BIOGRAPHYIn the male-dominated world of electronic music, one artist is determined to defy boundaries of both gender and genre and turn age-old industry stereotypes on their ear. Initially breaking onto the scene as a vocalist, ARUNA spent the better part of the past decade writing and recording with some of the biggest names in Trance and House including Laidback Luke, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz. She made the decision to start DJing in 2011 and began touring internationally, often incorporating live vocals into her sets, playing to packed clubs around the globe and at festivals such as ASOT550 in Den Bosch, Holland, EVC in Pune, India and Nocturnal Wonderland in Los Angeles.
More recently, however, ARUNA made a critical pivot in her ever-evolving career path, shifting her sights primarily towards production, stepping away from Trance and House and into the world of Drum & Bass. Her debut artist release on Monstercat in late 2016, "Ready To Go", her first to feature another vocalist, was a breakout D&B smash, reaching #1 in the Soundcloud Top 50 Most Played charts, while her unique story landed her feature interviews in such respected press outlets as UKF and DJ Mag. She has since put her touring on the backseat in order to focus on her work in the studio, refining her sound and discovering her voice as a producer, with several original singles in the works slated for release later this year.
Dubbed one of the Top 10 Powerhouse Females in EDM by Magnetic Magazine and armed with a musical training background encompassing everything from film scoring to electronic production to jazz theory, ARUNA has continued to break barriers in the dance music world with each new release and remains poised to become one of the most prominent and provocative artists - female or otherwise - that the scene has to offer.
