DYR (Uniting Souls, Reflect) is a Seattle-based DJ and producer offering a queer lens and uncompromised originality in electronic music. DYR seamlessly navigates across a wide range of genres, weaving eclectic selections of techno, house and disco. Her innovative sets are elevating dance floors in Seattle and beyond.
Locally, DYR DJs at Kremwerk, Monkey Loft, Q Nightclub, Re-Bar, and many more well-loved venues. She has also performed internationally at Kaffibarinn in Reykjavik, Iceland and at notorious underground techno club LÄRM in Budapest, Hungary. In 2019, DYR joined the local Seattle DJ collective Reflect as their newest Resident DJ. Reflect is a group of local DJs hosting monthly events at Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar.
In 2020, DYR joined local house music label Uniting Souls Music with her new track “Mondial Cosmos” featured on the label’s Winter 2020 Compilation. "Mondial Cosmos" has gained local and international attention. Simon Francis of House FM (London) says “Mondial Cosmos is lovely!”
DYR’s first single 'All The Time' earned praise around the web in 2017. Electronic North (AnalogueTrash) says, “'All The Time' by DYR is like a trip through the ages of dance music. Whilst not in any sense a retro track, it takes elements of early house music, electro, techno and Chic era disco, and blends in subtle but driving percussion to deliver a track that makes your feet want to move and your hips want to sway in time to the most infectious bassline you’ll hear this year.”
“All The Time” was featured during a live session on Seattle pirate radio station, Orphan Radio, as well as electronic music outlets such as House Music With Love, We Chill You, and Do The Dance.
"Mondial Cosmos" is "a really beautifully constructed affair. Full of ascending highs, little quirks and a rich bass. It’s an utter delight that manages originality without the need to go too leftfield or ‘difficult’."
