CINTHIE is a German DJ, producer, label head, and record store owner that has been performing for nearly 25 years. After being introduced to sounds such as Steve ‘Silk’ Hurly and WestBam by her family, her musical love affair began. As a teenager, the Berlin-based artist would travel across Europe nearly every weekend hitting different clubs and events, achieving an exemplary clubbing education, and propelling herself into a music career of her own.
At just 16 years old, CINTHIE held a weekend job at Berlin’s Humpty Records. This is where she learned the art of mixing, being taught and challenged by senior staff members. This experience proved to be the most important contribution to her journey and where she became comfortable with her craft.
Her connection to Humpty Records led to her first gigs at the young age of 17, playing anything from house and techno to trance. Over decades, her style has morphed into a recognizable house and techno sound that blends both classic and contemporary sounds. CINTHIE built her own studio that features some of the most noteworthy vintage drum machines and synthesizers, giving her a sound well beyond the mainstream.
CINTHIE has been releasing original music since 2016 and has consistently released multiple singles and EPs every year since. In 2020, she released her debut full-length album titled Skylines - Citylights, which is her most successful project to date. Other notable releases include her 2019 hit “Mesmerizing” and her 2021 release “Just Us.” The German artist has remixed and collaborated with many notable electronic artists, including Richard Ulh, Dusky, Tensnake, Duvall, CRi, and much more.
CINTHIE’s involvement in music goes well beyond DJ and production. She has founded multiple record labels and owns a record store called Elevate. First joining Diego Krause, stevn.aint.leavn, Ed Herbst, and Albert Vogt in the Beste Modus music collective, the crew started the label Beste Freunde. After meeting The Willer Brothers, CINTHIE worked with them to create the we_r house later. Soon after, she started her own label called 803 Crystal Grooves and its sub-label, 803 Crystal Grooves Collective Cuts. With so much record label experience under her belt, CINTHIE opened a record store called Elevate Berlin.
The veteran German DJ has performed around the world in places like Paris, London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Stockholm, Seoul, Osaka, and much more. Recently, she spent a few years as a resident at the renowned Berlin venue Watergate. Still actively performing, CINTHIE has a long list of performances on the calendar for 2022, including touring in Australia and the US as well as hitting many European festivals.
