This breathtaking and talented beauty discovered her love of music early on in her teens back home in Sweden where she was influenced by artists like Aly & Fila and Bjorn Akesson, among others.
About these artists, DJ Kiraz says, "They are so incredibly talented, and they create the kind of music that I want to create. But at the same time, they are incredibly kind and down to earth."
Little did she know that only a few years after she turned professional she would be spinning tracks alongside some of the very people she idolized in her youth. Some of the electro and trance icons DJ Kiraz has shared a bill with include the likes of Headhunterz, Rebecca & Fiona, Yoji, UMEK, Stephane Pompougnac and Paul van Dyk.
Being called to perform at an impressive list of events in Japan, DJ Kiraz has already become a household name in the country's EDM scene. Some of the venues and events in Japan where DJ Kiraz has performed include XEX Nihonbashi, Club Asia, Aoyama Laputa Garden, Opera and Origami, as well as several summer parties at two of the hottest beaches in Tokyo, Zushi and Enoshima.
DJ Kiraz is known for blowing the roof off every event she plays at, a reputation that led her to be tapped as one of the DJs for Vogue Fashion’s Night Out event where she bumped her insane beats at the Swarovski store in Omotesando, Japan. Taking place in 2011, the event was the country's first ever event of this kind, and included other notable artists such as The Crooks and Jennifer Hudson, as well as a list of the world's foremost fashion designers including Christopher Bailey, Roberto Cavalli, Michael Kors and Kris Van Assch.
Just like the artists in the scene that she personally admires, DJ Kiraz's approachability and down to earth attitude combined with her unparalleled musical prowess have made her a beloved artist in the eyes of fans, something that has led her to astonishing international acclaim.
"The first reason I'm a fan of DJ Kiraz is because she plays real EDM music. Japanese DJs play EDM as well, but their taste is more melody oriented," explains Reiji Kobayashi, one of DJ Kiraz's most dedicated Japanese fans.
"Elin's mixes are more beat oriented, which helps me get into the zone and dance without thinking. The second reason is that she is not only beautiful, but she is a very accommodating person; personality is an important factor for a top DJ, and as far as I have seen she is very kind to everybody."
For the past year DJ Kiraz has been blasting her signature sound for an ever-growing fan base at high-profile clubs in Los Angeles, most notably Exchange LA.
Although Kobayashi now lives in London, he says, "I miss her as a DJ so much, so perhaps I should start going to L.A. to see her at nightclubs there."
Earlier this year DJ Kiraz found representation with Alejandro Rodriguez, a highly respected manager in the electronic music scene who is known for working with other prominent artists like Steve Aoki, Deorro, Nervo, Joachim Garraud And Autoerotique.
With a solid list of incredible accomplishment as an EDM DJ already under her belt, a coveted collection of clubs and events across continents vying for the chance to add her to their line-up, and Rodriguez as her manager, there is literally no stopping DJ Kiraz!
