Penny Metal - the original Mad Tunes DJ
'The truly anarchic Penny Metal is a DJ extraordinaire, boldly playing tunes no one else dares. Her passion for Eastern European and Russian music shines through in the eclectic sets she unleashes on her audiences. Innovative and inspirational, expect a quirky soundtrack of rich folk anthems and eccentric electronica splashed with polka, surf and chiptunes. With wry humour and a cheeky grin she propels you into your own personal cartoon.
Her greek bouzouki hurricanes and slapping polka drives make any club or festival crowd scream... - Kosta Kostov, balkanXpress
Penny really stands out from the crowd - no one can touch the variety, the richness and the fun of her sets - Continental DriftsPuts a smile on my face every time I here her play. Just awesome! - a fan
