As a DJ, Sooma lifts from her own experiences on the dance floor – working to generate an energetic, focused rapport with audiences. Shifting from downtempo Funk through the complex rhythms of World Music and arriving at hypnotic, peak-time Tech House has won her growing attention.
- Main Stage
Drawing on a sun infused, multi-cultural upbringing in the South of France, the young singer spent years in her hometown Montpellier, recording emotive Soul before turning her hand to underground dance music.
After moving to Berlin and arriving in the public realm with “Bold”, a collaboration alongside David Mayer which was released on Keinemusik in 2015, she continued to explore a driving variant of Deep House – percussive, tribal and inextricably linked to a childhood spent listening to her father’s record collection, which paired George Clinton with St. Germain & original African music.
Early exposure to this lineage runs rich through Sooma’s recorded work. “Dune”, her first solo track on Berlin’s Through My Speakers in 2016, was a testament to this deeply rooted love for bright, tripping drum programming & infectious bassline grooves and has since been followed up with regularly.
