Perel’s path led her from the idyllic native Saxony straight into the center of Berlin’s vibrant club scene, from where she has steadily made a name for herself as an eclectic DJ and cunning producer alike. Annegret Fiedler rst ventured into the realms of songwriting at the early age of eight, composing her first songs on her grandmother’s piano. Soon after, she developed her craft as a formally trained singer and co-producer in several bands with which she covered a broad palette of styles ranging from Indie Rock to Synth Pop.
Having relocated to Berlin, Perel immersed herself in the local club scene and became a staple in the city’s club scene. These days, she can be found both playing DJ sets at internationally acclaimed clubs like :// about:blank while also forging connections with Oslo’s Jæger or Bossa Nova Civic Club in New York and delivering a slew of internationally acclaimed mixes that have also caught the attention of Tim Sweeney who invited her in his studio to round o 2016 in his Beats In Space radio show.
Perhaps it’s her background in social studies or maybe it’s because the former girl scout knows how to navigate through the wilderness, but her knack for analyzing a crowd matches her improvisational skills. Perel’s extensive sets are informed by a lush and harmonically rich sound that can be heard in her own productions as well, seamlessly blending Disco and House with belting Techno. She aims to take her crowd on an extensive trip with unforeseen twists and open endings.
Fiedler prefers to shake things up and to tweak established formulas instead of reproducing the standards. After all, she wouldn’t work as hard as she does only to settle for mediocrity. Just like her releases on O*RS, Mile End and Italy’s finest Rebirth or with her upcoming 12“ in July 2017, preceding Perel’s first full-length album for none other than DFA records - the experienced songwriter’s sound showcases a profound knowledge of dance music’s inner workings and a willingness to dive deeply into the fringes of Pop music old and new.
This former small-town girl from East Germany is more than capable of working the big rooms of clubs all over the world, be it as a DJ herself or as the producer of well-informed tunes that almost effortlessly challenge the status quo.
