Born and raised in Chicago, Bumblebee developed a love for music in her early childhood, triggering a lifetime passion for music. Following her passion, she started DJing in 1999. It was when she was working in a clothing store in Denver Colorado she noticed turntables and a massive collection of Jungle vinyl. This unexpected opportunity gave her a chance to get a feel for DJing.
Her style ranges from liquid funk to deep rollers and her sound is influenced by artists like Alix Perez, Fresh, Skeptical, and Calibre. Bumblebee has played at parties around America and is well know in the Chicago Underground dance music scene.
In 2011 Bumblebee moved her home base to Berlin and has since played thru-out Germany as well as Lisbon, Milan, Pula.
She has hosted for Lazer FM (Take Over Thursdays) and Hush FM (Rum and Bass Fridays) as well as guest mixes on Bass movement, Echo Chamber, NAP and Denon Live Stream.
Because of Corona, Gretchen has been closed since mid-March. That is why we are now presenting music, together with our beloved artists, from the club into the living rooms of the world. If you like it, we would be happy to receive donations at the "virtual bar" to compensate for the total loss of income.
