For real electronic music and party fans, Virginia, Steffi and Dexter will be playing live. Virginia and Steffi are resident DJs at Berghain’s Panorama Bar and infamous for their wild House and Electro sets. Not only are they prolific producers but Virginia is also an exceptional singer, with a beautiful soulful voice. For the TEDDY AWARD show they’ll be joined by DJ and producer Dexter for their new joint live set that will serve as a glimpse into Virginia’s vocal‐rich album, to be released on Ostgut Ton in the Spring.
Anna Naklab revived the Reamonn Classic “Supergirl” last year and went through the rooftop with it. To be exactly, to the top of the charts! Already in 2013, she sang a cover version of Chris Isaacs “Wicked Games” which got produced by a friend and was honoured with a platinum record in the Netherlands and Australia.
