Amelie Lens knows how to fill a room. The Belgian’s acid-tinged, no-nonsense approach to techno has put her at the forefront of the contemporary scene. Obsessive attention to detail and a stakhanovite work ethic have taken her from the crowd at Dour Festival - where, aged 15 she first fell in love with the genre - to the biggest stages in the world. She comes to Sónar 2023 at the top of her game, with her EXHALE brand establishing her as a label head, radio curator and event promoter, on top of her work as a DJ and producer. Take a deep breath, because her appearance Sónar promises to be an intense experience.
