Djuna Barnes – Urbanizer Mixes


Here’s 3 awesome selections from Danish DJ Djuna Barnes. Mixing it up with full meatskull approval, these are some of the more interesting sets i’ve seen in a while!

“From the point of being scared towards almost everything, I kinda stole my dj name from my favorite writer a couple years ago and then worked really hard to become something wild… with an alias and a lovely mask printed all over my face – everything sort of worked out rock’n’roll-wise. I began softly with a vision to mix lyically and to tell stories to the crowd, which of course nobody on the dancefloor understood… So from there i’ve just tried to mix something really arty with something really poppy, rave with candyfloss, straight beat with gay vocal and always a dykesong that are not sing-a-songwritten… I always try to surprice with my set and stage apperance, but still i like to have absoluly nazi control towards the floor…the audience should not believe that i have – let go” – Djuna Barnes
