This female genius puts the magic where it’s meant to be-in the music! UK born but Australian bred Helena can take distinguished ownership of this role, securing herself as one of Australia’s most prominent female DJ's and electronic producers. Helena has come to be a worldwide icon showcasing her depth with electro, progressive and house beats and standing her ground with the sentiment that lies in her musical soul, while being the first female artist to be booked on Ultra Music Festival’s main stage in 2013. Yet its riding the charts globally that held her to the musical thrown where she can’t put a record wrong nor a tune out of key.
Taking the reins, it is no doubt the sublime musical selection that lies within this untamed contessa’s sets originate from a perfectly organic talent within. From a young age her classical skills on the cello and piano amplified into more when teamed with an electronic barrage. Out on Australia’s biggest club brand Onelove Helena’s debut single ‘Girl From Outta Space’ has contributed to the musical asset Helena is, sitting pretty at #1 on the Australian Club charts for four weeks as the first female to hit that spot! Her remix of Jono Fernandez & Pauls Paris feat. Amba Sheperd ‘Let It Out’ also smashed the chart’s top ten while climbing high on Beatport. Not only does Onelove have brag rights for Helena’s debut single but also on their successful compilation hit ‘Sonic Boombox’, mixed by yours truly alongside Acid Jack and industry hero Benny Benassi.
Seducing dance floors from Europe to Asia, Helena was always one to be reckoned with, extending her tour reputation over every continent and recently taking over the USA. The world’s hottest and most influential brands alike have been victim of Helena’s tempting musical fusions, while recent bookings on Ultra Music Festival 2013’s main and live stages alongside Swedish House Mafia, Major Lazer and Disclosure have followed. It’s at this time her recent single ‘Detox’ with Disfunktion on Onelove was dropped, roping in support from Tiesto and Nicky Romero. Being Pioneer Pro DJ’s leading ambassador, it goes without saying, the globe’s hottest acts have never been more than an ear shot away of lady luck.
Established and well tuned in Australia, music essentialists are treated to more than contagious sets throughout the best parties in the nation right over to the USA. Signed exclusively on SPIN Artist Agency alongside the likes of Avicii, Sander Van Doorn and Arty her first tour of the epic nation annihilated Lavo New York & Las Vegas, Mansion Miami, Playhouse LA and San Diego’s Voyeur. No stranger to adrenaline on a grand scale, this female boss of electronica has too captivated arenas at Australia’s largest music festivals like Stereosonic and Sensation White.
Taking the electronic world head on and tackling dance floors from Melbourne to Miami this musical empress will be of sheer importance to speakers near you. (DJ Helena biography)
