Dina Summer  – 30 minute guest mix on Brain Food Radio – 10pm to 11:30pm (AEDT) – 21st of Nov 2023 (guest mix from 11pm)

Dina Summer is the Berlin-based collaborative band project between Kalipo and DJ couple Local Suicide, fronted by Dina P. The Greek native, who lends her vocals and thought-provoking lyricism to the act, first started performing as a teenager on local radio stations, making waves as one of the first women DJs in Thessaloniki. She later moved to Berlin, meeting her husband and DJ/Producer partner, Brax Moody, to form Local Suicide. The third member of Dina Summer is Bavarian-born Kalipo, who started his music career as the producer and a band member of the German electro-punk band Frittenbude. While the trio initially met at a rave at the Rock am Ring festival in 2013, they only began working on music together in 2019 and have since been refining their combined sound. It is a unique blend of their influences, drawing from 80s disco, 90s electro, new wave and downbeat for a fun, nostalgic and dark retro sound.

The trio’s first release is their new wave disco hymn, ‘Who Am I’. It was praised by the global blogosphere and received massive support from German radio stations, scoring a Hot Rotation on Berlin’s Radio Eins. The single was also played by DJs like The Hacker, Digitalism, Arnaud Rebotini, Curses, Âme, Joris Voorn, Sasha Carassi and Joyce Muniz, entering Beatport’s Top 10 Indie Dance charts, the Top 15 iTunes Electronic Charts and editorial playlists on Spotify and Apple Music, generating over 200k combined streams. Their follow-up debut album, ‘Rimini’, was released via Audiolith Records in July 2022 and offers a nostalgic and beautifully crafted journey through retro disco sonics, incorporating synth-pop, new wave, and disco elements for funky, upbeat, and versatile tracks that can be enjoyed beachside or on the dance floor. The LP earned raving reviews and features from Spiegel Online, Musikexpress, Kulturnews, DJ Mag ES, Groove, Sonic Seducer, Tsugi, Penthouse, Musikwoche, TIP, and FAZE, who declared the group as one of the most promising up-rising German electronic acts to watch in 2022 while amassing over 2k radio plays and more than 2 million streams around the globe.
Their live sets have been equally successful, playing eight German festivals throughout Germany during the summer of 2023 before playing their first German headline club tour in autumn 2023.
Currently the trio is working on their new album which is scheduled for August 2024.
