Part of the Babylon Festival takeover
French born DJ Bloody Mary has become a staple name within the house and techno scene on an international level. Now based in Berlin, her obsession with electronic music was ignited by rave culture, and after buying her first set of turntables – she began to secure a string of gigs in the South of France, leading up to her first permanent residency at Studio 88 in Aix-en-Provence.
Having already shaped a style for herself as an impeccable DJ, she moved to Berlin in 2005 to trail after the legendary electronic music community in the capital. Quickly rising to the top, her skill became well known on a global level and she was able to set up a studio in 2006. That same year saw the release of her debut EP Apparence on Sender Records, and sparked a slew of interest in her productions – and just three years later Bloody Mary released a full-length studio album on Berlin super-label Contexterrior, the first LP to ever surface on the label’s back catalogue.
The following year DJ Bloody Mary ventured into new territory, and 2010 saw the inauguration of her imprint Dame Music. The outfit for releases from Bloody Mary’s friends has grown considerably over the years, and is now a hotbed platform for releases from huge names like Axel Bowman, Anaxander and Boo Williams. She’s also part of analogue live music outfit The Jaydes alongside Attan, and the duo tour the globe performing on dusty drum machines and vintage hardware, and releasing music on labels like Sound Of Vast, Wilde Label and her own Dame Music.
Although not pinned down to one genre, DJ Bloody Mary’s output is a far-reaching journey into the authentic raw sounds of 90s house and techno. This year, she’ll be playing at Australia’s Babylon Festival, and as part of Babylon’s takeover of our Tracks Of The Day series, she’s picked out four tracks that take her to another place.
