MARIE began DJing when she was 16 years old. Music was always a part of her life, as a child she played the piano and at age 11 she learned how to play the drums.

Her love for dance music sprouted when she heard Forbidden Fruit by Paul Van Dyk for the first time. When she started, she played progressive house. Her playlists consisted of a lot of tracks from Hooj and Bedrock. Slowly her sound changed to more “girly” beats; vocal house is what she plays now. Lately she has ventured into the more tech and electro sound.
