Xenia Beliayeva

"A taste of chocolate from all sides on my lips "
("Chocolate", Various Punks Volume A)

So that we do not misunderstand each other: Xenia Beliayeva is not an easy to enjoy sweet snack, neither as a producer nor as a DJ. Her arrangement of electronic music brings forth the demanding creatures of the night, which approve the sound as a central stylistic medium, but last but not least she adds a further sensual element with the addition of her voice. Not only "Ultra Glamour", but also "Hellraiser", to speak in her song titles. But first lets start from the beginning.

The mid twenties DJ originally comes from Moscow, and since the mid nineties her life has been linked with her deepest passion: music.
Whether in the scope of a traineeship for VIVA TV or a part time job in a CD rental agency in Cologne, as a freelance promoter for renowned labels such as Playhouse, Klang Elektronik and Mute, in the scope of her label management for Lone Records or as product manager of Ladomat for many years, her destiny is bringing her into connection with the music business again and again.

It was only logical therefore that in the course of the years Beliayeva also found her personal musical language. Since the mid nineties initially in the artistic area for private views or similar on the move as a DJ, she opened for Kraftwerk with Laurent Garnier in 1997 and for the centre for art and media technology (ZKM) in Karlsruhe. She then built up a continual presence as a club DJ from 2000 above all in her new home town of Hamburg. In particular her resident event "Kill them all" in the Hamburg Gum Club or her performances in Waagenbau (a nightclub in Hamburg) gained Xenia a reputation as one of the hottest DJ insider tips of the hanseatic city. In the meantime Xenia has a growing international action radius, and so you can hear her more often in club venues between France, Spain, Holland, Ukraine and Brazil or on her internet radio show xenbel on samurai.fm.

Xenia Beliayevas particular recipe for success is her singular mix of concert events and deejaying, which gives her DJ sets a unique result. "I have always sung, and for about four years I have been building my vocals into my deejaying as a central element. Of course I see myself first and foremost as a DJ for electronic music, or Techno to be more precise, but I dont want to limit myself to this role. Im not scared of innovation, experiments and the conscious break from keeping expectations. In this way its possible that in the middle of a techno set I will build in a Ministry record."

Also Beliayevas musical aesthetic as a producer draws up the effect of her incomparable voice. Apart from productions with Andre Winter and the French electro producer Arnaud Caschera (as a joint project of Da Fresh & Xenia Beliayeva for the Plantage 13 label Dance Electric) she became particularly famous with her singles for Anthony Rothers show label Datapunk. Tracks such as "Ultra Glamour", "Chocolate", "Nanotubes", "Hellraiser" and "Wedding & Funeral" as well as her new interpretation of the Rother classic "Dont Worry" make Beliayeva one of the most important ambassadors of the new label sound: powerful and energetic, Beliayeva flirts with industrial noise and in spite of everything remains full of emotion. No wonder that in the meantime even long standing cult figures of electronic music such as Nitzer Ebb singer Douglas McCarthy draw on Beliayevas mixing skills for the current single for the Fixmer/McCarthy project.
