When Virginia’s Fierce For The Night was released in 2016, critics started argueing about whether or not that meant a step forward for her label Ostgut Ton or if it rather came full circle after vocal-heavy house releases by the likes of Prosumer a few years earlier. What was probably even more remarkable about the record however was that Virginia Högl brought in three producers – long-time collaborator Steffi and her respective partner-in-crime Dexter as well as Panorama Bar colleague Martyn – for the writing sessions. The result was an LP as diverse as everything Högl’s been doing since cutting her teeth in the Munich underground scene in the early noughties to touring as a background singer of Nena or Clueso, providing vocals for Butch and Steve Bug and taking up a residency at Panorama Bar. For Virginia, energy and harmony are not mutually exclusive but in fact complementary, whether in the studio or in the DJ booth. It is no surprise then that her contribution to our Groove podcast takes a soulful approach to one of her greatest passions, electro music.
