Ladida – Insomniafm Podcast 005

As soon as the name Ladida is mentioned, everybody thinks of the first lady of Czech DJing. She is typified by her precise mixing style and dynamic electronic sound with percussive elements and organic soundscapes. At the beginning of her DJ career she concentrated above all on melodic groovy techno, whereas today she is ploughing the furrow of primarily minimal techno. However, Ladida does not work only as a DJ but as a producer, in which her success resides mainly in her wide-ranging musical spectrum and many years of experience.

When the first techno club opened in Prague in 1995 she was in the right place at the right time, and Linda stood behind the decks side by side with famous DJs such as Jeff Mills, Carl Cox, Westbam, Laurent Garnier, DJ Hell and others. As early as 1996 she made herself known also beyond the borders of the Czech Republic – at Mayday Germany. The fact that she gained a more than positive reception from the public there is also documented by the evaluation of her in Frontpage magazine in 1997 as one of the best international newcomers amongst DJs. In the same year she was voted DJ of the year in a poll in the Czech magazine Tripmag. From this year on she began to appear regularly at the celebrated Berlin Love Parade. In 1997 she embarked on her production career right away with 2 EPs and an album on her former label “Lasergirl”. Since the same year she has also been a member of the Jackfruit international artiste republic. After a brief pause, she released the “Mundo EP” with Mueller Records in 1991, again attracting the attention of the techno DJ elite.
