Renata (Frequent Defect, Beirut) – DJ
Renata’s sound was shaped throughout her years of beat-based explorations, using the decks and drum machines in her deconstruct/reconstruct approach.
Her art draws vision and inspiration from the murkier edges of beat processions and takes shape as a manifestation of dissent through her ever-evolving modus operandi.
During her stint in London, she branched out through residencies within the local scene alongside launching her own series under “The Calling” banner. She then returned to Beirut in 2016 and joined the Frequent Defect team with whom she shares a similar drive to address collective issues through multidisciplinary art forms.
Renata is consistently endeavoring as an artist and curator while feeding into the collective force seeking to confront conditioning and the underlying taboo subjects through unapologetic radical art.
