FREYA [Solar Records / Universal Dance Records]
Deep, dark and twisted! A self confessed tune addict and massive fan of dark driving basslines, haunting melodies and barrelling percussive flavours, this technically solid mixer combines attitude with clever sequencing and dynamics – regardless of ‘genre’ or style. Favouring intelligent techno & progressive sounds, Freya’s distinguishable style continues to attract punters worldwide with invites to perform guest sets on various radio stations all across the globe.
Born into a musical family, it was inevitable that Freya (aka Krissie Zibell) would end up in the music industry. After studying classical piano, singing and music theory from a young age, she moved on to study musical theatre at University before being seduced by the intoxicating beats of electronic music.
Since making her DJ debut in London in 2007, Freya has firmly stamped her mark on the underground scene – both locally and internationally, as a DJ, host and promoter. In addition to a swag of international performances in the UK, Thailand, Vietnam and New Zealand, Freya continues to feature at major underground events and festivals all over Australia (Earthcore, Maitreya, Mushroom Valley, Mayan Summer Solstice, Southern Oracle) alongside some of her favourite DJ’s and producers including: D.A.V.E the Drummer, Ace Ventura, Grouch, John 00 Fleming, Fergie, Erphun, Quantize, Astrix, Slam, Protoculture, Liquid Soul, D-Sens, Fatali, Alex Smoke, Jiser, Lee Coombs just to name a few.
With a natural ear and flare for music, it was only a matter of time before Freya turned her talents to production. This year sees her spending more time in the studio, experimenting with original material and collaborating with established producers, all the while continuing to annihilate dance floors with her intoxicating sound.
A name to watch out for, Freya is one of the most exciting DJ’s circuiting the underground.
"Freya brings a devious presence to the stage, not just with her energy, excitement and enthusiasm, but with her unrelenting deep, driving and delicious beats…bringing the crowd to their knees in worship with every appearance!"
- Azrin [Zenon Rec.]
“Freya’s set was full of highs, lows and some awesome sweeps mixing up a fine selection of deep techno and explosive progressive. Having never been a huge fan of anything prog or techy for that matter, my fence-sitting days were over. Freya dropped tracks smoothly and frazzled some punters...they call this underground for a reason”
– ITM, Vietnow
