Fernanda Martins

Fernanda Martins was born in 1982, in Medianeira city, state of Paraná, Brazil. In love for music since she was very little, she had her life musically marked by genres such Rock, Pop and the New Wave from the 80s and 90s. The new sounds that were emerging, and consolidating themselves as new music styles, slowly called Fernanda's attention and fed her interest for the innovating sounds of electronic music. Her first contacts with this style of music were trough researches she did on internet and that leaded her to find and get interested for the work of Djs/Producers such, Carl Cox, Jeff Mills, Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke and Mauro Piccoto. Later on she would became interested for the work of artists such Dave the Drummer, Glenn Wilson, Adam Beyer, among others. Making it clear, from the beginning, the preference that Fernanda had by the most known sub-genre of electronic music, TECHNO. In 2002, Fernanda moved to Curitiba. There she had her musical taste very much under the influence of the “London Tech”, that was a very strong style on the city’s underground techno scene, witch she became a part of. Her interest for music, and mainly, for the mixing techniques grow up day after day. On April of 2005, Fernanda Martins started to dedicate herself to the art of mixing. In the beginning, Funk, Groove and Acid Techno were the main styles on her sets. Since the start, Fernanda has been always worried on improving her technique and ability when mixing all the different variations of techno. With dedication and hard work she started to call the attention of the crowd and known djs since her first gigs. Through the years, Fernanda began to expand the range of the musical possibilities and started to add more and more harder sonorities to her sets. Nowadays, you can hear she playing from the purest techno until the heavier hardtechno / schranz set! Music Production Since 2009, Fernanda started to research about music production. Slowly she started to dedicate more time into this. She is always researching for sounds that have their own identity, mixing that with elements that define her music taste such: strong kick drums, melodic synthies, industrial textures, dense and tough bass lines and a lot of percussion. In 2009 she started managing two labels. AudioCode Records, in partnership with Dj Lukas (BR), and, Pink About It! Records, label created by her and Candy Cox (BR).
