Ida Engberg – A product of Sweden’s seemingly endless conveyor of techno talent, Ida Engberg has carved herself a career as a DJ/Producer through relentless hard work and passion. Now an internationally recognized talent whose taste for stripped back, sweat-on-the-ceiling techno and her discerning ear for deep house, Ida possesses a growing production catalogue as she ascends amongst the electronic music ranks. Having picked up the DJing bug at the age of 14, Ida progressed from playing records in her local youth center to her first gig in a small bar in Stockholm by 18. The bar gigs led to club gigs and warm-up spots for international talent that passed through Stockholm’s infamous Cocktail Club, where Ida became a resident. Through contacts and events, Ida began to secure bookings outside of Sweden. “My tactic was to say yes to every opportunity I got to play somewhere, I basically just followed my heart and inner path”, remembers Ida. While in Marbella, Ida was offered the chance to work as a resident DJ over the summer. This experience gave her the confidence to push things forward by relocating to the Mecca of parties and craziness, Ibiza, for a full season in 2005. “Being there was so inspiring, I think taking that journey has definitely led me to where I am today.”
