Music Through Pictures - Vera

Music Through Pictures is where we attempt to highlight the relationship between art, sound, images and music whilst also getting an insight into the musical minds of some of our favourite DJs and producers...

German born Vera has become extremely influential for the female spectrum of electronic music through her elegant appearances behind the decks. Combining subtelty with solidarity, her music presents an intutive taste with an organic nature. With releases on Peron, Hello? Repeat, Oslo and Half Baked, Vera has become a firm female figure and her ability to move a dancefloor through her own and other artists productions is unparallelled. We caught up with her for our latest Music Through Pictures!

I'm reminded of my late teenager years, when we used to drive from my home town Heidelberg to Frankfurt to listen to Sven Väth at the Omen.Entering the "big city" by night was a magical feeling. It felt super cool :D
