Biography

Sonja was born in the Swiss Mountains in autumn 78. At the young age of four, she got in touch with her 1st instrument: the piano. Aside her classical music studies, she was on the search for other musical styles. As a depeche mode and david bowie young teenage fan in the late 80’s, she was a bit out of her time. With the wonderful discovery of KLF, acid music sounds and Electro rythmics she did while visiting underground and open-air parties all over Switzerland and Germany, she dived into the whirl of electronic music.

In the mid-nineteens, when the rave syndroma turned into a tasteless carnival, she devoted herself to weird parties organizations in several Geneva’s squatts during 3 years alongside the Mentalgroove crew. From djing to cleaning the floor after the chaos. At this time she gave up her piano studies for a new bought Roland R8, started to get professional bookings (Weetamix, Usine…) and to search for silence.

She began the new century teaming up with amazing friends. Miss Kittin opened her the doors, while Weetamix gave her a residency alongside Luciano. During one night in Tokyo, she played after dj Hell who decided to take her on the Gigolo roster. Musically speaking, she was not on the same side, but she got many opportunities to play her sound in various cities around the globe (including nice shots from Sweden to Brazil).

After several collaborations with artist- friends (Serafin, Dandy Jack…) and crews (Mutek Chile, Soap System Istanbul, Cosmic Chile Zürich), Sonja starts a new live/dj project named Junction SM in 2004 alongside DandyJack.
