Born and raised in Italy, based in London since 2008, Elena Colombi conquered the underground through a series of successful parties that made a strong impression on the local scene. Ten years later, she’s become an established DJ and the proud host of her own show on NTS radio. Her strongest asset is probably her open-minded approach to music – leaving behind any labels and boxes, she navigates through genres and eras with freedom and confidence. Never mind the trends and the hits, she’ll go looking for the more obscure, under the radar tracks, which she’ll mix flawlessly, whether it’s on the radio or for a club night. The past two years saw her taking things to the next level, making her first steps into the art world at the Whitworth art Gallery and in London’s Tate Modern. She’s played major festivals like ADE, Lente Kabinet and Dekmantel, and we’re thrilled to have her over at Ampere Open Air.
