Stepping up as the closing act at Jakarta’s infamous superclub Colosseum would be an intimidating moment for most seasoned DJs. For GIGEE, however, the experience was an effortless juncture in her already blossoming career. Taking Control of the DJ booth that night she displayed confidence which resulted in a packed dance floor drenched in sweat, losing their minds for the duration of her brilliant energetic Techno tinted set.
An exciting new face on the scene GIGEE is fast making her mark, her October 2019 debut EP ‘Reborn Pulse’ on Berlin’s favourite Katermukke, label of the famous KaterBlau club, shot into the Beatport Melodic House & Techno top 100 charts within days of release and was featured in a Spotify playlist by techno legend Charlotte de Witte. GIGEE is also fresh back from her second tour of Asia showcasing multiple dates in Thailand and Singapore while her next EPs are already scheduled for release and will be announced very soon. A few other notable recent key appearances include performing alongside London’s Metronomy, Andy Butler of Hercules And Love Affair, British house duo 99 Souls and underground Techno hero Rebekah.
GIGEE’s unique production and DJ style blends melodic house and techno with a progressive edge, a sound quite unique to her amongst the female DJ community. For years the Polish-born artist and entrepreneur has been immersing herself in virtually every aspect of the electronic music ecosystem, gaining insight of what is necessary for success as a producer, a music professional, and of course a trailblazing DJ. With a strong understanding of the inner workings of the culture, and a true celebration of the music itself, it was only a matter of time before GIGEE was ready to present her artistry to the world. This time is now.
Set to relocate full time to Paris in the near future GIGEE is poised to work on some, soon to be announced, exciting collaborations on the French music scene. Not her first time living in the French capital GIGEE spent a gap year in the city at the start of the decade, which became a defining period in her musical path. Exploring the vibrant underground Parisian culture, hearing the incredible tracks being spun and simply getting lost on the dance floor opened her ears (and mind) to the magic within the music. Early collaborations with key Parisian Music collectives, and subsequent sets at the renowned Batofar club, awarded GIGEE an early education into dance culture and fully confirmed her natural desire to get involved. This chance trip to Paris was all it took for GIGEE to alter her path from an economics degree into a career embracing her true love: music.
Beyond the clubs a long list of successful projects only further confirms her dedication to music culture. From being a finalist in the Red Bull-And-Battle (a challenge making spontaneous beats using nothing but iPods), being awarded for the ‘best bassline’ for her production efforts for Indaba Music, GIGEE certainly understand music production. She also runs her very own creative agency ‘In The Sound We Trust,’ and served to envision the music scenography for ‘The Voice of Poland’ during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Her hard work behind the scenes only shows GIGEE’s dedication to the culture from the most grassroots underground projects to large multimedia experiences alike.
As the above will testify GIGEE is a name fast on the up in the electronic music scene, her upcoming gigs in the pipeline will only solidify her talents behind the decks as much as behind the scenes. After many years gaining an impressive level of knowledge of every single aspect of the music world, working hard to craft her own unique sonic style, and still dedicated to time on dancefloors in the world’s best clubs, the future’s looking brilliant for this artist who’s just getting the party started.
