Miss Luna was born in Düsseldorf, Germany, and grew up with all this funky sound of the Seventies. Since childhood she dreamed of producing her own songs.
In the late eighties, she started playing music, first for her fellow students in smoke-filled cellars with a mix of Funk, Rock and World Music, then soon after she became a residency DJ in two of the largest club in the area.
In 1999 Miss Luna fell in love with Ibiza, and two years later she stayed there to live and work in the centre of electronic music. Now she produces house and lounge music in her own studio together with an international team of producers and musicians.
Since 2002 she works together with producer Chris Le Blanc. Many of their productions were published on compilations such as Ministry of Sound, KM5, Erotic Lounge etc.
As a DJ Miss Luna presents deep house sounds and loves to create a special ambiance for the particular place and for the people listening to her music. This may be lounge music for sunset or a really groovy dance set for later on.
Residencies in Ibiza: Nassau Beach Club, Bombay Lounge.
