LYA enjoyed a classical music training since the age of 5. Not only was she a talent at the piano, she also entertained her parent’s guests by singing for them.
She grew up listening to a blend of her mom’s rock&roll vinyls and her dad’s disco recordings. This followed up by her teenage interests: Hiphop.
As she grew older, the rave scene stole her heart: Henrick Schwarz, Kerri Chandler & Derrick Carter were her guides to a lifelong passion for housemusic.
While being a part of Antwerp’s nightlife as a dancer in Belgium’s biggest night clubs, it was only a matter of time to do her own thing. Under the supervision of the talented Niels Feijen her past & experiences all came together in something she could express herself the best: being a DJ.
She would describe her style as a cocktail of jacking house, groovy disco beats, Chicago house and a sprinkle of raw techno. A real crowdpleaser due to her natural skills to curate the crowd. A perfect blend of good music & entertainment.
You can enjoy her creative findings in hers and Niels Fejien‘s booming party concepts UNDER and Tell No One where she holds residence.
LYA has brought her vibe to quality events such as Tomorrowland, Ibiza Destino 2016, several local festivals & lots of residencies at Belgian's finest Club Vaag and Café d'Anvers.
Lots to come for this talent, as she brings the vibe to another level.
