K.atou started collecting electronic music at 17 and DJing at 18. Having moved to Corfu, she played frequent parties and hosted a radio show every weekend. Not long after she received a grant to study in the UK, and that was a very inspiring period. In the meantime she performed in different venues in Athens as well as famous Synch festival of contemporary electronic arts on the Red Bull Home Groove stage. In 2006 the NY label Goosehound assigned her as “foreign diplomat”. After a trip in US and Canada for music meditating, as she likes to claim, started working on music production. First found her roof under the respected Berlin based Einmaleins musik label. K.atou changed her base in 2006 from Athens to London and in summer 2007 moved to Berlin. Her online mixtapes, as well as her yearly appearance at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival’s after-hours parties have become staples of the underground house and techno scene and she has played at almost every major city in the US and Europe, as well as festivals such as Glastonbury and Rizzla event. This Athens-born lady is responsible for bringing fresh four-to-the-floor beats to her city’s clubs, but quickly outgrew her territory and transplanted to Berlin where her career skyrocketed to international recognition. Today she’s a globe-trotting DJ femme-fatale with a vault of Chicago and Detroit house gems that have become the core of her creative house-based sets. For this special occasion K.atou brings her tasteful and passionate good house music.
