Bandulera (Gianna Panini) was born on Sardinia in 1992 and is currently residing in Hamburg.
As a resident DJ and promoter she is a prominent figure within Hamburg’s subcultural bass scene.
Bandulera breaks the apparent boundaries between genres within the new bass school, and combines them in her sets so accurately and lustfully, that it seems absurd that music styles like Dubstep, Grime, D'n'B, Footwork, UK Garage, Trap, favela funk, tropical and kuduro are separated from each other in the first place.
Her fearless and elaborate combination of supposedly distant sounds is the Sardinian Bass Madonna’s secret recipe for success. She explains the current hype around her sets as simply playing what she loves. Her eclectic taste which is more multi-dimensional than what is typically intrinsic to monogenic parties, brings together what belongs together, at least when you look at the history of the bass culture, and listen to your hips.
Bandulera has been part of the hard-hitting event group "Hoch10" since 2013, which has been refreshing and reviving the Drum'n'Bass scene within Hamburg for 17 years now. In 2014, she founded the Funky Kartell collective, with the help of her DJ friends, whose similar concept also aims to bring together different styles of music. In Hamburg’s infamous cult club “Goldener Pudel”, which was unfortunately closed due to a fire, her and Cindy Looper held residency together. Similarly, since 2015 she has been an integral part of the Astrastube Musikkultur e.V.'s, in which they promote and cater for small, extravagant event formats that cannot be found elsewhere. These include subgenre parties, such as Hyperloop, which focuses on the fusion of techno and breaks, as well as including GrimeGrimeGrime - a strictly grime and garage party, which has already expanded to venues such as Hafenklang and Üebel & Gefährlich.
