"I remember when I heard a Dance track for the first time when I was 12 years old - I knew my life would never be the same again... it was like a light switched on. I want to bring that same epiphany to others. I feel like I am always learning something new and exploring even further." - Janine Santana

Janine started her musical career back in 2007, learning the art of mixing through lessons from friends. Knowing she wanted to fine tune her skills and explore music further, she enrolled in the Technics DJ School in 2009, after which she was fortunate enough to continue her mentorship under some of the biggest names in the South African Dance scene.

Throughout the years she has worked to perfect and master her craft and has featured at a number of events and clubs playing alongside legendary SA DJ's, eventually appearing numerous times at the super-club TRUTH.

In 2015 she left her home in Johannesburg, South Africa and moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Having just settled in a new country, it was in Dubai that she discovered her love for PsyTrance, and she quickly became a Resident at the UAE's only 48 Hour Music Festival - SoundOpia, being added to the line-up for each and every event.

In addition to this, she was approached by Trance Family UAE, and has been a part of their stable of DJ's since 2016, representing the brand world-wide with her mixes and added to lineups featuring some of the hottest trance acts globally.

Janine has also been featured on a number of Radio Stations across the world including Truth In Dance, Diesel FM, Data Bass, Afterhours FM, Jou Radio and Sunset Dance.
