DJ Tanja La Croix – Biography english
The biggest daily newspaper in Switzerland is calling her “the hottest DJane of Switzerland”. But the former international topmodel wants to make an impact with her music and not her looks.

Tanja La Croix alias Tanja Wettach, born April 8th 1982, made her first musical appearance in the clubs throughout Switzerland in 2005.

Already in 2007 she released her debut album A TRIP TO BIKINI ISLAND and gained chart position 49 in the official Swiss album charts with it. What followed were tons of successful singles, remixes, EPs and compilations.
“I cannot be a single day without House music.”
In the summer of 2010 Tanja La Croix landed the next big coup in her career and became the face of the Street Parade.

In 2011 the musician released her fourth compilation HOUSE KISS and became the testimonial of the luxury automobile brand Mercedes Benz Switzerland. That’s not all. In the new funny Mercedes campaign she proved her driving skills and delivered with the own production “Star” the adequate soundtrack for it.
