Born in Zaporozhye, Ukraine, Dana Montana is an up-and-coming techno DJ and producer. Inspired by the sounds and insane party energy of the 90s, her live sets showcase the sassy energies of everything from banging Techno and Electro to Ghettotech and Hardcore. While still a fresh face in the scene, this rising DJ truly is causing a stir with her energetic, hard raving style.
Coming up and out in Belgium, Dana fell in love with the club scene when she started going to Ampere, a nightclub in the bustling city of Antwerp. She regularly attended their infamous Drag Me to Hell nights and found a home in the underground LGBT community. During the global COVID-19 lockdowns, she used the time to dive deeper into her love for EDM and DJing. She honed her skills and vowed to herself to come out of the COVID era stronger, better and faster.
In the summer of 2021, she started performing regularly around Europe, eventually growing to support techno heavy-hitters like Amelie Lens and Enrico Sangiuliano. She would also become a proud resident of the club nights that originally stole her heart, Mati Drome’s Drag Me To Hell at Ampere. Her sinister techno trance style was right at home at the industrial club nights. Also in 2021, she joined Drome–who’s now referred to occasionally as her “partner in crime–for a special performance in the Boiler Room. On the production front, her track Sea of Sequin was featured on RAW’s Third Eye compilation, and was notably the lead hit off of the album.
2022 saw her share a smashing mix to the popular Awakening podcast, and performances at Boudica, Pulse Festival and Deestricted helped her to spread her steamy title as "the soundtrack of dancefloor makeouts”.
