Biography

Being the resident Djane in Stockholm’s legendary Cocktail Club Ida worked out the sophisticated style of her DJ Sets for years. “I play deep house, tech house, funky techno, some minimal and sometimes some electro. Everything that touches my soul basically. I’ll always keep on playing underground electronic dance music.“, she confesses.

Ida Engberg was born in a suburb of Stockholm. She moved around a little, lived in Marbella and in Ibiza for quite a while. Now she settled on an island right outside Stockholm called Lidingö.

There’s one question of male fellows Ida has to face eversince she started selecting music: “How come you decided to become a DJ? – I mean since you are a girl and all???” The truth is Ida never really decided to become a DJ. It just happened as she reports: “My first boyfriend at the age of 14 was DJing and I thought it was really cool. He taught me how to mix a little bit but it wasn’t until I was 18 that I started to play myself.“

Her first gig was in a club that a friend of her was running. His ordinary resident was sick and Ida just happened to be there. “I said, ’I can play’, he just looked at me and said something like ’Yeah right’. I can’t believe I actually convinced him to let me play that night. It was great, I loved it!” A few weeks later Ida got asked to start playing in one of the biggest and most famous after-hours club in Stockholm called The Spy Bar. This was the beginning of her life as a DJ.
