BIO

The Yard Woman is a Greek-born, Bristol-based DJ and producer at the forefront of UK Melodic Techno. 

She has made the electronic music sphere her own playground always  extending  to draw  inspiration from unlikely genres like Pop, Rock & World Music - resulting in surprising hybrid melodic tracks. In the modern age where disconnect  is king, she invites you to ground yourself in the sound scape created.

 As a producer,  her releases have found a home on Running Clouds, Panda Lab Recs and more. Receiving plays from the likes of Massano, David Lindmer, Nora en Pure, Hot Since 82, & Ronnie Spiteri. 

Add to that warming up for  Afterlife mainstays Mathame, Kevin de Vries , as well as playing before  Victor Ruiz, and you’ll quickly see that milestone performances are part of Elena’s DNA. 

Her achievements speak for themselves with DJ sets at Motion and HERE; festival performances at Shambala and Boomtown; press coverage in BBC News and Mixmag; plus airwave support from BBC Radio 1 for her original productions Jupiter, Arcana, Lunatic, Steps and High Priestess.

In summary - it’s worth familiarising yourself with The Yard Woman. Her trajectory is attributable to her talent, which makes her growth through the industry inevitable.

VISION

In the past, strong traditional Greek women, such as my great grandma, would sit & work in their house yards from the day through to the night. 

Driven by their intuition & curiosity they were so capable of all weird & wonderful things. You could find them repairing things, gardening & cooking. 

And at night when things were cooler and the moon was out, they'd set their intentions & ground their energy. They'd dream about what the next generation of women would be able to experience & accomplish in a world with more opportunities. 

As the modern Yard Woman the electronic music sphere is my own playground. I'm curious to extend  & draw  inspiration from unlikely genres like Pop, Rock & World Music - resulting in  surprising hybrid melodic tracks. In the modern age where disconnect  is king, I'm inviting you to ground yourself in the sound scape I've created. 

Moving countries, leaving family, friends & familiar places behind music has been the only constant in my life, I hope my music can be that for you too! 

Using Divine feminine energy I want to bring different flavours on the dance floor, the dance floor is a sacred space where we exchange energy  focused on softness, lightness, vulnerability, feeling, receptivity, and interconnectedness. 

In the modern concrete world it's become harder to observe beauty naturally. I still believe it exists, we just have to adjust our angle slightly. I will share with you pieces of Digital Beauty created artificially by combining music with visuals, photos or poems. 

I want to move forward in a way that looks at The Future without forgetting the value of The Past.
