The rise of The Black Madonna from hometown hero to an international DJ powerhouse has been meteoric. Much like her own beginnings, the Chicago native could not have foreshadowed the global success of her 'We Still Believe' series. Yet, ten years on, it's a sensational underground club residency across various continents, regularly selling out events and festival stages.
The Black Madonna's credentials as a sublime DJ technician is undeniable. There is a fluency to her sets spanning disco to techno to house and back - and maybe even a little drum and bass. More notable, however, is her cultural impact, and she created a movement within the industry in more ways than one. She is the first woman to be named Mixmag's DJ of the Year; a social activist who uses her influence to stand up for the rights of the marginalised and disenfranchised. Now for the first time ever, The Black Madonna brings her We Still Believe tour to Australia, just one of many global destinations she is venturing as an ambassador to raise funds for the Help Refugees organisation. A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to those seeking asylum on the grounds of persecution for being LGBTQIA in their home countries.
Joining The Black Madonna will be Tijana T, a fellow Pitch Music & Arts 2020 act. Over the last 2 decades, the Serbian selector has garnered an impressive following through a dominantly acid fusion of techno, breakbeat, house, and electro. Following bookings at Epizode, Timewarp and Berghain, alongside a highly recommended weekly Rinse FM radio show, Tijana T are currently flying high as one the planet’s most sought-after crate diggers.
