Ninda Felina has been DJ for almost 10 years. Ninda is also a person who loves the environment and has been taking trips into the jungle several times. There she created music by recording the sounds of animals and the forest itself. Her latest project is Save our Sounds which was created in the forests of West Papua. The project promotes forest protection through music and visuals. The sounds of nature that she collected were mixed into a dance track titled Birds of Paradise.
Zushi started producing electronic music at the age of 15, quickly ﬁnding his way within the music industry. He graduated from the Herman Brood Academy (music production school known for graduates like Martin Garrix) and (co)produced several tracks which got released on labels like Wall Recordings, Armada, Sony, Zero Cool(Moti) and more.
