“Music Watching Over Me” Album Release Tour

Deniz developed a deep love and connection to the sentiments of electronic music during her studies in the USA. Growing up with constant exposure to art from her mother, an influential art initiator in Turkey, and years of intensive classical piano training left her with a professional work ethic and a passion for art. An accomplished interactive sculptor, she quickly made a name for herself in the experimental art scene combining the use of sophisticated computerized LED arrays and mirrors. Her work has been the centerpiece of countless Wolf + Lamb parties in Brooklyn, and has appeared in various art festivals and exhibitions such as Burningman, Communikey, Horizons, Love's Secret Domain, and Rabbit Hole.
Dyed Soundorom had an unusual entrée into dance music. The owner of infamous Paris nightspot Les Bain Douches spotted something in the hyper, perma-smiling party kid and approached him with a request: “he wanted me to put on a party with an underground sound,” says Dyed with a grin. And that is what he has been doing ever since – as a promoter, DJ and especially as a gifted producer.
Dyed is as adept at juggling beats as he was dribbling basketballs, and he approaches every club with the verve and energy of an athlete rushing into competition. From the cutting edge dancefloors of Batofar and the Rex Club in Paris, his DJ career has gone global. In recent months Dyed has racked up an eye-watering number of air-miles and brought his deft touch to the hottest parties on the planet, including Berlin’s Panoramabar, to Warehouse 702 in Tokyo, Fabric London, Goa in Roma, NYC Blk market and Ushuaia beach, the most talked-about party of Ibiza 2009. What he brings to every club is a winning mix of style and enthusiasm. He oozes cool but Dyed never makes the mistake of taking himself seriously. His only priority is to keep the party rocking.
Dyed discovered the power of pure entertainment as a kid listening to Michael Jackson’s Thriller and, like a great pop star, he understands that giving people what they want doesn’t mean compromising on quality. The past two years have seen Dyed devote himself increasingly to production with impressive results. Freak n’ Chic label boss Dan Ghenacia, a close friend, spotted Dyed’s talent immediately, encouraging him to do remixes for FnC’s first label compilation ‘Rendez Vous 01’. Since then Dyed has released 12”s and EPs on labels including Spectral Sound, Freak n’Chic, Crosstown Rebels, Adult Only, Supplement Facts, Safari electronique and Tsuba Records, and added his remix skills to projects including ‘Eyelights’ and the ‘Tsuba Remixes Vol 3’ compilation along with Pier Bucci, Daniel Stefanik and D’Julz.
Given his deep roots in the electronic music scene it is hardly surprising Dyed’s career is blooming. If anything the mischievous twinkle in his eye that led to his first gig as a promoter in Paris is brighter than ever, and his irrepressible urge to be at the heart of the party is just as strong. With an ever-broadening network of clubs and labels clamouring for his music there is hardly a corner of the world left that is immune to the charms of Dyed Soundorom’s underground sound.
