Oldschool Techno bis 1994
Wer erinnert sich noch an die legendären „Loops“, als es in Wien technomäßig so richtig los ging? Unvergleichlicher Hardcore-Bass, Acid-Sound vom Feinsten, Camo-Look, Nebel, Strobes und weirde Deko? Wir wollen die alten Zeiten wieder einmal aufleben lassen.

“I wanna dance to people’s hearts and minds, not to their bank accounts”
Wandering through all the kinds of non-mainstream music all through the 80ies she got thrown into a “Rave” party in early 1991. A few months later she found herself walking into the Tresor club in Berlin, greeted by the latest release of Underground Resistance, “The Seawolf”, and wondering if this might be the door into a parallel universe. Starting to DJ in mid 1992. Influenced by the already very individual and eclectic sound of Vienna, by people like Electric Indigo, DJ Pure or DJ Hell, along with the evolution of Techno music, she soon developed her very own requirements on music and DJing: it had to be funky, forcing people to dance, to have a good time – but at the same time music had to be challenging, demanding at all costs, but without taking away fun. It simply had to be music with a direct line into the heart and soul of the producers.
The first releases of her discography came out, working for instance with Christopher Just, with whom she also did the label “Petra Records” and released “Belgian Happiness”. Another part of her music life also started around that time: in early 1995 she got offered to host the electronic music/club/DJ radio show “La Boum de Luxe” on the just born fourth frequency of the Austrian Broadcast Corporation, FM4 (http://fm4.orf.at). 13 years later she is still on, sharing the LaBoum-Friday nights with Patrick Pulsinger (Cheap Records) and D.Kay featuring the most illustrous live guests all throughout the electronic music universe.
Show highlights like coffee parties with Sven Vaeth, laughing fits with Carl Craig or bacchanal show-takeovers by Air Liquide & Khan soon became a standard, and over the years LaBoum collected an impressive archive of interviews and mixes.
