Seattle-based DJ and producer LUMI is celebrating International Women’s Day in style by delivering a dose of techno that will dominate your soul.
The house and techno scene is booming, and there’s a new wave of artists, especially women, who are helping shape the future as they carve out space for themselves. One of those talented DJs is LUMI, who originally hails from Helsinki but has since created a home for herself in Seattle. She took her first steps in the music realm with choir and piano but developed a passion for the sound of techno and hasn’t looked back since.
The past few years have seen LUMI hone her skills behind the decks as she’s continued her sonic evolution, and she’s impressed with each passing set. Not only has she become a fixture at nightclubs in Seattle that include Kremwerk and Ora to open for the likes of Pan-Pot, Sam WOLFE, and Teenage Mutants, but she’s also taken the stage in San Diego and Santa Barbara along the way.
In my life, it’s the women that have supported me or said my name in rooms full of opportunity; they have a special place in my heart. Navigating this industry, in all of its complexity, it is incredible to have women that have your back, and you also have theirs. Winning together is the goal.LUMI
In honor of International Women’s Day, LUMI spun up a mix that’s filled with some fantastic techno cuts that will surely get your body moving to the beat. She also shared some insight on who inspires her the most. “The women that I look up to in dance music, and techno in particular, are the ones that make their own rules, are true masters of their craft, and aren’t afraid to push the boundaries in both their productions and their DJ sets,” LUMI said. “Artists like Nicole Moudaber, Nina Kraviz, Miss Kittin, and VTSS. I think she’s such a baddie!”
