Kasey Riot: if house turns you on, give this woman’s music a head first jump into the audio rabbit hole. Her production is deep and crisp with vocals craftily folded into hard basslines and mesmerizing fade outs that pull you back in. Musically influenced by powerhouse women in EDM such as Maya Jane Coles, Hannah Wants, and Flava D. If you vibe to the music by any of those 3 Dj’s, check Kasey Riot out. Her music will fulfill all your house needs and who can resist a woman behind the decks.
Incredible music production aside, Riot cares about the EDM community. Dynamo’s like her on the scene help drive forward this wild community. While being one of the most inclusive atmospheres it’s also undeniably male dominant. Hotline is Riots warehouse series aiming to connect female artists by providing opportunities for women to get behind the decks and slay a dance floor.
Riot is back in Canada after a career move to London where she rocked sets at Ministry of Sound and Ibiza. With loads of mixes on her Soundcloud I encourage you to pick one, I’ve done 3 and they’re excellent. You can catch her at Chvrch of John on January 12 for a Strictly Female Dj Night Series.
