Just Emma
In the depth of music you close your eyes. You close your eyes to open your heart. You open your heart to give in to the strength of floating spaces of music. Welcome to the sound of Just Emma. They duo manages to make you drift from reality to a fictional journey into a different world. For more than four years Alex and Saskia have been part of the electronic music scene, spreading their driving, deep, hence melodic and playful sound focusing on one message their music reveals to every single person: love! While Saskia‘s musical skills developed during early childhood piano lessons, Alex made first contact with electronic music with his “Minimal Lounge“ solo project. Releasing on labels such as Katermukke, Hanse Hertz, Plötzlich Music and Connaisseur Recordings it is their own imprint Underyourskin Records that has been causing a buzz lately and on which Just Emma releases their dark and melodic interpretation of electronic music. Therefore the duo prefers to play the early morning hours to attract the crowd with an ocean of diverse sounds.

Ramona Wouters

Half Belgian and half Dutch, Ramona spent her youth bouncing between Antwerp and Amsterdam throughout the early 90s. Growing up on Belgian techno and the Dutch love of house music instilled in her an early appreciation for contrast and balance between these two genres of music.

Ramona’s sound weaves together a tapestry of melodies, textures and beats, always conscious of the energy of her audience. This sensitivity stems from her love of dancing, and results in an emotive, sensual style that exudes a rich array of feeling. It is her way of getting back to and giving back to that vital place we all go when the music feels right.
The last few years she has played alongside some great acts including: Viken Armen, Oceanvs Orientalis, Thugfucker, Oona Dahl, M. Rux, Powel, Jacob Groening, Hoj, Satori, Martha Van Straaten and also played on several theater tours with Boombox.
