From her studio in Nørrebro Copenhagen Vakle (she/her) produces r’n’b, hip hop and neo soul-inspired pop productions that are soft, sophisticated and just as cool and leaned back as herself.

 

Vakle writes and produces songs about everyday life and the ups and downs that it contains. Social strucutres, queer love, sex and being a minority in her field often takes up space in her lyrical universe. 

 

Behind the producer name you find Pia Christensen, who grew up in a small town in the southern part of Jutland, Denmark. Her journey into music production started when she inherited a bit of money and used it to move to London to study at Point Blank Music College, and since then she has studied at Haarlem in Holland and at the music conservatory of Aarhus.

 

Vakle wants to amplify musical voices that have rarely been heard, and she dreams of becoming a role model for others who want to become a skilled producer. In addition to her work as a producer Vakle has also been a part of several initiatives focusing on gender equality and creating visibility for women, non binary and trans people. She has curated her own radio show for Girls Are Awesome and taken part in the Danish movement Musikbevægelsen af 2019 (Music Movement of 2019).

 

Vakle works with a range of different artists as a producer and she is currently working on her debut album, which will be released during fall 2021.
