In the world of electronic music there are few personalities as determined and
versatile as Helena Legend. With a slew of chart-topping tracks under her
belt, plus a dizzying array of club and festival bookings around the world and
a huge, dedicated following, she had already achieved a huge amount by the
beginning of 2016. But, not one to be stuck in an evolving scene, she took a
huge risk and decided to change her musical direction, shifting gears and
unleashing a potent new sound. After the release of her first EP ‘No
Explanations’ (Part 1 & Part 2) via Ultra Music/Sony Music in December 2016
and February 2017 respectively, which showcased this sound to an
overwhelmingly positive reception, feeling galvanised by this support and
brimming with confidence, she is poised to continue gracing the planet with her electrifying DJ sets and superlative productions armed with a renewed
zest for her craft. Full of ambition and limitless energy, Helena is poised to
take things to the next level as she explores her exciting new direction.
Helena was born in Bristol, UK and her journey to her current standing as a
DJ and production powerhouse has taken her from the West Country city to
Ibiza, where she worked in club promotion. Her first plays on the decks were
after school sessions at her high school friends house known as the UK DJ
‘Eats Everything’ from here to endless hours mixing in her bedroom, was
where she learned to DJ and soon found that her natural aptitude for playing
music put her in the limelight. A move to Australia cemented the foundations
of her blossoming DJ career and she became one of the nation’s most iconic
selectors in just a few short years. With the foundation of classical training at
the core of her innate musical abilities, her debut single ‘Girl From The Sky’ hit
the No.1 spot in the Australian club charts and remained there for four weeks.
From there on in, she skyrocketed into the stratosphere and beyond.
Global tours, and a string of chart-topping releases followed her debut single
as Helena put her all into maintaining a high level of consistency and
professionalism – keeping things positive, uplifting and soul-enriching every
step of the way. A firm believer in the transformative power of music, she has
remained staunch in her approach, making sure every crowd she plays to
gets a large dose of euphoria and energy with every set and, of course, every
piece of music she makes has the same fundamentals in its DNA.
Helena’s hard work and dedication to her craft is unwavering – which is
evident in her brave move to change her musical direction. Inspired by her
peers, Major Lazer and Chainsmokers, Helena has injected a fresh aesthetic
into her music, blending the sensibilities of credible pop music with the
potency of the sound cultivated by Diplo and co. Her successful switch has
been facilitated by her versatility; being able to seek out and play new music,
to vibe with fresh tracks, connect with new artists and even singing on her
own tunes, injecting everything she does with a fresh burst of passion.
On the road, Helena has been busy as always, from countless festivals and a
heavy presence in China, to the ‘Beauty & The Beard’ tour of the US with her
buddy Kennedy Jones plus a worldwide touring schedule. She has rocked
dance floors at festivals all over planet Earth including Tomorrowland, Big Day
Out, the Future Music National Tour, the main stages of Ultra Music Festival
and Stereosonic as well as touring Asia supporting Alesso at a series of sold
out stadium crowds. Though she’s just as comfortable playing to smaller
crowds at intimate private parties including Taylor Swift’s Superbowl party.
Demand for the star’s prowess on the decks never wanes, in fact it continues
to grow with an army of fans all over the world inspired by her work ethic,
positive attitude and unforgettable music and performances. Her ambition to
embark on her own arena tours is sure to become a reality in no time at all,
and it seems she is capable of achieving everything she sets her sights on. As
well as music, Helena’s passion for fashion will also come to fruition with the
launch of her new label later in 2017.
Helena Legend was already a force of nature and buoyed by the success of
her new direction, there is nothing she can’t achieve. Equipped with
boundless energy and love for what she does, she will continue to criss-cross
the globe leaving hundreds of thousands of fans full of joy and positive energy
along the way.
