Iana Himnia
From: SPAIN

Iana's musical career began at the early of 6 years when she studied at the "Conservatori Superior de Música de Barcelona" making her first gigs on the music scene at the Liceu Theatre in Barcelona with a children chorus.  Between then and now Iana picked up a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Public Relations, spent a few years working for agencies in New York and Barcelona, before finding herself immersed in music once again as resident DJ and instigator of the infamous DC10 carry-on's at the Ibiza underground sensation of 2002 - Pin-Up.

Her deep, electronic, irreverent and obscure sets were the perfect antidote to a full day of DC10 and her instant popularity carried her across the island that summer with spots at Space, Pacha, Underground, Bambuddha Grove, Es Vive, La Diosa basically any place with a dancefloor and a few others besides. Returning every summer since, Iana has been a preferred guest of What's Up at Space Ibiza as well as being included on their international roster alongside Mr C, Nano Vergel and Pascal Feos and other highly regarded minimal techno artists.

Back in Barcelona Iana has been a regular of the likes of Danzatoria/Catwalk, La Terraza/ Fellini, and City Hall, and her DJ sets have been in demand from as far afield as Berlin, Prague, New York and Lisbon in clubs like Tresor, Watergate and Twilo among other big ones. She has 2 years of Miami Music Conference gigs under her belt and has appeared at a range of festivals including Electrosplash (Castellón-Spain), B-Festival (Vitoria-Spain), Explum (Murcia-Spain) as well as Le Rachdingue, Industrial Copera, Metro Dance Club closer to home. Currently her monthly residencies include Club Fellini and Lolita at The Loft.

Taking off the headphones briefly Iana was in charge of the techno and minimal section at Codigo Records Distribution before moving to her present position at Regular Label where she was in charge since last year of bookings and the label's upcoming 5th Anniversary Tour. www.regularlabel.com  

As if that wasn't all enough, the project closest to Iana's heart is the non-profit organization DJ's Contra La Fam www.djsagainsthunger.org . It started with an electronic music festival and still managed by her which is now in its 3rd year. DJCF focuses ..ing those that need it most through music and art. So far festivals have been held in a disused convent (Sept 2005) and a public market place (Oct 2006) with great success. Djs Against Hunger is right now a full no profit organization promoting also other projects like P.A.C.A.S. (free workshops on djing, music prduction and cinema, www.pacas.es) or the art organization MateriActiva www.materiactiva.net ), an artist collective promoting various projects including Green Box Sessions, a silent dance floor finalist in Green Space Heineken 2005 where she also played, and Femelek (that started March 2006 up to now) an all female electronic music festival, which culminated in a closing party at Club Fellini where she now holds her residency.

A versatile and flamboyant DJ with an astounding knowledge and depth of music, Iana Himnia knows exactly how to knock the socks off a crowd without compromising her underground electronic roots while her work outside the booth has gained her both the respect and admiration of her peers.
