DJ T-INA Darling is DJ and artist based in Berlin. From here she conquers the hearts
of dancers and music lovers all over the world. For many, her feeling for almost all styles
of so called "black sound" from Swing, Soul Jazz, Boogie, R&B, Gospel, Bossa Nova and Blues,
over Swing Hop, House, Electroswing to Dubstep and Breakbeat has been their
introduction to this mix of classic and contemporary sound.
Next to her dance sets she has developed a conceptual style of selecting tunes on certain topics
in combination with spoken word comments over the music.

Background
T-INA Darling performed in clubs as well as at major art events. Because of T-INA 's wide range of interests in music and art her self organised events are bringing together a diverse crowd.
Like this she is fulfilling her fantasies of extending the boundaries of urban electronic
club scenes.

T-INA Darling has lived and worked as a DJ in Hamburg, New York, Istanbul, London and since 1996, Berlin.
She has spun from Russia to the U.S.A. and loves breaking cultural boundaries with her
electrifying swingin' dancefloor sets.
