American born Lily Ackerman is a producer and DJ based in Berlin.
Raised in a quiet farming town in Illinois, Lily’s first outings with electronic music began after relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area, co-founding the Diacritic Collective – a group of music devotees passionate about vinyl culture – and later landing a residency at the long-running As You Like It parties. In 2019, she moved to Berlin where she has unleashed her dexterous selection of techno, electro and leftfield electronics at institutions like Tresor, Berghain, Renate, Watergate and Else.
Her production career spans over a decade, with her first wave of material surfacing on Mioli Music in 2013 (‘Africa’), to releases on Perfect Location Records, Vinyl Dreams Records and As You Like It Recordings and contributions to compilations by HÖR Berlin, Bewegungsfreiheit and Perimeter Junk, tracking a gradual and effortless stylistic shift towards the more angular and experimental side of the electronic cosmos.
Channeling her US roots and fusing years of experience with newfound inspirations in Berlin, Lily Ackerman looks toward the future with hope, passion and an innate sense for the eternal groove of the dance-floor.
Lily’s remix of Christina Chatfield’s “Energies” shined brightly on the AYLI Recordings’ debut release Ascent/Descent EP.
