Queensyze is a Canadian DJ, producer and composer, known for her energetic DJ performances and for her innate ability to connect with her audience. A staple of the Vancouver underground scene, Queensyze composes original music for film, remixes for video games, and fills floors as a DJ with sets overwhelmingly comprised of her own original productions.
Over the last few years Queensyze has steadily built up an impressive discography, releasing her raw, sinewy, club-ready techno with the likes of Nervous Records, their sub label Nurvous and East Van Digital, with her latest release The Pretty Lights EP on Nervous Records. This release broke into the coveted top ten techno chart on Beatport landing the #5 spot, it was also #20 in the Beatort overall releases chart and was in the top 100 on Traxsource for six weeks. The success of The Pretty Lights didn't stop in the charts it was also listed on Resident Advisor's top techno list of 2019, was reviewed in mixmag and was supported by top DJ's including getting played on the Drumcode stage at Tomorrowland.
The music Queensyze produces is both visceral and hypnotic, with influences stemming largely from the places she's lived and the energy of her surroundings. Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario it was here she first encountered electronic music, with the city’s drum and bass scene the first to make its mark on her musical ambitions. After teaching herself to mix and experimenting with production, she soon became one of Canada’s first released female drum and bass producers, releasing her first track alongside Marcus Visionary.
This energy from her hometown formed the early Queensyze bass and breakbeat sound alongside with her dedicated base audience, however following a move to Vancouver the expansive sparseness of the landscape inspired her to focus on the moody, tough and technically crafted 4x4 sounds which now characterize her musical output.
