Swedish techno heroine Ida Engberg began her career at 18 when she filled in for another DJ before winning her own regular club night. Later, she got her big break working at The Spy Bar, one of the most famous clubs in Stockholm. Since then, she’s collaborated with some of dance music’s most recognizable names including Roger Sanchez, John Dahlbäck, Sebastian Ingrosso, Eric Prydz, and more. Now, she can add one more marquee name to that list—Richie Hawtin. On Thursday, July 3rd, Engberg joined the modern techno icon for the opening weekend of his ongoing, 14-week ENTER.Ibiza residency at Space playing alongside like-minded techno luminaries Maceo Plex, Tale Of Us, and resident Bella Sarris, as well as main-room headliners Hawtin, Paco Osuna, and Recondite.
