Before Black Lotus rocked dancefloors at festivals like Exit (Serbia) and Forte (Portugal), she pursued medical instrument engineering. The enigmatic artist, who prefers that people always use her moniker as opposed to her real name, also dabbled in several other creative fields like acting, art direction, sculpting and photography.

However, the composer, behind underground anthems like Aether, admits that she’s always loved science and technology. “It all starts with my father being an electrical engineer,” shares the Berliner, elaborating, “He taught me a lot when I was a kid and we used to build small robots and create interesting electronic gadgets. Later, I studied medical instrument engineering.”

The DJ, who is now a regular fixture at KitKat Club and Suicide Circus Berlin – venues considered to be the cornerstone of Germany’s techno scene.
