Courtesy (Kulør – Copenhagen)
Najaaraq Vestbirk, aka Courtesy, is a DJ and label owner from Denmark. Pursuing and finding rare success solely as a DJ means she’s invested fully in her craft. Endless hours digging in the more overlooked sections of the world’s record shops while championing the newest music coming out of her Copenhagen hometown has resulted in a unique and thrilling sound. Her sets are as much for the head as they are the body – A place where fast, streamlined stompers sit alongside whip-crack electro and churning, wrongspeed EBM – held together by a common thread of smart and emotive melody. Her mixes for Dekmantel and Mixmag are essential listening, while standout performances at Nachtdigital, Dekmantel’s Boiler Room stage and the closing set of the Marcel Dettmann-curated Klubnacht at Berghain enamoured her with dancefloors worldwide. 2019 looks to continue Courtesy’s relentless pursuit of new and exciting musical adventures, and continue to thrill clubs and festivals worldwide.
