Reid Speed has been a dancefloor Destroyer for over a decade, and is second to none when it comes to heavy bass music rinseouts of all genres. She currently runs Play Me Records and Play Me Too, the United States’ leading dubstep, drumstep and bass-of- all- genres labels while holding down a full production and tour schedule. As one of the first US DJs to champion speed garage & 2 step (which have become todays’s fidget house and dubstep), her new label’s quick rise to the top of the dance charts reflects her continually forward thinking musical evolution.
Reid started out in the New York City underground working behind the counter at the legendary Breakbeat Science store, holding residencies with Stuck on Earth, Direct Drive & Camouflage while in college at the School of Visual Arts. Drum and bass at the start, she was soon was seduced by the sounds of 2 step and speed garage and began DJing full time, producing tracks and throwing her own events. Signing to Breakbeat Science’s label in 2001, she released her first mix “Resonance” to much critical acclaim, and successfully followed it up with 2003’s “Life After Dark.” On subsequent tours with Om artists Ming & FS and Colette she honed her precise genre mashing mixing skills and developed a synergy with her crowds that is unmatched. With both her and her label’s tunes and mixes getting dropped around the world every day, this girl’s musical outreach and undeniable popularity will only continue to expand.
