Technostate Norway is very proud to present one of the most respected and cherished DJ’s in the world - Monika Kruse!
Monika Kruse's talent and dedication has made her one of the world's most highly-respected DJs and producers, she has ignited massive festivals and world renowned dancefloors with her crisp techno. She has rocked Time Warp, Burning Man, Ultra Miami and WMC USA - to name a few,
Her Tomorrowland set in the Netherlands grabbed a huge audience, with an astonishing 1.5 million live viewers.
Monika – whose first piece of studio gear was a Roland 909 synth before they were ‘vintage’ – still makes time to produce.
She is the founder of the highly regarded label “Terminal M” which releases countless songs from top artists such as ANNA, Victor Ruiz, Oliver Huntemann and many more.
In 2015 her label celebrated its 15th anniversary with a string of sold-out parties including a massive show at the Amsterdam Dance Event.
Monika’s work also extends beyond the dancefloor, In 2000 she founded a charity called No Historical Backspin to fight racism and homophobia.
Her charity work, like her DJ sets and her productions, is an expression of Monika’s faith in the transformative power of music. “It was my first love,” she says. “It was my best friend. It never let me down. In good times music was there and in bad times music was there.”
Wherever she plays, Monika’s unmistakable, passionate brand of dance music electrifies the crowd: “My ethos is ‘sweat with a smile,’” she says. “I give love to my audience, and they give it back. My aim is to help people forget what is going on in their life and get lost in my music.”
A son of the windy west coast city of Stavanger now residing in Oslo.
Mikael started DJing in 2010 and quickly got a residency with the Stavanger based "UNAUTHORIZED" nights which he still holds to this day.
Staying with Unauthorized and contributing to the Stavanger scene, where they’ve had many of both national and international bookings to the concept, moved him in the direction of a very minimalistic style. At the same time, he was also moving around in the Oslo circuit which gave him a perfect blending session for balancing his love for minimal and techno as well as his love for House.
After losing himself to minimalism over many years, a good cross between House and Techno is now what screams from his heart.
Round bass lines, warmth, depth, energy, space and love.
Carina discovered her passion for the House Music in 1999. Three years later she was standing behind the decks playing vinyl.
She is now a well known regular fixture on the line-ups in Oslo’s club scene, playing at Oslo’s top club venues such as
The Villa, Jaeger, Skaugum and is currently a Resident DJ at Elefant, to name a few…
These days she is participating in radio shows such as Modulate FM, Rauschzeit, 06am Ibiza
Underground Radio, Pils og Plater & P3.
Her talent is also shared in major clubbing destinations around the world, to mention some.. Miami (WMC), Ibiza (Beautiful people), Berlin (Goldengate), Barcelona (Off Sonar) Bansko/Andorra (Horizon Festival)
Her unmistakable style is rhythmic, ethnic, dark, aggressive with attitude, yet sophisticated. She always makes sure that the crowd get’s a real experience of underground quality music in the genres of Techno, Minimal, Deep House, Deep Tech & Tech House.
