A new year, a new chapter. Every artist, regardless of their discipline, needs to evolve. Infact, it is something inherent within creatives. The need to push the envelope, have new experiences, and share new creative impulses is deep rooted, and yearns to be nurtured. That is the position Rebekah find’s her self in during the early stages of 2016.
Celebrating 20 years since she first stood behind the turntables, Rebekah has established herself as one of the leading expo- nents of techno currently operating on the global circuit. Her love affair with the harder sounds stretches back to the legendary Que Club in her hometown of Birmingham where she drew influence from the likes of Dave Clarke, Derrick Carter, Richie Hawtin and Billy Nasty. The fact she now shares billing with artists of this calibre is testament not only to her talent, but the way in which her music has been received by the techno community.
Having made early inroads with EP’s on Naked Lunch, Smut Music, and Cult Figures, it was perhaps her remix of Matador’s “Blond Slackers” on Stolen Moments that really awakened a wider consciousness. Techno luminaries such as by Chris Lie- bing, Adam Beyer, Perc, Dustin Zahn, Tommy Four Seven, Alan Fitzpatrick and Sandwell District all had it as a feature of their record boxes.
With Rebekah putting the finishing touhes to her debut album, it appears as the demunitive artist with the ferocious sound is set to go from strength to strength in 2016.
