first lady of garage’, Inanna was resident at one of the first garage weeklies in North America, helping to establish the sound that laid the early foundations for the grime, bassline, and dubstep sounds. Inanna has watched and grown with the evolution of the garage, continuing to be inspired by the genre and its predecessors. Her label imprint, La Folia Recordings, features past and future dubstep and bass releases.
La Folia Recordings, a multi-genre label project which debuted in early 2008 and boasts releases by Moonbeam, Douglas Greed, An on Bast and Mathew Leutwyler. Releases are being played and supported by dj’s and artists such as Luciano, Terry Francis, Signal Deluxe, Dominik Euelberg, Konrad Black, Jennifer Cardini, Sascha Funke, Shelley Parker, October, Axel Bartsch, Ryan Elliot, Michna, Soda Pop and Soul Designer.
