duchess Karen Gretarsdottir Reykjavik Born into a musical family in Iceland, Duchess grew up living rhythm and melody, and reveals a musical taste that is versatile , experimental and unafraid. Upon moving to Los Angeles, her playful, genre-bending sets started leaving people very interested, and she quickly rose up the ranks of becoming a household name in the underground scene. Sculpting her ethereal sound with emotion, raw. percussion and melody, combined with both electronic and acoustic instruments, Duchess has an organic way of delivering a unique blend of sounds and engaging with the crowd, as the necessity of diversity throughout a set comes natural in an exceptionally smooth and gradual way. While channeling her European state of mind through her sets, she. never. fails to make people move on the dance floor.
