When Siria found herself behind the decks for the first time, she never imagined that playing the kind of music she likes would take her this far. After a decade of spinning records, being inside the DJ booth has become a natural part of her life.
A Barcelona native, this restless Dj is a seasoned performer who’s taken part in various stage battles and played at all sorts of venues worldwide. One of her career’s proudest points was playing at Coachella’s Cruise Party in 2012 and SOS 4.8. In the Spanish capital, she names Sala Apolo as one of her favorite and venues where she used to play Cupcake, an 80’s-90’s pop music party night created by Nasty Garage.
Those musical decades strike a chord close to home, as Siria’s strongest influences range from the 80s, 90s and early 00s to fresh dance hits along with electro-indie tunes. Fun and an understated note of celebration is granted during her DJ-ing sessions. Our 77th FvF Mixtape is definitely a celebratory one since it dressed our ‘Friends’ book event in Barcelona. Albert Folch, ours and Siria’s common friend, chased the performer to put together a fitting and characteristic compilation for the gathering. “For this mix I wanted to go for something that would make people joyous and enjoy all the cool things in everyday life, much like Freunde von Freunden does.” Hope you enjoy this upbeat mix as much as we did and maybe you can get a slice of a great night in Barcelona!
