P.toile is a Berlin based DJ and producer, very active and respected on the local scene, as well as on an international level. Much thanks to the consistent quality of her productions.
She was first introduced to electronic music in 1993 and shortly after that she opened her own record store, "Starbeat", in her hometown Kiel. Parallel to that, she started dj-ing and organizing events on a regular basis. "Groove Complex", the first one, gave her the chance to train her DJ skills, playing alongside international DJ’s in front of big crowds. This experience was important for her national as well as international recognition.
When moving to Paris in 2001 she started working for the record distributor "Discograph" as well as a promoting the club-bar "Lizard Lounge" in the heart of Paris. There she met Reynold, who already was promoting French electronic music artists through his party: "Minimal Dancin" and later through his freshly founded record label Trenton. In 2005 she moved to Berlin and her work with Trenton grew with a repertoire of international artists from Germany, France, Japan, Canada, Poland, Russia and USA.
After Paris, her heart led her to a more surprising destination: The troubled Lebanon and more precisely Beirut. There she was, and still is, regularly dj-ing and together with local DJ Jade, owner of the "The Basement" club, she created a series of Red Cross charity events called "To Beirut". Among the clubs that have hosted this special event are: Berlin’s Watergate, Paris’ Rex Club and London’s The Key. The project has also been supported by artists like: Craig Richards, Tiefschwarz, DJ Hell, Mr. C, M.A.N.D.Y., Oliver Koletzki, Ewan Pearson, Tobi Neumann and other international DJ’s.
Through the years, P.toile’s sound has developed from French house to minimal techno, while funk and soul of the seventies, her main musical roots, still can be heard in her DJ-sets. P.Toile’s releases on Trenton, Drehstrom, Gold & Liebe, Channels Recordings and Mothership are especially speaking to a more mature and music conscious audience, with productions ranging from down-tempo, to up-lifting minimal techno, via airy emotional house, always spiced up with some funk.
Her debut “Sticklip EP“ with remixes of pan/tone and Frank Martiniq immediately reached the top 50 of Groove Magazine. Currently she is working with Tigerskin on some new releases.
