Over the past decade Kristin Velvet’s life has been devoted to music in one way or another - first as a promoter & DJ in Tokyo, then as the Australian label manager of UK’s Domino Records. Today she is an essential figure of Berlin’s club scene, heading up the fantastic Arms & Legs records - the label from Daniel Steinberg & Nils Ohrmann - which has featured a long line of killer remixes & releases from respected artists including Oliver Dollar, Paul Johnson, 808 State, Nick Holder, Jay Haze, DJ W!LD & Crazy P.
Velvet’s music acumen has been well documented within the label with her own productions gaining support by the likes of Maya Jane Coles who featured two of Velvet’s tracks in her BBC Radio 1 essential mix of 2015 and ‘Roulette’ in her Boiler Room mix of December 2016. Geared directly to the dancefloor her releases have also received nods from key tastemakers including Resident Advisor who hailed her ‘Big Bam City’ EP as ‘gleefully maximal, unashamedly nostalgic house... this is fist-pumping good fun from start to finish'.
Velvet’s music taste is broad and her flexibility behind the decks sees her traversing confidently across genres and decades but always with a keen eye on the dancefloor, a place she inherently understands. A skilled DJ who plays with a lot of heart Velvet looks like she’s having a lot of fun, her infectious energy earning her peak time slots across the globe everywhere from Chalet & Sisyphos Berlin, Arm Club Kassel, Le Petite Ban Paris, Revolver Melbourne to Subsonic Music Festival Australia.
