"The most infectious bass line you'll hear this year." - Electronic North
DYR's passion for music began while tuning in to the wonders of late-night 90s electronica on the radio as a kid. After studying music at Bennington College (‘12), she relocated to her new home in Seattle where she’s been a consistently active performer in the city’s robust nightlife. DYR has also spread her wings to DJ internationally starting at Kaffibarinn in Reykjavik, Iceland in 2009 and more recently at notorious underground techno club LÄRM in Budapest, Hungary. In 2019, DYR joined local Seattle DJ collective Reflect as their newest Resident DJ. Reflect is a group of Seattle-based DJs hosting monthly events at Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar since 2015. The events feature guest DJs alongside Reflect's talented crew, spinning Disco, NuDisco, House and Deep.
In 2017, DYR self-released her first single 'All The Time'. 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 bass line you’ll hear this year.” Inspired by similar artists such as The Emperor Machine, In Flagranti and !!!, 'All The Time' “will be sure to get you up and grooving (Stereo Fox).” The release party at The Moon @ BIG BLDG featured performances from DYR and fellow Seattleites Nick Charles, disco enthusiast Parker Mills, and DJ-Producer Meltonwax. 'All The Time' was featured during a live session on Seattle pirate radio station, Orphan Radio, as well as numerous electronic music outlets such as House Music With Love, We Chill You, and Do The Dance. Leave it to DYR to expertly navigate across genres; explore eccentric selections of disco and house, and mix electrifying rhythms and patterns that always transport and elevate the dancefloor.
