Sentimental Rave is a rough diamond, and her music oscillates between the violence of her kick drums and her sensitivity. In her work, we find the lonely and nocturnal wanderings of the modern youth. As a DJ, producer, and self-taught photographer based in Saint-Denis, France, she draws inspiration from rave, gabber, experimental music, and techno.
She is the reflection of the thousands of night owls found in the warehouses of European suburbs in the glory days of the first raves. Following her first EP, ‘I just wake up’ – an experiment in balancing nervous tangents and existential impatience – she is preparing her next project on an international label. Through an intimate universe and dance floors bombs like confessions, Sentimental Rave has made her mark across Europe.
