Girls on Decks Dance Party
In celebration of International Women’s Day, we’re teamin’ up with Girls On Decks, Dnb Girls, and Big Kitty for the Girls on Decks Dance Party!
Raw, timeless and dynamic, Erica Dee offers playful melodies over energetic rhythms with a magnetic presence. Having Funk and Soul ingrained in her roots, Dee brings a captivating performance. This Vancouver based vocalist, DJ, writer and producer has been carving out her own path in the music industry for over a decade.
Dee has had the opportunity to collaborate with and be mentored by Renowned Grammy Award Winner Jerry Wonder (The Fugee’s), electronic producer Lorin Bassnectar and multi-instrumentalist Mr. Carmack. Her first release in 2011, “Golden Mixtape ” is a mix of remixes and originals, focusing around 90’s R&B, classic Hip Hop, Dance and House. She also released her Debut Album New Skies in 2016 with Berlin’s homegrown label Long Lost Relatives. New Skies is a raw broken down deliveryof Erica’s songwriting and voice and has evolved into a series of club remixes. Throughout her career, Dee has performed in an array of musical roles; supporting other artists as their DJ and vocalist, as well as in her own solo performances. You could find Erica Dee with a trio singing jazz standards in New York, or at an electronic underground club in Berlin. Wherever you find her you will not be disappointed.
Jodie B. specializes in a live looping performance featuring her telecaster, 6 key harmonica belt, bass, violin, synth and vocals. All layered in a seamless live production with her drums self-produced in Ableton. Often you will see her older sister Nique Bruce perform alongside of her with her velvety saxophone and bloodline vocal harmonies.
Although Jodie B’s genre is difficult to pinpoint, the talented artist is widely influenced by the blues, old school hip hop and those dirty, addicting electronic sounds. While she pulls the energy from the crowd through the souls of her feet (always performing without shoes) Jodie B strives to keep live performance in the electronic world, creating timeless music in the universal language.
She’s fearless, she’s innovative and she’s influential. Who is she? Her friends call her MollyFi (AKA Krista Thibodeau) and she has been a mainstay in the Calgary Electronic Music scene since the early 00’s. Dubbed Calgary’s first lady of Breaks, founder of the Girls on Decks DJ Collective (launched in 2003), Molly has spent the better part of two decades breaking down the walls for fellow female and nonbinary DJs and performers. Incorporating FeMC’s, Vocalists, B-Girls, Rappers and even burlesque dancers, Girls On Decks has become an important and influential movement in Western Canada.
