From the nouveau-gypsies to the bohemian clubbers; these are the ones she asks to close their eyes, open their hearts and feel the love — the Mimi Love. In uenced by the the world and people around her, her sound is electronically nomadic, and whether aunting a hypnotic kind of pop sound or bending tempos to bring people back to earth, it always arrives with big feelings and a sincere view. This is house music for dancers who love to dance, and lovers who love to love.
It all began in her second home; the iconic setting of Berlin’s Bar25. Here she played dreamy downbeat disco with her long-formed collection of special and often rare music. Soon though, the ‘four-on-the- oor’ sound the bar was known for seduced her, and with this new romance on her shoulder and a myriad of number one fans urging her on, the name Mimi Love took off into outer-space. Today she journeys Europe, America, and The Paci c, despite her feet being solidly planted in the ripe Berlin soil. From Her residency at Katerblau, her deep association with the Bachstelzen Collective and her tear-inducing sets at the utopic Garbicz and Fusion Festivals among others, Mimi Love is never far away from playing her special kind of Love Sound to the cutest people around.
If Mimi Love was a cocktail, she’d taste of exotic fruits from tiny islands with glittered sand. If she was a galaxy above, she’d shoot stars of disco dust. Even in her past, as she laced the hedonistic Berlin electronic rebellion with her stilt walking magic and hands-on carpentry for clubs, it was always stirred with beating emotion, a dash of lime and a tropical umbrella. Today however, she radiates her shiny inner-light into music. Universal fruits sound sweet in the hands of Mimi Love, and her music creates dancers with her touch. Genres are just boxes — Mimi Love plays moods.
Rachel Torro is carving out a unique space in the San Francisco House Music scene with an aesthetic that draws from her adventurous musical background. Her musical passion has been influenced by artists like Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and LCD Soundsystem. She combines a mature breadth of taste with a youthful playfulness colored by her post-adolescent history of psychedelic rock revelry. Her song selections weave a voice that is all her own–minimal, deep and tech house sensibilities build upon and support each other in a grounded but intricately textured experience. In addition to sharing the stage with staples like Atish, Hot Since 82, Lee Burridge, Luca Bachetti and Nico stojan, Rachel is the resident DJ and musical director for Morning Glory SF, an early morning, pre-work conscious dance party.
