Steffi occupies a unique space in the realm of contemporary electronic music. Although she’s a world renowned DJ, Steffi’s musical interests reach far beyond the dancefloor, and it’s her work as a producer that has established an impressive, hard-won legacy. Soon after moving to Berlin in 2007, Steffi joined Ostgut, becoming a resident at Panorama Bar and releasing on the club’s label. To date she’s released five albums, including two solo for Ostgut Ton, a co-production with Virginia, another with Analogue Cops as Third Side and a collaboration as Doms & Deykers on Martyn’s 3024 label. Her impressive discography features club classics like “Yours feat. Virginia”, carefully chosen remixes and appearances on labels including Permanent Vacation, Underground Quality and mixes for Panorama Bar and fabric. She owns and operates four labels: Klakson (with Dexter), Dolly, Dolly Deluxe and Dolly Dubs. 

World Of The Waking State is Steffi's third solo album for Ostgut Ton and a musical departure for both her and the label. It’s also a serious statement of intent. Over ten tracks she embarks on entirely new electronic terrain for her productions, marking industrial spaces with superlunary warmth while exercising a refined knowledge of polyphony and arrangement. Subdued melodies interact with each other over implied harmonies and microcosmic drum patterns, luring us into a world that is introverted, bewildering and gratifying all at once.  – Ostgut Ton

“Produced during a short break from DJing, it captures the Panorama Bar resident at her most introspective, free of the big melodies and vocals of her most popular tracks. The album's restraint and emotional ambiguity recall the best aspects of '90s IDM, a sound she aimed to capture on her recent fabric 94 mix. It's the work of a producer twisting timeless influences into something modern.” – Resident Advisor
