Born in Gera, Germany, Dana Ruh has always had a part to play in music.
After engaging herself in several kinds of music which included: singing in choir, playing guitar and doing background vocals in a local rock band called "Hidden Timbre" she was later to be infected by electronic music. With the electronic music fever in her blood, she went ahead in 1994 and bought her first technical equipment, a mixer and 2 turntables. Since then she has intensively worked to make 'it' happen. Despite her urge for new sounds, she attended university to study Economics, something she had committed herself to do, a "had to do" as she describes it. Mixing music at this point was merely just a hobby but Dana always had the intention and desire to perfect the art. After attaining her diploma from university she settled for a job as a stocks trader. Frustrated by figures and calculators she abandoned this white-collar role and headed on a one way ticket to Berlin with the goal to get more involved in her electronic music career and also to have a new city, new impressions, new crowd and more inspiration! Alongside with this sudden change of environment, she evolved her musical style from house to techno. After ups & downs, playing in private parties, she now enjoys entertaining people with her well organised impressive DJ sets both on a national and international level alongside running her own record label, Brouqade Records.
Whilst she was involved in production during earlier times in her career she is now currently producing with much more musical understanding and her current productions are the conclusion of her special sense of what is most important, the music. With successes on Barraca Music, Brouqade Records, Einmaleins Musik, Perspectiv already released Dana is looking forwards to further releases on Ostgut Ton and Cocoon (alongside Andre Galluzzi) and of course more activity with her own label Brouqade and her home label ...Barraca Music.
