Hannah Holland is a product of all the best bits of London club culture. She condenses all the most innovative and exciting parties, scenes, movements, subcultures and music into one frenetic curly haired whirlwind of DJ. Sneaking into the Metalheadz Sessions at The Blue Note at age just 14, it was here that she caught the bug for the beat… and the bass. She’s never looked back since, going on to DJ at some of the biggest venues & festivals around the world and running the club night and label Batty Bass.
DJing at a mulletover after-hours session in Shoreditch in 2003, Hannah was spotted by high-octane east-end institution Trailer Trash’s head honcho Mikki Most. She was signed up instantly as a resident. Her star has been on the rise ever since, rocking dancefloors all over the world for hugely respected parties like Bugged Out, The Warehouse Project, Fabric, Ibiza’s Amnesia, Glastonbury, The Arches in Glasgow, Serbia’s notorious Exit Festival as well as Japan and Australia. Hannah is equally at home stealing the show in big rooms and festivals as she is capturing hearts in grimy basements and warehouse raves in the small hours; her groundbreaking DJ sets showcase a breathtaking array of musical offerings from the early bleeps of house music through to all the
best bits of classic and upfront techno, house and future bass…woven with HH magic.
Like all the best DJ talents Hannah has turned her dancefloor expertise into studio magicianry. She released her first track Banshee in 2008 to critical acclaim – picking up plays on specialists shows on Radio One & Kiss FM – and has since sprinkled remix goldust on the likes of Yo Majesty, Spektrum & Jahcoozi to name a few. A year of reflection, influences and honing her studio skills, in Berlin in 2010, it was with her incredible Paris Acid Ball release last year that Hannah fully broke through as a producer. Pricking up the ears of all and sundry, PAB crossed dancefloors and genres picking up love and plays from corners as diverse as DJ Hell, Ellen Allien, Jesse Rose, Heidi, Danny Rampling & Terry Farley along the way.
