Battle of the 1Bands


Kirsten Azan, baptized Bambii, is one of Canada’s most compelling new DJs. Whether online or on dancefloors, her political and musical vernacular give credence to dance music’s ever expanding reach, the relationships it helps forge between individuals, cultures and spaces. As proof, the last year has taken her across North America, on stages like Brooklyn’s AFROPUNK, and across Europe as a solo artist and on support for some of the world’s most relevant artists - Mykki Blanco, Kelela, and MikeQ, to name just a few. This summer, she will add Asia to her growing list of tour destinations to promote her debut, solo EP. At home, her event series ‘JERK’ is still hitting capacity and still true to its roots. Elsewhere, her work has been publicized in FLARE, Wonderland, CRACK and The FADER.
