Hyperaktivist (VE/DE, dj-set)
It was in 2009 when Hyperaktivist started to work on setting the groundwork for her DJ career. Ana Laura Rincón blended hyperactivity with activism, developing electronic music culture in her native Venezuela. Upon discovering the small underground electronic music scene in her hometown of Maracaibo, Rincón began organizing events, DJing along with friends and invited musicians. Later, she co-founded the SOLO club, which became a prominent and central space for electronic musicians and DJs from throughout country. She also formed the Next Phaze collective, comprising DJs, street artists, VJs, visual artists and graphic designers. Following completion of a degree in Mass Media, Rincón relocated to Berlin in early 2012, where she is currently producing her own music and just finished a degree in sound engineering. Her sets are powerful, deep, and stylistically fluid, without subscribing to just one particular sound or genre. Read our interview with Hyperaktivist here.
