German-based DJ and producer
"Creating music that doesn’t fit into a mold but is crafted from her own style, Soela aims to continuously express an often overlooked aspect of electronic music: sincerity. A dive into her catalog of releases on labels like Detroit Underground, Fauxpas Musik, Shall Not Fade and KOMPAKT reveals a signature sound that remains unrestricted by limitations, where tracks range from downtempo to deep house to techno while maintaining a musicality that is evidence of years of experience as a pianist and vocalist. Soela’s DJ mixes follow the same formula of experimentation and emotion, connecting to the crowd through diverse genres and blended rhythms."
- Lauren Krieger (5 Magazine)
"Soela may be a newcomer, but she is fearless. Soela is not only making magnetic and minimal techno, dub and house, but layering soft vocals into the mix. She is actively speaking out on feminist issues, inequality in the music industry and how to be your own person."
- The Calvert Journal
