Rinse France/ Marseille | DJ SET
Mystique is a Marseilles-based female DJ who sticks to the riddim and lifts dancefloors.
In clubs (Le Sucre Lyon, Machine du Moulin Rouge or La Station in Paris) at festivals (Nuits Sonores, Le Bon Air, Les Siestes…) or on radio (Rinse France), Mystique spreads her passion for the rich sound system culture of the Latin, Afro-Caribbean and Arab diasporas around the world. Her knowledge has also been pu in light by filmmaker Hadj Sameer, who chose her as the Marseille expert for his documentary “RAÏ IS NOT DEAD” on ARTE TV!
Behind the decks, between popular melodies and hybrid aesthetics, her sets are the fruit of a true mastery of her subject and a strong political awareness, but whose ultimate goal remains to get audiences dancing with their arms in the air, in federative, inclusive and joyful moments. “Wherever Mystique’s expertise, passion and generosity shine through, she takes a back seat to the music and its cultural diversity,” says Luis Gratas, programmer at Rinse France. What’s more, he describes her as what the English call “a special DJ”.
Appreciated by connoisseurs, she remains extremely accessible to the mainstream public, thanks to her sets that blend reggaeton, shatta, hip hop or raï!
Her appearances in summer 2023 at festivals such as Nuits Sonores, Iota, Le Bon Air and Les Siestes are sure to convince many! Just like this BOILER ROOM recorded with her Marseilles audience! You can hear her attachment to historic Hip Hop (via edts by Booga or Dr Dre) to the local and current rap scene (via feats by MCs Joy C, Creamy G or Geggyto…) and to worldwide sound system culture!
Press “Based in Marseille, the DJ is passionate about the sound system culture of the Latin, Afro-Caribbean and Arab diasporas around the world.Specializing in popular music from the southern hemisphere, her fast-paced sets are the fruit of a true mastery of her subject and a strong political conscience. “She defends the cultures she loves, and she does it well,” says Luis, programmer at Rinse France, of the artist’s bi-monthly residency.” In Trax Magazine 2022.
