Berlin-based artist, GiGi FM aka Giulia Fournier-Mercadante is a French-Italian force well and truly to be reckoned with. Born and raised in Paris, Giulia relocated to New York in her teens after winning a ballet scholarship. After studying and practicing dance at a prominent level, she moved onward to London, where she continued to make waves with her unique approach to Music, Sound, Dance and Art.
Before long, she became a firm fixture of South-London’s close-nit music scene, organising parties in DIY spaces and DJing regularly across the city, with regular appearances at London’s revered ‘Make Me’ parties. Listing Donato Dozzy, Bjork, Function, Neel, Aleksi Perrälä, Pierre Henry, E. Satie and Suzanne Ciani among her musical influences, Giulia is as creative in the studio as she is on the decks. Now Berlin-based, she is advancing not only as a DJ but also in her multidisciplinary, performance art practice.
After two sensational Boiler Room sets and embarking on a Boiler Room club-tour covering some key UK and European cities, she is continuing to gain a devoted listenership via her monthly NTS Radio show, and looking forward to plenty of great shows coming up at Panorama Bar, Elysia Basel, Selectors, Berghain and many more. With her multidisciplinary practice growing, we can also expect to see her breach the boundaries of the club and grow her presence within artistic spaces.
