Coming from an Armenian background, Arianna Danae will lure you in with her cinematic mixing style, blending natural rhythm with obscure eclectic selections and immersive ethnic melodies. Drawing inspiration from her culturally diverse upbringings, she seamlessly weaves genre-defying sounds and traces her own unique vibe through underground circles around the globe pushing a forward thinking sound that's entirely her own.
Arianna first entered the world of art by way of acting, capturing the true essence of each character whom she had the opportunity to explore - constantly expanding her skills through theater study, commercial work with leading national and international brands, and winning film opportunities. After years of developing her craft as a storyteller, her deep understanding of humanity can be manipulated into a creative force that she transforms into any outlet she desires. Arianna is the resident and founder of REBELLE, an emerging inclusivity-focused, underground dance party, which began in 2019 with a monthly party series at Jupiter Disco in Brooklyn, NY. REBELLE also hosts a monthly mix series broadcasting notable guest mixes from established and underground artists on Data Transmission Radio.
Since 2020, Arianna founded and hosts Middle 8, a bi-weekly show at Newtown Radio established to bring attention to the extensively diverse nature of house and techno music and those who dare to keep pushing those sounds. The name ‘Middle 8’ is inspired by the 8 bar break in traditional song formatting as a way to reset the established rhythms, symbolic of the very break we all experienced during the recent lockdowns. Each show features an interview along with a DJ set, bridging the gap between artist and audience for both local and international talent.
Some of her most notable appearances include sets for Cityfox NYE @ Avant Gardner, The club level @ Flash w/ Marcel Dettmann The main hall @ Elsewhere w/ Booka Shade, The club level @ Flash w/ Nastia, Elements Festival @ House of Yes, The club level @ Flash w/ DJ Tennis, ’DANAE Presents’ @ Nomad Beach Club Lebanon, and her Rebelle party at Jupiter Disco.
