JoannaAstrom-2

Lived in six countries and traveled across fifty-something nations, it goes without saying that Joanna has always been curious about different cultures and their wonders. She grew up in Sweden, in a town connecting Denmark with just a bridge.

Settled in the vibrant London in 2015, Joanna’s passion for electronic music and dance culture was expressed by commencing a career as a DJ. This was further developed through academic studies in Music and Sound Design. In 2019 she released her debut EP Plastic Politician and is currently working on a new boundary-breaking album.

It came naturally for Joanna to channel her curiosity and experience with various cultures through her passion for electronic music. Influences from acid house, techno and disco mixed with rhythms inspired by travels in Africa, South America, Middle East and beyond, have become Joanna’s signature sound.

A common thread in everything she does is the aim of creating cultural bridges through electronic music, whether it is on gigs, releases, collaborations or radio shows. As a result, Joanna was awarded 2019’s Culture Grant in her Swedish hometown.

Hailing from Sweden but now based in East London, Joanna Åström sophisticatedly occupies several artistic disciplines as a producer, DJ and sound engineer.

Jo's music is an eclectic merge of jazz, disco, house, acid and techno inspired by her multi-faceted creative lifestyle dj-ing most evenings whilst by day, inhabiting The Rattle studio space as a studio engineer.  Having grown up in Sweden, playing saxophone in the school orchestra to now living in East London, regularly DJ-ing for the likes of E1, The Cause, Ministry of Sound, Queen of Hoxton, White Post, Red Gallery, Jo has always been inspired by the musical opportunity within electronic music.

Her debut EP "Plastic Politician" is now available, including her first release - "Human Spirit".
