The well-known berlin based artist DJ Gigola, releases her first single, called Gratitude Practice from from her upcoming album Fluid Meditations set to be released on the 3rd of February 2023.

In her playful way of breaking down boundaries, she creates tracks with rhythm and groove. DJ Gigola calls her own music genre-fluid, meaning a hybrid approach, blending boundaries between Dance, Pop, Goa and Psytrance. This approach is also reflected in her name. Gigola derives from the ancient French Gigole, which means Dancing Woman. She want her listeners getting into the groove, moving the body and feeling good.

Like her previous tracks, the new single combines different styles, creating a fusion of an introspective practice. She explores aspects of meditation while connecting them with dance inspiring sounds. The listener is guided through this track with her calm voice, which Dj Gigola places against a background of low-pass frequencies, field recordings, breathing techniques and ASMR. These are synthesized with a blend of organic percussion, goa, and psytrance, creating a meditation practice that goes beyond traditional methods by decontextualizing elements of rave as a exploration of escapism.

DJ Gigola will debut her album in a live set at the 18th birthday of Berlin escapist club Berghain on the 11th of December.
