Amelie Lens is a DJ/Producer at the forefront of today's techno scene. The Antwerp native exploded onto the scene as result of a long-standing love affair with music, ignited by her first outing to Belgium's Dour Festival at just 15 years old. Fast forward a few years and Amelie is now heading her two labels, Lenske & Exhale Records, as well as fast-growing party series EXHALE and her own radio show. Amelie's journey began in Antwerp, running her own parties and DJing under numerous aliases. Her debut release came on Italian imprint Lyase, and soon after a trio of releases on Pan-Pot's Second State gave her recognition on a global level. Today, Amelie regularly headlines festivals including Awakenings, Sonar and Timewarp, as well as playing up to six gigs per week at revered clubs including Rex, Mondo Disko, fabric, Printworks and more. Since its inception in 2018, her Lenske label has homed releases from techno trailblazers Farrago, Airod and Ahl Iver, with her second label Exhale Records being a dedicated platform to give to aspiring producers. Her long-standing EXHALE event series has grown considerably in recent years, with sold-out shows in Antwerp, Printworks London, Awakenings' ADE edition and with a residency at Ibiza's DC-10 in 2022. Following her special 4 hour essential mix for BBC, the success of her Radio 1 residency and extension in 2020, Amelie continues to establish herself as one of techno's luminaries with the introduction of her weekly radio show 'Amelie Lens presents Exhale', streaming online and broadcasting on stations across the globe.
