COLETTE

Chicago native and Los Angeles resident Colette has a unique career trajectory and influence as an international DJ, singer, songwriter, and landmark figure of American Dance Music.

A founding member of the pioneering DJ collective, Superjane—along with DJ Heather, Lady D, and Dayhota—Colette has been an integral part of the Midwestern Underground since 1994. From her first mixtape in 1998 "Floating By" to her 2022 production commencement of her fifth studio album she has blazed her own distinctive trail through electronic music.

An alto since early adolescence, her natural gravitation towards integrating live vocals over DJ sets would become a benchmark of Colette's pioneering music career in DJ performance and record production over the next three decades. In 1996, Colette clocked in her first commercial dance release with the 'Moments of Epiphany' EP on Shroom Records. It would be 2000's first official mix compilation, "In The Sun" released on Afterhours, that would broaden her visibility to even wider audiences. After being signed to Nettwerk America, the release of 2001's "Our Day" mix compilation expanded her mobility to being able to co-host the nationally syndicated radio show "Maximum Rotation".

2001 saw Colette beginning a 9-Year DJ residency at Smartbar Chicago, leading up to her 2003 "Breakthrough DJ" win at the DanceStar Awards. A direct opportunity for a prominent feature in a global campaign, she was chosen to star in Motorola's 2003 marketing effort alongside Felix Da Housecat and Paul Van Dyk. Consequentially, this same campaign commercial won the "Best Song In A Commercial" at the following 2004 Dancestar Awards.

From 2000-04, Colette would be a featured artist on a handful of 12" singles that would see her connecting with progressively larger and more international record labels such as Brique Rouge (FR), Icon Recordings (US), Moody Recordings (US), Nordic Trax (CA), and Classic (UK) leading up to her first single, "Feelin' Hypnotized", from her debut artist album, 2005's 'Hypnotized' for San Francisco's OM Records.

Charting her first Billboard No. 1 with "What Will She Do for Love", the debut long-play effort from Colette became the most downloaded dance album on Apple's iTunes in June 2005, with the title track, "Feelin' Hypnotized", being licensed to the soundtrack of the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada". Not her last silver screen placement, her track "I Like The Way" produced in 2004 with Kaskade, would be featured in 2008's "Sex and the City" soundtrack.

2006's "House Of OM" mix with DJ Heather would kick off a multi-decade partnership and DJ pairing that still holds a remarkable relevance today. As Colette's international touring schedule widened, 2007 saw the release of her second album "Push", with the single "If" reaching No. 5 on Billboard.

Launching her own imprint in 2010, Colette put together Candy Talk Records as a platform to have more creative control over her music, curation, and collaborations. Running a successful Pledge campaign to fund her third album, 2013's 'When The Music's Loud', featuring the single "Hotwire", would see Billboard name it one of the top 20 Dance Music Albums of 2013, with Thump/VICE naming it "One of The 99 Greatest Dance Albums of All Time" in July of 2015.

2017 saw the release of her fourth album, 'Retrospective', and the second on her own label. This album features a collection of remixed works spanning her entire career, featuring producers such as Gettoblaster, Derrick Carter, Demarkus Lewis, Local Options and Change Request.

In 2020, Colette collaborated with Kaskade on their single "When I'm With You", which has been streamed over 6 million times. 2022 sees Colette starting work on her fifth album alongside launching her "Future Deep" tour with Pete Moss, playing select SCS shows with DJ Heather and performing solo shows worldwide.
