Biography of Connie
Born and raised in Queens, Connie exploded onto the New York City DJ scene in 2002, quickly becoming a major contributor to the metropolitan underground. Her style marries a deep, fluid mix of forward-thinking 4/4 styles with a precise rhythmic sensibility that belies her alter ego as a thumping rock drummer in Manhattan’s Village Indie scene. Connie is a consistent crowd favorite, and a consummate pro who dependably brings the goods.
Connie’s deck-time is shared between local duties as resident DJ for NYC-Underground heavyweight Resolute, and dotting the globe with invites to Brazil, Moscow and Barcelona among others. Connie’s natural talent, and tireless dedication to her craft have earned her turns alongside a litany of techno’s most hyped, whom she regularly but humbly outshines. Riding a stream of milestones that includes a 1st place showing in the 2006 Village Voice Spinoff Contest (Prize: A guest spot at Ultrafest), hotly-tipped opening slots at the infamous Sunday School For Degenerates event at WMC 2007 & 2009, and an appearance at Canada’s biggest techno party, Piknic Electronik in 2008, Connie’s profile is steadily on the rise.
Connie tirelessly leverages her own success to create a community of sisterhood in music, inspiring other women to join a strong and growing presence in DJ culture. To date, she has trained 15 students, and in partnership with Halcyon, ran “Ladies Night,” a weekly showcase for up-and-coming female DJ talent.
Under her “conStar” moniker, Connie’s eagerly anticipated first release debuted in February 2009 on Airdrop Record’s Extraction 2 CD, followed by a remix, and a vinyl release, Sunset Tribe EP, all on Airdrop and available on Beatport. Following her recent remix on Nosi Records in 2011, Connie plans to devote more time to production, while developing new tracks with her band project, Jaded Lover. Stay tuned.
