Estella Boersma Is Ready To DJ With Gusto For Her Miami Debut
Estella Boersma says Tiƫsto wasn't born on the Dutch dance floor for the first time, and she also writes popular articles about Rotterdam techno. However, the music played by the Dutch artist will be different.

Since he started DJing three years ago, the 24-year-old has been playing techno music laced with soulful and atmospheric intros mixed with samples from old NASA space missions.

Boersma's next stop takes him to another country, his hometown of tiny Haiti, where he will make his Miami debut on Friday, February 2. Expect to play a very dynamic set with endless energy; However, Boersma did not know whether it was pure "hard technique" from start to finish, or whether the night would give him a place to experiment.

"I feel it," Boersma told The New Times from his home in Berlin. Wearing a long-sleeved black shirt and a cross-shaped necklace, accessorized with fringed bangs, she casually smokes a cigarette while her cat runs behind her. "When I play, I trust instinct 99%. I choose the songs first and I like to buy records to see what I can't find online. I don't know if it's going to be a heavy techno set. A crazy, happy concert, or something slow and deep."

If genetics are any indication, Boersma's passion for raves runs through his veins. He noted that he and his parents have a strong connection to electronic music. “When I was little, we used to go to Ravos,” he recalls fondly. "Sometimes I have to go to my grandparents' house on the weekends, and I'm really sad that I can't go. I always say I can't wait until I'm 18 so I can go to a festival with them."
On an unexpected night at Amsterdam's famous Club de School, 18-year-old Boersma is caught up in the rhythm of the night and has no desire to escape his fate. "It was the craziest night in my life. I've never seen such free people. I never thought music could make you dance for hours. And to be there and enjoy the people and the sound. It was great."

Fate conspires again and he ends up with a friend who has an ancient tracking system that he uses to produce techno music. "I asked myself: 'What is this? Star Trek?' "It seems very mysterious to me."

After receiving a brief lesson from a friend on how to produce music using analog equipment, he immediately discovered the instrument. He went to Buck's Music Store in Amsterdam, bought a simple amplifier and started creating raw sounds. "I asked my friend, 'If this is how you make music, should we go to the music store?' I asked him.

But thanks to Tik Tok views, Boorsma didn't go from being a DJ in his bedroom to a world-traveling producer. His path followed a seemingly unconventional path : he studied production and devoted himself to DJing . In the year

It took four years of practice, but this five-minute song showcases his production talent, featuring pauses, drops and some messy lines.

"Mostly I started thinking about it myself, and in the end the songs came out really well and were really fun," Boersma says. "It was a big experiment, but I started it because it was fun and I really liked it."
Boersma began mixing songs in 2019 while living in Brooklyn. He returned to Berlin shortly before its closure, which gave him time to learn to DJ on vinyl. Boersma began playing sets at summer revival festivals like the Netherlands after the pandemic restrictions were eased and releasing mixes for popular techno radio stations and the YouTube channel Hoar.

Zimmer's presence at a major techno festival is something to be proud of, but his role as a DJ carries the same weight as his modeling career. She began modeling at the age of 14, appearing on the covers of magazines such as Vogue Italia and walking at Paris and New York fashion weeks and for brands such as Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.

While Boersma isn't ready to quit modeling, techno's appeal has been growing stronger of late. "It's an organic change," Boersma said. "I really enjoyed the artistic freedom and also the freedom to present myself, rather than going to a tight group, which was really bad."

So far, Boorsma's electronic music campaign has survived the criticism of models and DJs. Of course, this kind of thinking seems very narrow. Boersma wears many hats: model, producer, anime fan and illustrator.

"I can't forget how fast time flies because it's amazing," he said. “Everything started to come together, and sometimes I felt like my memories weren't real or real, even though they were. It is like another life in another time. We are in different worlds, and that is true. I think it's a beautiful feeling."
