Originally from Yokohama Japan, LA-based producer and DJ, Marie Vaunt, serves up darkly lovely brews of techno from her musical cauldron. She actually plays in two different musical acts: her “techno persona,” as Marie Vaunt, and also as one half of “Heavygrinder” with her husband, Katfyr, combining electro/house, dubstep and metal into one (yes, that’s right folks).
Marie’s musical influences cover the gamut of everything from The Cure and Duran Duran, to Danzig and Pearl Jam, to Aphex Twin and Jamiroquai…
She has toured all over the US and Canada, and has recently played alongside techno legends Pig & Dan at Avalon Hollywood.
Some of her “electro-house” flavored work:
LIVE DJ SET
She has also done interesting re-mixes of tracks by David Bowie and Slayer, and has even done anime-influenced work (check out this really cool video of her singing with Katfyr and Perry Tee on guitar, jamming on some cutting-edge PreSonus gear):
Additionally, she does modelling for various fashion brands, and she has her own record label, ONFYR Records…..
Her latest release is entitled ‘Elixir’ (BUY/STREAM IT HERE)
Here is a Spotify sampler we put together so you can get a little taste of her sound:
