Lena WillikensNothing trains a DJ more than a long lasting residency. A truism that the Cologne based musician and DJ Lena Willikens always proves when she spins her vinyl. For the past five years, she has been in charge of long and sweaty Friday night parties at Düsseldorf’s free-spirited club/bar Salon Des Amateurs. She is also a dedicated member of the Cómeme records tribe and all its missions: her name is frequently on the label’s party bills and she runs the monthly radio show “Sentimental Flashback” for Radio Cómeme. As a DJ, radio broadcaster, producer, and Theremin player, Lena is never committed to one style, all is welcome as long as it is twisted the in a one-of-a- kind way. She also produced the very special ghost wave track, “High Holes” for the vinyl only sampler “Kingii”, released by the Düsseldorf based label Slowboy Records. Her latest release is a contribution to the “Noise of Cologne 12” sampler. Here she delivers, together with Melanie Wratil (Institut Fuer Feinmotorik) under the alias Titanoboa, some heavy hitting industrial emotions. When she spins records she likes to let herself go in the name of dance and free thought. May it be obscure proto-techno, jacking spirits, industrial boogie, synthesized disco, raw house, or other outernational rhythms: in clubs like Golden Pudel/Hamburg, Plastic People/London, Moog/Bcn, or in festivals like Nacht Digital where she always surprised the folks and left them amazed about how expanded a crowd can let go and how far a DJ can move a dancefloor into unknown and bizarre spheres that stay catchy, while being edgy.
