Techno / Electronica / House
A veteran of 15 years in the business, Onirika has been setting new standards on the Italian music scene. She is, without a doubt, the most important and talented female DJ in the country.
Onirika’s career began in the early 1990s, when she began taking part in rave parties in and around Trieste (her native city in Italy) and neighboring Slovenia. From the very beginning, she showed great musical taste, an impressive technique, and a nice style. Her fame grew fast–even faster when she decided to move to Rimini in 1998. She quickly became resident DJ in the most famous venues in town, among them Classic (well-known for its after-hours parties), Ecu, Echoes, and Peter Pan.
Onirika recently entered the world of music production. Her first record, "I Can’t Stand," produced with DotDj, was released on LDU Records/9rec and is still getting great feedback and rotation by some of the most famous electronic dance music DJs in the world. Onirika is working at Discopiù DJ Shop in Rimini, the most important in the country. These years, she’s demonstrating Groove gear for Roland Italy.
In 2000 and 2001, Onirika was the only woman DJ to compete in Bybloscar, an Italian award given to nightlife representatives.
Stefano Greppi and Andrea Doria are the colleagues whom Onirika most appreciates and who have had the biggest influence on her professional training. They have become her great friends, people whom she respects for their great professionalism and musical ability.
2004 was the year of the "Club Revolution" compilation on audio CD. It was reissued in 2006. Onirika mixed it along with the upcoming Italian talent Jonny20. This innovative compilation was the first Italian progressive-house compilation, and it garnered enthusiastic reviews in magazines such as Live, 365mag.com, Soundrevolt.com, and Disc-Jockey.it. Onirika also produced and mixed the first Italian digital compilation: Land Digital Under.
On November 2005, Onirika released "Lost in Tokyo." It featured her own vocals and a powerful remix produced with Andrea Doria for Freddy Mayers, also known as Fedex’s single.
Onirika is a true D.J., with a technique and a musical selection that have long been her trademarks. In Italy, she’s the only female DJ to offer alternative house music at the highest levels. Her DJ sets have been broadcast on national and international networks and Web radio, among them Proton Radio, Magma Web/FM Project Italy, M20 Italy, Afterhours/Doble Nueve e Lima Live Sessions Peru, Freshradio Greece, and MercurySession US.
For autumn 2006, Onirika and Massimo Nero have teamed up for a brand-new show on Proton Radio called Galileo.
Onirika and Massimo are also the founders and creators of Disc-Jockey.It. Today, the webzine and portal gets more than 5 million hits a month and has 10,000 registered users.
Onirika is also the owner of LDU Records, a digital label that very quickly has become a worldwide success. Many of its releases (Balance Promote and Release Promo, among others) have reached the top of the charts. Some have been inserted into Sasha’s Instant Live Avalon LA, Marc Romboy and Tommy Sunshine’s Systematic Sessions and Sandra Collins’ Perfecto Presents Part 2 compilations. Top DJ magazines like IDJ and DjMag have reviewed it.
Onirika has many projects in store for the future. Among them are an interesting partnership with Stefano Greppi’s Screen Recordings, more work with Andrea Doria, lots of new tracks released on her label LDU Records, and much more.
After 15 years and counting, Onirika’s reputation continues to grow…
