5/31 - Subversion presents Worst Behavior Recs tour feat A.fruit - The Liaison Room
C R I S T I Ñ A is a Venezuelan-American DJ and promoter based in Philadelphia. She identifies as a third culture kid having spent her formative years in Panama, Italy, and Puerto Rico. Her musical selections run the spectrum, blending genres and drawing inspiration from her latinx roots & international upbringing with a strong undercurrent of Afro-Caribbean rhythms, bass and global club music. She keeps it underground, highlighting female emcees and producers with bootyshaking, high energy dance music intermingled with rude gyal vibes.
Previously known as the Teknacolor Ninja, Cristiña is making new waves under this moniker in lifting up the queer latinx music narrative for a global audience.
Cristiña began building her DJ chops at Florida State’s college radio, WVFS-Tallahassee (V89), getting exposure to an eclectic catalogue, turning her on to indie-based labels and music digging culture from 2006-2008. While living in Wilmington, NC, she developed her DJ persona and became a familiar face as “the downtown lady deejay” in 2009, holding a residency at The Odessa Bar and Lounge.
She’s been involved with a variety of global music event series and collectives such as Tropic of Bass (DC), Meso Creso (DC), TROPIXXX (DC), ESO! (Brooklyn), JunXion (NYC), Pachanga! (Philly), University of Tropical Sound (Barcelona), Generation Bass (music blog), and most recently brought her international sound overseas, back to one of her hometowns, Panama City, Panama.
On the local tip, she co-produces Vacation Beach with fellow mates WOLF DEM, spinning everything that fits within the #vacationwave spectrum from techno, dancehall and bass. Most recently, she's team up with east-coast bass heads Ripley and Sideswipe, throwing a bass-centric event not constrained by genre --Subversion. She is also a member of 24HrPHL.org, a civic engagement project, fostering community support and developing resources to articulate a vision for a more progressive Philly nightlife.
