In a recent live set, Erika DJ’d have using three turntables, creating dark drones and textures, in a set for Eye Teeth, an Interdimensional Transmissions sub-label.
“As a DJ she is pure id, this raucous mix of everything great about techno today and the stranger darker part of Detroit house, just tearing up the floor with devastating music, taking no prisoners, and burning down your village,” Gillen says.
According to the Interdimensional Transmissions website, Erika was running a BBS (Bulletin Board System for the noobs) from her bedroom before she was in high school.
