Hailing from the picturesque shores of New Zealand, DJ Camille has been a musician since the age of 4 years old. Having mastered a number of instruments such as Violin, Piano, Harmonica, Bass Guitar and Drums, she moved on to Turntables and has been rocking dancefloors since 2000, not to mention she is also a qualified Audio Engineer. Undeniably this girl has music flowing through her veins!
Her sets are a seamless mix of Deep Jackin House, Tech House and everything in between. She captures the listeners imagination with irresistably infectious melodies infused with phat, chunky basslines, and slamming percussion. She has supported the likes of Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Joey Youngman, Jason Hodges, Joshua (Iz), and Inland Knights to name a few, having taken her mixing skills around the world.
In March 2011 she jetted off to Miami for the Winter Music Conference where she met her man 4Peace (of High Maintenance, Juiced Music, Cabbie Hat Recordings) and together they formed the duo “SoulMates”. You can catch SoulMates playing live every week with their “BeatBox Sessions” radio show Fridays 9-11pm CST on Chicago House FM. (www.chicagohousefm.co.uk)
Camille spends a lot of time in the studio and has released tracks individually and also as Soulmates on Caliber Sounds, Cabbie Hat, Caboose, CHFM and Panhandle.
Camille is also the Head Honcho for label Caliber Sounds, which features some of the best House producers in the business including: Robb Swinga, Ryan Truman, Rescue, Flapjackers, Ignacio Robles, J-Caprice, and many more. (www.calibersounds.com)
Camille is a true musician, her love of all things music make her one not to be missed!
House Head Speaks: Usually I don’t feature a DJ this quickly but if you like what you hear, share it with the world. That was my reaction the moment I hear SoulMates. Their style of House is as unique as their show on ChicagoHouseFM.com. You have to check them out and see for yourself. H2S is proud of this DJ Discovery. This House Head Has Spoken!!
