Radical Sounds Latin America | Diamin
Amapola Ernst a.k.a. DIAMIN is a DJ, vinyl collector and environmental scientist born in Chile and based in Berlin, Germany. She was working in a record store in Buenos Aires for many years, where she started weaving her style and mixing techniques. Diamin's sets cover a wide range of musical genres. She is a perfectionist and very much concerned which the musical environment and atmosphere. Her particular cartography of electronic music explores the roots of techno, focusing on how these sounds intersect with bleep, breakbeat, electro and acid. However, outside the nightlife context and in a more radio-friendly approach, she proposes a more experimental profile, from ambient to industrial tribal explorations.
Since 2014 she has been a co-founder of the DJ collective Family Affair in Buenos Aires, which is still active and influential in the local scene and beyond. A few years ago, she was also running a party called Transitions at the mythic club Cocoliche in Buenos Aires. She is currently a resident on MARICAS (Barcelona), Mutant Radio (Tbilisi), Lacura (La Plata) and has recently launched the record label Tecnologías Elementales.
