Lina Johnson is a renegade spirit and ruthless DJ. She describes her sonic style as ‘trashy’ and has said before that she disregards anything that might sound happy. To that end, she brashly but painstakingly bangs together techno, EBM, acid, industrial and trance. As the founder of Intrepid Skin and a beloved resident of Berlin’s Herrensauna—with whom she played an unforgettable Dekmantel ’22 closing—SPFDJ is the rare kind of DJ who can switch from a queer basement rave to a crowd of ten-thousands without losing an inch of authenticity. And while her star status keeps rising, the kick drums get (even) more uncompromising.
