California native, DJ and producer, ONYVAA is one of Europe’s newest imports known for her driving melodic techno with Detroit influences and raw analog touches. Based in Paris, France, she is the founder/owner of vinyl and digital underground label, Passeport Records, which is distributed and pressed by Word and Sound in Hamburg, Germany. With a deep love for obscure field recording, she captures organic sounds from around the globe, encapsulating its ambiance into her original tracks.
Laurent Garnier described her Passeport 007 release as “excellent dancefloor monsters....”, also supported by Marcel Dettmann, Maya Jane Coles, Chris Liebing, Joris Voorn, Paco Osuna and many more. Passeport gives her creative autonomy to release her original productions.
ONYVAA’s brand of no frills and movement provoking techno landed her on renowned stages like Rex Club, Marvellous Island Festiva, Café d’Anvers, D! Club Lausanne, Future Frequency Festival, Cercle at Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace and l’Institut du Monde Arabe alongside DJs like Pan-Pot, Stephan Bodzin, Ellen Allien, Luke Slater, Amelie Lens, Charlotte de Witte, ANNA and Fjaak. A growing sensation, ONYVAA plans to host her own “Passeport Night's” around the world in 2018, where she intends to captivate listeners with her energetic and emotive sets, from Africa, Asia and Australia to Europe, North America and South America.
