La Fleur is not easily put in a box. She‘s the dancer turned DJ, the pharmacist turned remixer, the music-lover turned music-maker. La Fleur is house and techno, classic and future-forward, technique and instinct. Blessed with a unique presence and an innovative selector’s ear, she can seduce any crowd into a state of musical bliss.
On the eve of her solo debut EP and the launch of her label Power Plant, La Fleur is set to add to an already long list of accomplishments. An artist to watch in 2010, La Fleur is bound for the international stage with her uniquely infectious and organic sound.
Sanna La Fleur Engdahl’s life-long love of music and movement started at an early age, with eight years of training as a dancer in her native Örebro, Sweden. Electronic music captured her imagination, but she set out on a different vocational path, graduating with a Masters degree in Pharmacy in 2004. However the call of music proved much too strong, and La Fleur began DJing in Stockholm soon after she graduated, quickly rising through the ranks and landing residencies with key players on the scene like the legendary Grodan Cocktail club, as well as running her own club nights Sunday Secrets and Suburbian Wasteland.
In November 2006, La Fleur joined forces with Adeline Supreme and formed the DJ duo Housewives. Blending tongue-in-cheek humour and creativity with explosive performances, Housewives received wide recognition in Sweden for their dynamic sets and club nights of the same name. As some of the earliest artists to lay their hands on the pocketsize DJ system Pacemaker in early 2007, Housewives have been ambassadors for the device ever since.
By 2007, La Fleur was ranked at number 6 in Sweden's Top 100 DJ’s list, and Housewives were awarded "Best Club" in the People’s Choice Awards. The following year La Fleur was nominated as "Best DJ”, and Housewives were named “Best Club” at the Scandinavian Music Convention.
Since 2008 La Fleur has hosted the electronic dance music show 'P3 Dans', on Swedish National Radio. It is the most high profile program of its type in Scandinavia and has featured interviews with artists like Ellen Allien, Steve Bug, Anja Schneider, Style of Eye and Nôze.
2008 also saw La Fleur’s first forays into the studio, with her remix of David Ekenbäck’s "Nairu" on Trunkfunk Records, followed in 2009 by a major remix by Housewives for Sweden’s biggest rock band Kent, released on Sony Music. December 2009 marked the production debut of Housewives with the Dirty Dancing 12" on Kinetika Records which featured a remix from Jake The Rapper.
Success in Sweden, and a steady stream of bookings in Europe and further abroad allowed La Fleur to focus fulltime on her DJ profession, but by 2007 her focus has shifted towards her own solo productions, leading her to relocate from Stockholm to Berlin at the end of that year.
May 2010 will mark a new chapter for La Fleur. With the highly anticipated release of Flowerhead EP, and a release on Melomane with a remix from Alexi Delano, La Fleur is an artist to watch in 2010.
