Cédric Marinello aka Strong Legs (PTTP & Kapitel Bollwerk) about JENNY CARA as a DJ:
I’ll never forget the first phone call I had with JENNY CARA. It was during the period where I first booked her for one of our resident nights at ISC Club in Bern. As it was my first contact with her I didn’t know what to expect. It was a rare moment of realization that there do exist people that share the love and passion for all the different aspects of the whole nightlife business. I felt heard and respected.
After many nights with Jenny Cara, behind the decks and also as a dancer when she’s playing, I still fall in love with her style of mixing genres and creating an energy in the venue. The people do not only listen to her sets, they’ll remember her sets. In nightlife the clock runs twice as fast and sometimes you’ll feel lonely. When dancing to her music all the negative feelings fly far away and you’ll find yourself smiling and being absorbed by the positive vibes. Jenny Cara is truly one of a kind. As a DJ but also as a human.
Nora Seebach, co-founder of F96 Collective and a friend, about JENNY CARA:
As an experienced promoter and DJ, Jenny Cara moves effortlessly between different spaces and networks of Zurich’s club and nightlife culture. She has no fear of putting her finger where it hurts, which sometimes feels like she is digging her own grave, as she puts it. She cannot pinpoint how her awareness of the inequality in nightlife started, it crept up on her and now she is at the forefront of promoting progressive culture and minds thinking more inclusive futures.
For 14 years she has been engaged as a promoter. Working at Club Zukunft in Zurich she was responsible for bookings and club management, while working tirelessly to bring diversity to one of the most important institutions in Zurich’s nightlife. She is also known for organizing and curating parties in off-space locations all over the city. Through that, she has become a main player in the work of translating between the subculture and big institutions.
With her bookings, she shows a great sense for curating nights that combine established DJs with promising talents. She advocates for bookers to put in the extra research and take the risk – even if it backfires in 1 out of 10 cases.
