If you haven’t heard her name, you will soon.
A rarity in the dance music industry, this multi talented producer / DJ / writer & singer has set the bar… and isn’t looking back.
Originating from Melbourne Australia, Katt’s willingness to keep it real is backed by a refreshing skill in music production, and an entire life devoted to music. A drummer at only 9 years of age, she’s continued the music pursuit throughout both school & university studying multiple production, vocal, & music performance courses that are the driving force of her career today.
They say that knowledge is power, and Katt’s clever switch to the dance music scene at 19 saw her very first release ‘Forever’ debut on BBC Radio 1. Co-produced with Stevie Mink, the single was spun live from Ushuaïa Ibiza for the show by Carl Cox, and was the beginning of the young DJ’s dance career. Spurring interest from Pete Tong himself, ‘Forever’s second appearance on Radio 1 lead to a top 20 position in the Beatport Electro-house charts in 2011, only 6 days after it’s release.
Not stopping there, the duo’s second release ‘Everyday’ was signed to UK dance label ‘Cr2‘ Records, and featured on the 2012 WMC Miami compilation. That same year, Katt’s first ever solo release ‘You’re My Excuse’ hit 39th place on the Australian ARIA Dance Charts, followed by 25th position for her collaboration ‘Good Times Together’ with Irish born Reuben Keeney.
It didn’t take long for Katt to reach #1, and she did it in style, smashing 1st position on both hard dance categories of ‘Beatport’ & ‘Track It Down’ for her 2013 release ‘Indestructible’. In collaboration with Netherlands based DJ Frontliner, the track went on to become one of the biggest hard dance releases of 2013.
Not a stranger to travel, Katt’s recent bookings include that of Marquee Nightclub, Mansion Singapore, and a back catalogue of shows in Ljubljana Slovenia, Indonesia, Thailand, and New Zealand. Her multiple trips to Amsterdam over the past 6 months highlight her demand, having performed at Holland’s Mysterland Music Festival, and then Heineken Music Hall early 2015. Her talent & skill in music production, vocal writing, and DJ’ing have lead to a number of exciting collaborations for 2015, and a signing to Cloud9 Publishing in Holland – home of Hardwell, Kill The Buzz, W&W, Marcus Schossow & many more.
When asked what her goal was for 2015, her response is simple; “Releases!” And judging by the strong support already shown from dance music heavyweights around the globe, there’s no doubt in any ones minds that this talented young girl is ready to set high standards in the dance music industry for 2015.
