After her eclectic and widely successful first EP 'Pachamama' which she dropped a while ago seemingly out of nowhere on the lovely label 'Studio Barnhus', Esther Silex is finally back this winter with her 2nd release called 'Ayni'. During the process of creating these 2 beautifully powerful tracks she was inspired by the andean term of 'Ayni' which symbolises a form of sacred reciprocity. Ayni is the exchange of energy between humans, nature and the universe. The term represents the idea of giving and receiving and therefore growing together. It is a mirror of her reality. Esther's 2 tracks are supported by special remixes from David Hasert and Francesco Mami. The EP will be released next Friday, 15th of November on LIKE Records from Cologne, and is accompanied by a video which she shot in cooperation with her crew in Berlin. The cover is an artwork by the fantastic twins Gert & Uwe Tobias. Together we grow!

She has an exciting tour ahead. Please contact us if you would like to book her.


Our lovely Esther Silex is since a few days officially KaterBlau-Resident. We are proud and happy she is now official part of this crazy family. To celebrate this Esther prepared this hot summer nights disco podcast!

Esther Silex has an unquestionable status as an impassioned powerhouse with enough West German swagger to create timeless music with equal parts simplicity and beauty.

“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost” the larger than life modern dance choreographer and ballet director Pina Bausch once said. The Berlin based DJ and producer Esther Silex deeply believes in those words of wisdom and took the statement as one of many inspirations behind her debut EP “Pachamama” for Sweden’s finest free spirited electronic music label Studio Barnhus.

The EP title refers to the old mother earth goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes, who is an independent deity that has her own creative power to sustain life on planet earth. For Silex she is a divineness that follows her on each and every step as a female with groove in her heart.

After a nomadic upbringing all around Europe she started to play records at the tender age of 17 and quickly became an integral part of Cologne’s house and techno scene. Her sets are anything but predictable, with an eclectic selection that somehow weaves seamlessly through techno and house to soul, funk, afro and disco. They are always a reflection of her musical diversity and don’t adhere to any formula, whilst remaining entirely and explosively dance floor friendly. Since Summer 2019 Esther is officially KaterBlau-Resident and part of this legendary Berlin family.

Her new EP ‘AYNI’, will be released within the next 2 months on ‘LIKE records’. David Hasert and Esther founded the label some years ago, now it’s David’s baby and she is happy to return for some fun.

The Quechua term ‘Ayni’ which is rooted deeply in andean culture, can be translated as ‘Today for You, Tomorrow for Me’ - an Energy Esther strongly believes in. A form of interdependence based upon sharing and helping each other out so we all grow together.
