Xwnia has openly answered to the subtle pulls of sound in her life from early inspirations cultivated at La Santanera and BPM, to desert explorations at Burning Man and nights spent immersed in the underground electronic music world of New York, Chicago, London and Paris. Born and raised in Mexico, she has developed an exquisite taste in music influenced by different cultures resulting in sensual sounds with smooth disco beats often drawing upon the saxophone and synths to produce beautifully crafted sets with a feminine flair.
Complementary to music, Xwnia developed a passion for Fashion and studied Fashion Design at Cedim in Monterrey, Mexico in 2007, Fashion Stylist at Conde Nast in London in 2015 and in NYC at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she found herself working as a stylist for runways and then being invited to DJ for events afterwards such as DNA Magazine launches in Mexico and New York Fashion Week. Finding a fusion between fashion and music, Xwnia spins records crossing genres in her essence, mixing her own style in between Disco,Nu Disco, Chicago House, Deep House and Acid House, & Microhouse .She has found a way to bridge all of her passions while her sets generate a smile and playful energy that she shares with everyone on the dance floor.
Since then she has been djing, first starting at underground parties in different cities. Xwnia holds her residency at Casa Morelos, Monterrey, for the “Les Gals” nights, a platform launched for female djs. Her love for travelling, music and fashion has taken her to play around the world, NYC and London are her favorites places to play, however, she is currently based in Tulum where you can often catch her djing at beautiful venues like Gitano Tulum, Papaya Playa or Habitas Tulum, Casa Pueblo, Diablito Cha Cha Cha among many others. When she isn't seaside, Xwnia is most probably sifting through a record store somewhere in the world to add to her growing collection.
