A true powerhouse of the Croatian techno scene, Insolate has spent over 20 years making a name for herself worldwide as both a DJ and producer. Originating from Osijek, Croatia, in the far east of the country, she embarked on her DJ journey in 1997 before venturing into European and global club circuits.




With a career spanning two decades, Insolate has transitioned from underground raves in ‘90s Croatia to captivating dancefloors worldwide. Her contributions as a producer, DJ, and label head have left an indelible mark on the international scene. Renowned for her releases on esteemed imprints, her latest EP for BPitch showcases her signature groove-driven techno sound, characterized by its radiant warmth and meticulous balance.

The EP opens with ‘Pink Lemonade’, a burst of energy propelled by euphoric pads and fractal percussion. ‘Crude’ follows with its precise rhythmic march and bass-heavy groove. The title track, ‘Woke Up High (On Love)’, creates a dreamy world of analogue textures and hypnotic vocals, exuding a measured dose of elation. ‘Insanity’ plunges into a pool of cavernous distortions and dizzying hi-hats, while ‘We Were In Love’ closes the EP with bouncy trance vibes.

Insolate’s meticulous attention to detail in sound design imbues each track with emotional depth. The EP reflects her strong belief in hope, making it one of her most compelling releases to date.

Insolate’s international impact as a techno messenger was recognized with the prestigious Ambassador award, earning her the title “Croatia’s ambassador overseas” for both 2017 and 2018. In 2022, she received further acclaim with the Elector awards honoring her as the best Croatian DJ. Notably, Insolate represented her nation in Ibiza, accepting the “Dance Nation of the Year” award at the DJ Awards.

Having graced the stages of renowned clubs and festivals worldwide, including Berghain, Rex, Tresor, Under Club, Detroit Movement Festival, Exit Festival, Tomorrowland, ADE, and Dimensions Festival, Insolate has also embarked on extensive tours across Colombia, the USA, China, Argentina, and beyond.

As a producer, she boasts a repertoire of releases on esteemed labels such as Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver, Ellen Alien’s BPitch Rec, Ben Sims’s Symbolism, and DJ Deep’s Deeply Rooted. Her tracks have garnered support from techno luminaries like Laurent Garnier, DVS1, Dax J, Ben Klock, and many others.
