After more than a decade spent building an enviable reputation for herself in the clubs of Paris, Jennifer Cardini has become an international concern. Her infectious charisma and versatility behind the decks has led to invitations to play at such famed nightspots as Panorama Bar, Nitsa, and Fabric, and with her creative platforms and labels Correspondant and Dischi Autunno her standing as a tastemaker is as prominent as ever.
With teenage years spent savouring the lo-fi box jams of late ‘70s new wave, it was actually the immersive grooves and smooth, stripped-back drum patterns of another emerging genre–minimal– with which she first made a name for herself, perfecting a downtempo, cinematic mixing style that has become Cardini’s calling card.
If her exquisite sets as a resident for Rex Club showed her honing in on a notably sophisticated approach, it was her weekday slot at avant-garde spot Le Pulp that brought her ability to ignite any party to the fore, presenting experimental techno, narcotic acid cuts, and saturated nu-disco with an energy that has made her an icon in electronic music culture.
A move from Paris to Berlin would only enhance her international standing. Her now-seminal mix CD ‘Feeling Strange’ releases on Kompakt still stands, alongside many others from her catalogue, as a testament to her ability to source on-the-pulse sounds.
Jennifer Cardini is also a producer and remixer and work as music supervisor for brands, scoring fashion week shows for Ami or Kenzo in Paris regularly.
