When the DJ born Marea Stamper made the move from Chicago to Europe just over 5 years ago, it would be the start of a journey that would see her emerge as one of the foremost ambassadors in the world for house music and, importantly the culture it represents.
Always paying her respects to the origins of the genre in the Black and LBGTQ communities of North America, and a tireless champion for the rights of minorities, a dj set by TBM is at once an education in dance music history and a celebration of diversity and inclusivity. It’s this vocally outspoken and honest approach, that has won her fans from the underground to the mainstream, culminating (for now) in executive producer duties on Dua Lipa’s record-breaking remix album Club Future Nostalgia. Sónar 2022 marks a homecoming of sorts, returning to one of her (and our) favourite slots to close the Festival. It goes without saying that everyone is invited.
