Years of DJing/VJing and involvement in ‘Pandemic Live-Streams’, such as ‘Mystery Box’ most recently and festivals such as Shambhala, Diversity, Electric Love, Bonfire, Under the Volcano, Vibe, Hi Society, Sublunar, Intention, etc…. and decades of underground parties have shaped and evolved her sound into an eclectic mash up of any and all electronic genres, heavy on the DnB, Brx, West Coast Bass, House and Techno side of things… woven to suit the subtleties of the moment with loving care and passion.
Her early years as a DJ began in 1986 while attending Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her début at Vancouver’s ‘Celebrities Nightclub’ brought the house down with a three hour eclectic Industrial-trance set. She continued along those lines, mixing the CRÈME DE LA CRÈME of Electronic, Industrial, Metal, Punk, Ska, World, Jazz and Classical music through out B.C. and Alberta, while at the same time producing ‘Dance Jams’ and a weekly ‘Wakefield’ series of dance parties, as well as a myriad of Thumpin’ local events in the Sunshine coast of B.C. She moved to Chile in 1995 where she DJ’d at Santiago based night clubs ‘OZ’ and ‘Blondi’ and many underground dance parties affiliated with the ‘Euforia’ team which is still going strong. In 1997 she moved to Quito, Ecuador to be the resident DJ at an Acid Jazz club called the ‘Zoo’. Returning to Canada in 1999, she left her old sound down south and began a decade-long love affair with Drum and Bass, spinning her magic and producing events through out B.C., Alberta, Washington and Mexico. Her sound these days has evolved to include a vast range of genres, giving the dance floor what it yearns for in the moment, as her insatiable taste for fresh new sounds feeds her ever changing style.
Aerion (Marcy Solis de Ovando) has had a long and steady musical career, beginning at the age of 10 when she purchased her first shoulder strapped tape recorder. She roller-skated around recording every sound that captured her ears… everything from 70s radio, to random ambient life. She began making tape-loops by cutting and splicing and then re-recording them, layer over layer, creating her own brand of sound. ‘I shot the sheriff’ looped with parents love making moans, birds chirping, children’s laughter, car tires screeching, train whistles in the distance, the steady rhythm of a washing machine, a cat in heat, etc… all mixed in with the vinyl tracks she playfully worked on her Mickey Mouse turn tables. She was the kid playing fresh tracks at every birthday party… and still is.
