“The story of Lady Blacktronika is exceptional” (De:Bug)
In 1997 she hooked up with DJ friend Mattski, who gave her first
taste of music production doing vocals on numerous unreleased house tracks
with him. Frustrated with "the boys not letting her play with their toys"
she began trying her hand at house music and techno production in 2006
producing Beatdown tracks, inspired by ranging experiences from her past
in gritty street life to the 90's era nightlife of San Jose, all while
bringing a woman's sensitivity and emotion to the Beatdown genre and
Chicago influenced House music.
In early '07 Mike Huckaby discovered her on Myspace. He introduced
her to a global audience on a Detroit radio broadcast. She released her
first E.P. shortly there after on Deep Explorer in September of 2007.
Since this time her discography has come to include an array of
sophisticated original productions and tasteful collaborations with her
deeply inclined peers.
