"My LOVE is Music , it's my life's ENERGY that makes my body move."
Angel is one of the few female producers gracing the hardcore scene. With her releases on Industrial Strength Records she cemented her position in the scene. This talented female knows how to motivate a crowd with her unique style which she describes as industial-schranz-core.
Angel (Angelika Mierzwa) hails from Poland. She discovered techno music as a teenager and very quickly fell in love with it.
Angel started playing and collecting techno and schranz records after moving to London in 2004 where she discovered its infamous underground free techno parties. In September of that same year she met someone on a train from Paris to London who noticed the bag of records she'd bought in Paris, and they started chatting about music. He told her that he used to run a radio station and that he still had a lot of professional DJ equipment sitting in his office that he would gladly donate to her.
Two weeks later boxes full of Technics and Pioneer equipment were delivered to Angel's door. In 2005 she had her first DJ performance. Angel was always on the lookout for raw and energetic new sounds. Her love for hard and noisy kickdrums led to her buying her first few hardcore records in 2007.
It soon became apparent that simply playing other people's music wasn't enough for Angel anymore. Inspired by a 2007 issue of Computer Music Magazine
she started writing and producing her own music. In 2009 she moved to the Netherlands were she continued to absorb all there was to learn about music and she was finally starting to get to the point where she could give life to the sounds that were floating around in her mind.
Many years of determined work led to Angel's first track “Like That”, which incorporated every element and style she wanted to hear in music: industrial hardcore, schranz and techno. The track very quickly garnered DJ support from some of the biggest names in the hardcore and hard techno scene such as Ophidian, The Outside Agency, The DJ Producer, Day-Mar, Fracture 4, Tymon, Broken Rules and Jason Little. Inspired by all this support she's been in the studio every free moment she can find to continue developing her new-found sound.
In 2011 she released her first 4-track EP “Distorted Thinking” on the legendary Industrial Strength Records.
In 2011 her tracks appeared on massive CD compilations such as
Syndicate, Thunderdome, Qore 3.0 and Project Hardcore.
Just two months after her release was out, her track "Like That" was
mentioned as one of junodownload's Best of 2011.
At the end of 2012 Angel joined a well known and respected Dutch booking agency The Third Movement.
In 2013 Angel was able to spread her unique underground industrial-schranz-core sound around the world. She performed on the biggest Dutch festival like Defqon.1 and Decibel and regular parties around the Europe. In October 2013 she was the first international female hardcore artist to play in Bogota, Columbia, but that wasn't the end of her international adventures. She finished the year playing a New Years Eve in Australia at Sydney Hardcore Network event.
In January 2014 she continued her OZ tour in Adelaide. This year you can catch her around Europe or busy working in the studio on her new EP as well as her biggest project ever. She is writing her first album that will be out at the end of this year as a CD format on Industrial Strength Records. In march 2014 she will be performing for for the first time in Japan! And again that's not all, there is much more exciting news but you will hear about it soon enough! :)
