'Sometimes you are visiting an event and you realize that the DJ’s extremely varied selection and mixing technique is actually very, very good. So far nothing really extraordinary – but what if we told you that this DJ was only 17 years old? You can already imagine the surprise on our face at this first encounter with AliA. In the meantime, this lady has just surpassed the age of 20, but her dedication to soulful and electronic music in all its shapes is already astonishingly thorough. Even though her career is only just taking off with small gigs here and there, most people who know her agree on one thing: there’s a very promising future for this DJ on the horizon.' - Red Bull Elektropedia
