DJ Saigon is an up and coming artist with a passion for music. Starting out as an admirer of DJ culture, DJ Saigon soon turned to stepping behind the decks to bring together the sounds of house and techno that she loves. Whether she’s spinning deeper soulful grooves or moving into the glitchy, lo-fi sounds, DJ Saigon is always more interested in creating music, rather than just playing tracks by mixing records that sound almost incomplete and merging them live to create a seamless, dense blend of music. Her mix, Bubble Glitch, demonstrates her growing interest to move away from typical, West-Coast style house and into the more techno-heavy beats. Electrofried Rice, Saigon’s latest mix, pushes it further by going deeper into techno pounding grooves and electro pop cuts.
Having played at many Seattle venues, such as Bonzai, Aristocrats, See Sound Lounge, Contour, Fenix Underground, Alibi Room, Lulu’s, and a residency at Plush Crush (2002), a deep house weekly at The Deep Down Lounge featuring local acts and broadcasting live via KENU Radio, DJ Saigon is building an impressive resume of experience. On a previous project she worked with Seattle DJ legends MissKick, Brandy Westmore, and Kristina Childs on Plasmodium Radio, an eclectic internet radio show broadcasting live, every Monday from 4-8PM PST, showcasing everything from hip-hop to techno with special guests and label features.
In the studio she has also been working on Tandem House, an ongoing 2×4 DJ project with Justin Byrnes as well as a little remixing. Her newest endeavor is performing with Traktor, a MP3 DJ’ing program, off of a laptop. Currently, Saigon is the newest member of the rockin’ all female collective, HitGirl!
