Introducing: DJ Lea Dobricic

Over the years, DJ Lea Dobricic has been using her distinct, timeless sense of music, and eye for the crowd to move hundreds of partygoers across countless dance floors. Born in Belgrade-Serbia, she was influenced by the local  underground Electronic -music scene. At age of 10, she began to actively pursue her love of music by taking up vocal training and joining the local choir. She always knew that she is destined to share her love and talent with music lovers around the world.

In 2005 DJ Lea decided to move to Florence, Italy to join the academy of Fine Arts. Her journey into the electronic music scene started at small clubs around Florence. It was not too long after, that she became one of the hidden treasures of the old city. Working as a full time DJ and producer, she has been rocking the house with heart and mind at many of the local clubs such as Tenax, KamKama, Frau Marlene, as well as many other clubs in Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, Serbia, which have all been pleased by her live-performance.  She spins a contagious mix of deep house, tech house, minimal and techno. Always with precise technique and extreme elegance, bringing freshness and energy.

Charismatic, easy-going, talented and beautiful …she had a meteoric appearance in electronic music scene, rapidly gaining a prestigious position in an environment entwined with men. 2006 she was invited to become the resident DJ at “Moyo”, one of the major, well known establishments in the city.

Starting with a very modest setup, she was able to progressively improve on her skills in a relatively short amount of time. With countless hours of practice and many sleepless nights, she was able to drive her performance to whole new level. Her basic interface is two turntables and a mixer.Though today she plays using Traktor Scratch, she kept the “Jokey” in DJ: she never stopped beat matching. But she did add a MIDI controller for loops and effects.Driven by her inspiration, she wanted to do more than just play great music; she wanted to make it too.

Soon her talent was noticed by Ahmet Sendil’s label “Bosphorus Underground recordings” and she started to regularly publish for them and many other labels like ItaloBusiness, Butane,Killing Machine,No-Logic etc. Today, she spends most of her time multitasking between Ableton Live, Logic Pro and various synths, wave editors and sample libraries. In addition, she is now eagerly learning math and physics (Things that she always disliked in school) in order to help her synthesize the right sound that will make that perfect fit.

In May 2010, she was awarded the winning prize of the “Stefano Noferini Remix” Contest.Her submission was one among hundreds reviewed, a clear statement about her talent driven by her passion for the music. Remix is released on “Deeperfect” records.
