Secret Diary | Vani Vachi & Deepneue
Queer and non-conformist by nature, Portuguese-born producer and Berlin-based DJ Deepneue goes to lengths to glorify a transgressive and sweaty vision of techno in post-Covid times. Through a new-age sense of identity and utopian rebellion, Deepneue embodies a tongue-in-cheek personification of haute couture, erotica, and art, genderlessly pushing a high-energy spirit into dance music and the road that lies ahead.
Having run the gamut of Berlin’s club scene as a DJ, Deepneue co-founded the TrashEra communications agency, collective, and platform in 2015 before solidifying his role in the city as a resident DJ of international repute for Pornceptual.
With a background in theatre, film, and dance, Deepneue’s musical leanings find a vent through fast-paced techno, bombastic mixes, and deeper sound art productions for film and performance, with the energetic side of Deepneue’s music captured at full tilt for United We Stream, Rinse FM France and live for HÖR.
Taking part in Unity Pride at Funkhaus in 2018 while enjoying a run of transgressive appearances in Tel Aviv and Bucharest to higher profile bookings in London, Finland, and Greece, Deepneue launched the DARKROOMMAFiA event series - booking the likes of Daniel Wang, BNJMN, and Scalameriya so far - with its label arm currently on track to release Deepneue’s debut record, Paradisaeidae.
With Deepneue’s DJ sets, productions, and platforms continuing to provide common ground and respite for those caught between the margins of normative society, Deepneue finds his place within electronic music as a creature of the night and a self-assured nomad from all tribes.
