as the DJ

My love of electronic music began a long time ago, fueled by choreography and dance. I was first introduced to the electronic music scene in 1998 at a party called “Spastic”. From there, my love of the dancefloor and its music flourished, and every weekend (and some weeknights) you could find me dancing my heart out beside the front left speakers.

It was early in 2002 that I was first introduced to breakbeat by my best friend, production partner, and now boyfriend, DJ Domain. We threw down some funky beats for a packed room on NYE 2003, which reignited Far Side Productions. We started up Poppin’ Fresh Radio on Monday nights, playing live weekly, and inviting guests from time to time to play the best breaks available….all vinyl back then, baby!! Since April 2004, we have brought to Winnipeg incredible breakbeat talent such as General Midi, The Melting Man, Dislexik, Short Circuit, and Likwid, as well as hosting many local DJ events and fundraisers.

DJ Polly (my alias) has played many events in Winnipeg, Ottawa, Regina, and Saskatoon alongside talent such as Judge Jules, Matt Darey, General Midi, Baby Anne, Marty McFly, Robb G, Jelo, Hive, Miss Innocent, Isis Graham, and D:Fuse, among others. I was a resident at the Ritual Afterhours Friday nights in Winnipeg in 2006.

Since moving to Ottawa my breaks have cooled to a new genre – House and Deep House. I’ve been trying to find new ways to take my decks out, during the daytime. 10pm and beyond is just way past my bedtime now! My latest endeavor…Yoga Beats! I’ve teamed up with Ottawa Yogini Megan Campbell for a Yoga DJ monthly called “Beats and Bliss”  www.beatsandbliss.com
