Bloody Mary – DJ, producer, label owner at Dame-Music and one half of The Jaydes (live act).
Always on the lookout for new sounds and fresh music, the sets of this French-born, Berlin-based DJ provide a fine example of what is happening at the moment. Bloody Mary grew up in the region of Aix en Provence. Her favorite musical genre was new wave until she went to her first rave party and discovered the world of electronic dance music. Bloody Mary held a monthly residency at Studio88 (Aix en Provence) and her subsequent move to Berlin in 2005 took her career to an international level. Having already focused on her DJing abilities, she then set up her own studio in 2006. This led on to her debut release, ‘Apparence’ on Sender Records.
Bloody Mary released her debut full-length album, ‘Black Pearl’ in 2009, which was the first artist album to appear on the label Contexterrior in its seven-year history. The album revealed a wider picture of her personality to the public, filled with emotion, and is considered one of the best experiences so far as a producer! She then went on to release three vinyl EP’s corresponding to the album, including remixes by Jay Haze, Sasche Funke and Shonky.
After building up a successful DJ and production career, what’s a girl to do next? For Bloody Mary, the next logical step was to launch her own record label in 2010. Dame-Music is a hub for tracks and talent that she has befriended over the years in the worldwide techno/house scene. The major success of ‘Spinning Around’ on her ‘Arabesque EP’ (Dame-Music 004) released in November 2010 feat Eyke, gained air play on some of the biggest radio stations in Germany. After this success, Bloody Mary then went on to play the notorious Panoramabar (Berlin), which then gained her entry to the ‘Wilde Agency’ roster.
At the end of 2012 she started a new project called ‘The Jaydes’. The Jaydes are based in Berlin and are comprised of two friends and studio partners – Bloody Mary and Attan. Their first remix of Anaxander’s EP‘7 Ways’ on Dame-Music was a good introduction to their album, and now ‘Step On Light’ (Dame-Music 022) is an indication on what’s to come. The album ‘The Jaydes’ is set for release in February 2014 and will include nine tracks and some serious featuring artists. Their Live Act uses analog studio machines as their production.
