Jessie Granqvist is a product of the vibrant underground-scene, that’s currently growing rapidly in Stockholm. Starting out in the summer of 2011, she gained her first residency at Aftermath and within short she was a well-known face all around warehouses, fields and forests. With roots grounded in illegal raves and open airs, she has gained notoriety for her style of dark and meditative sounds merged together into a very danceable mix. With both technicality and an eclectic selection of records, she has the talent to truly build and build a long lasting vibe on every floor that she appears on.
Since her start in 2011, Jessie has been seen in almost every DJ-booth in Stockholm including Berns 2:35:1 (where she’s also had a residency), Under Bron, Fotografiska and Slakthuset. Sharing stages with icons such as Marcel Dettman, Nina Kraviz, DVS1, tINI and Cari Lekebusch. She has also played sets at festivals such as Into the Valley, Yard and Camp Cosmic as well as clubs in Berlin and Ibiza.
One a regular weekend you’ll be likely to find Jessie at yet another warehouse rave or open air party, staying true to what she really is: a Stockholm Underground legend.
