Trouble in Paradise
“Trouble in Paradise” is an all female* DJ, VJ & artist collective. It was founded by DJ double u cc around 2014.
Since the beginning the girlz stick with the slogan *we put it all in the music - cause‘ music is our weapon*. “Trouble in Paradise” wants to celebrate and fight – both at the same time. It‘s passion that requires the courage for change. All girls to the front!
In terms of music, the DJs operate between rap, trap, grime and bass music but also like to experiment with dusky drone and ambient. Or they go for techno.
Visually, TIP charm with unique stage designs and conceptualized VJ-power.
For the photo series I invited the girls to the studio and asked them to fool around with our (partly broken) stage props. Rather than representing an untouchable and glamorous collective, I wanted to show the mess and chaos we have to fight through. So to disclose the holy aura of a DJ and to communicate that any of us could do this.
It is a necessary task in an evolving society to carefully consider style and subject of representation.
