AJELE

Zürich

“Looking back at 20 years of nightlife, I wouldn’t want to miss anything I’ve experienced, because it got me to where I am right now.It’s never been my aim to become a superstar DJ. I want to play music in steamy clubs for an open minded crowd. And I like to support other artists, whose music I like to play or whose repertoire impresses me. I’m not a one-man-show – I enjoy collaborating with people. Because one person doesn’t make a party.”

Since 1996 she’s an inherent part of Zurich’s electronic music scene. 2002 she started the event label Chicks behind the Decks – a wake-up call for female DJs all over the country, to arrange numerous events and live performances across a wide spectrum of electronic music. This activity got her in touch with similar organizations all around the globe; new contacts were made and new projects born.

2004 was her first summer in Ibiza and for three seasons Ajele played five nights a week at the bar Lo Cura, on of the coolest hangouts in town. It would get her the attention of several promoters and on their booking lists. For instance, she became a regular for “We love Sundays”, „Mulletover“, „Electric Lady Land“, „Nasty Dirty Sex Music“ at Space and “Manumission” at Privilege, Underground, Blue Marlin…

2007 Looking for inspiration in music and life, she moved to London for a year and back in Zurich, became a resident of the popular Hive-Club and a regular at Cabaret-Club (where she was hosting the event “I feel you” together with her friend Susanna).

In 2008 she started producing her own tracks and teamed up with Klaus Amrein (aka Cooky) to form the project KREIS ZWEI. 2009 they received the „Electronic“ award at the M4Music Demotapeclinic Contest.
