MEANDHER or ME & her (Techno Alias YENI) is a hugely driven person. Once she fell
in love with techno she decided she wanted to make her own, so she spent time in dark
clubs watching and learning from the DJs. Even though she was only 15 years old, she
learned how to get sounds of analog synths and fruity loops, took what she made and
handed it out on CDs to people who went to Leipzig’s 10/40 techno club. She started to
build a profile and now, years later, the east Germany-born artist is a regular on the
global circuit who has played across Europe, South Africa, India and the united states
under her alter ego “ME & her”.
After years as electronic melodic producer ME & her, which took her to key parties
around the world, she has focussed also on releasing techno under her alias yeni. She is
a strong-willed character who does things her own way. Music brings out visceral
reactions in her, and she always tries to convey the same strong feelings with her
productions and DJ sets.
“I am not the kind of fish that swims with the shoal,” she states. “I am the one who tries
out exactly the opposite; the things that are not currently hyped.” As such, this classically
trained pianist, vocalist and former soprano choir singer has a sophisticated sound that
is keen to experiment and head in unknown new directions. It has lead to releases on
well-regarded labels like Suara, Armada Music, Hottrax, Toolroom, Redrum, Get
Physical, Defected, Stil vor Talent and has found its way into the bags of tastemakers
like Adam Beyer, Agoria and Charlotte de Witte. She is also an in-demand vocalist who
worked with other producers such as Drumcomplex or Kaiser Souzai.
Also, with her label, “Cyborgs in Love”, she has made it happen to have great artists
releasing with her such as Wigbert, Rob Hes, Andres Campo or Roland M. Dill.
