Esther Silex - Fusion Set Opening Bachstelzen 2019
In Addition to the stunning disco nights podcast from Esther Silex, here is the LINK to her Fusion set! Esther played the opening of the Bachstelzen floor at the infamous Fusion Festival this year. Playing tribute to legendary german punkrockers `Rio Reiser‘ and `Ton Steine Scherben‘ with her edit of ‚Rauch-Haus-Song‘ she made the audience dance with her hommage to the freedom of speech, culture and love.
NEW PODCAST FROM ESTHER FOR KATER BLAU
Esther Silex has an unquestionable status as an impassioned powerhouse with enough West German swagger to create timeless music with equal parts simplicity and beauty.
“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost” the larger than life modern dance choreographer and ballet director Pina Bausch once said. The Berlin based DJ and producer Esther Silex deeply believes in those words of wisdom and took the statement as one of many inspirations behind her debut EP “Pachamama” for Sweden’s finest free spirited electronic music label Studio Barnhus.
The EP title refers to the old mother earth goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes, who is an independent deity that has her own creative power to sustain life on planet earth. For Silex she is a divineness that follows her on each and every step as a female with groove in her heart.
After a nomadic upbringing all around Europe she started to play records at the tender age of 17 and quickly became an integral part of Cologne’s house and techno scene. Her sets are anything but predictable, with an eclectic selection that somehow weaves seamlessly through techno and house to soul, funk, afro and disco. They are always a reflection of her musical diversity and don’t adhere to any formula, whilst remaining entirely and explosively dance floor friendly. Since Summer 2019 Esther is officially KaterBlau-Resident and part of this legendary Berlin family.
Her new EP ‘AYNI’, will be released within the next 2 months on ‘LIKE records’. David Hasert and Esther founded the label some years ago, now it’s David’s baby and she is happy to return for some fun.
The Quechua term ‘Ayni’ which is rooted deeply in andean culture, can be translated as ‘Today for You, Tomorrow for Me’ - an Energy Esther strongly believes in. A form of interdependence based upon sharing and helping each other out so we all grow together.
