Born in the 80’s in a small German town near Bielefeld, young Denise Rabe was mixing, scratching and beat juggling beats by the age of sixteen. Her journey into sound led to experiments with House and Drum & Bass and this led to her move to Berlin in 2011 to further feed her need for music.
Shortly after a brief affair with House music, she surrendered to her roots and the darker side of music. In no time she was playing venues such as the legendary Tresor. Rabe’s development provided the opportunity to perform many roles, from radio show host on Berlin’s Sweatlodge, to artist booker for Ipse. In February 2015 she traded in her job as booker for her very own clubnight: HIDE and SEEK, carefully selecting guests the likes of Claudio PRC, Luis Flores, VSK, Hector Oaks and Madalba amongst many others.
2015 also was the year when she made her debut as producer, being part of the Mutewax 003 V/A. She truly made her mark shortly after this release, with the coming to life of her first solo EP “Penumbra,” on ARTS Records.
As a DJ, her sound clearly reflects a natural ear for music. Rabe combines a flawless selection and technique, resulting in a relentless and hypnotic groove.
