2013 saw DÉ SAINT living in France & Germany, working as a vocalist performing alongside DJ’s & live musicians at arthouse / warehouse parties. This time overseas was transformative in the early development of her electronic skills. Upon returning to Australia in 2015 DÉ SAINT quickly grew to be an in demand selector for global giants such as Chanel, Aperol Spritz, Formula One Grand Prix, YouTube Music Festival, Louis Vuitton, Google, Vogue, Rolex, Maserati, Moet & Chandon, Heineken, Red Bull, Sennheiser ….the merry list goes on and 2022 marks her seventh year as a musical director for International fashion houses, creating soundscapes for brand campaigns & runway shows at Fashion Week in Sydney, Berlin & Paris, all the while working tirelessly to coin her own unique recordings.
“I’ve always enjoyed the freedom electronic music has given me. To be flexible with my repertoire and gig opportunities. One day I’m playing MONA in Hobart where I can express more of my avant-garde side, then jumping into a club set on disco house heels and rounding off a perfect weekend performing on a festival stage powering progressive tech with afro beats. I simply love the diversity. This has spilled over to my writing. Don’t label me cos I’m not an artist who is set in one particular genre, I like to mix it up as you will hear in my coming releases but the one common thread that ties my music together is, you will always want to dance ”
DÉ SAINT’s new single ‘Girl DJ’ (her debut with Vicious Recordings), follows up ‘Fever’ (Winner of the Sea FM Big Break comp, reaching #25 on Beatport House Chart & receiving rotation on Triple J unearthed) and ‘Zephyr’ (Aria Club Charts at #6 with International support from French Lord Bob Sinclar and again Triple J unearthed supporting the track).
‘Girl DJ’ is a grooving tech house club cut which is inspired by the women of dance music. DÉ SAINT’s cool production gives her track a slick tech house vibe with various snippets of vocal samples perfectly interwoven into the cut. Funky bassline, rolling drums, lovely little melodic hooks and a fierce groove from start to finish really deliver on this one and we are stoked to have her join the Vicious Recordings label with a killer release!
