A familiar face to many, Cindy has been listening to electronic music since she was 18, during the era of French electro/bloghaus. Her keen interest in discovering new music, varying across a diverse range of genres such as French Electro, served as her gateway to the subversive world of house & techno music.
When she's not waiting on the next beat at HQ, Cindy can usually be found attending live band shows, or hopping from one electronic gig to the next music festival around the world. She counts Primavera in Barcelona as one of the best festivals she has ever attended.
“It had the perfect balance of bands and djs/electronic acts, but if you’re just there for the electronic music, check out Sonar or Off Week - they're incredible," she shares, "For the entire week, the best producers and djs play there and there are 10 parties a day around Barcelona! People there are warm and friendly and super fun to party with.”
This August, she’ll be taking a trip in to Europe, hitting the beating heart of the underground sound, Berlin, before heading over to Morocco for Oasis Festival and then to Portugal for BPM Festival.
In the debut edition of The Council Consults series, Cindy shares with us her playlist for the perfect night in Europe, starting off with an ethereal, atmospheric track, and building the pace up to a steady thumping beat to take her deeper in to the night.
