    Katarina Dariy joins us at Bonzai Progressive with her debut track titled Find Yourself. Katarina is an emerging deep house and melodic techno DJ, producer from Kiev, currently based in Antwerp. Being raised in a family of musicians, there was almost no chance for her not to follow her musical feeling. Guitar, piano, drums, and singing have all accompanied her throughout her nomadic life.

But her aspirations became more tangible after moving to Antwerp. Her apartment was located close to the legendary club Cafe de Anvers, which gave her access to weekly inspiration from top artists. She started pursuing her DJ career in Antwerp clubs like Vaag and Flat-A, which resulted in her being invited to showcase her talents in Amsterdam, Ibiza, and Mykonos. Her decision to follow Electronic music production and audio engineering course at SAE institute Brussels led her to ghost producing.
