With a catalogue of lush, explorative compositions and multi-genre spanning expertise, Knutsson’s sets are full of kinetic energy and unexpected detours that create singular, enveloping musical moments.

Knutsson’s range as a performer is centred around her ability to deliver emotionally stirring music in multiple contexts. 

Raised in a small village in South Sweden on a musical diet of stoner rock and Kate Bush, Knutsson’s earliest musical outlets involved singing in the church choir and learning to play electric organ. Finding herself deeply drawn to Berlin’s electronic music scene at 24, she took a year long sabbatical from her career, spending the next several months front and centre at Panorama Bar’s dance floor, studying the craft of inspirational artists. Forming her original production sound alongside fellow Berliner Hans Berg, Knutsson began releasing cosmic slabs of wax that seesaw between house and techno, which put her in high demand from remixers like Minilogue. She als runs the label ZODIAC 44 with Klasse Wrecks boss Luca Lozano.When she’s not churning out melodic techno transmissions, delivering a euphoric closing set in the morning hours of her monthly Berlin residency at ://about blank, or gleefully improvising as part of the Circle of Live collective, Knutsson’s latest passion has been a turn towards ambient sets and productions, such as 2019’s Tollarp Transmissions, whose evocative details paint a kaleidoscopically colourful recreation of her hometown.
