Prague-born, London based Ariane V is a selector on the rise. Cutting her teeth with a stint behind the counter at Soho’s legendary Phonica Records, she quickly developed a taste for a broad range of dance music, building an enviable record collection in the process.
As one of the driving forces behind Common Ground (fka Rhythm Sister), a collective/community supporting female, non-binary, and trans DJs and producers, she’s established herself as a key player in London’s music scene.
Initially rooted in house & disco, Ariane V’s exquisite selections frequently drift through the dreamlike and euphoric to the broken beat and acid pumpers. She’s a regular at many of London’s best venues, either getting people dancing at the likes of Corsica Studios and Night Tales, or digging deep at audiophile spaces such as Brilliant Corners. An experienced radio host, she has appeared on multiple radio stations in the UK and abroad in addition to her regular monthly show on Peckham’s Balamii Radio.
