When a stalwart selector like Katie Pearson starts playing, you think you know what you are going to get. They have made you move time and time again. You know the menu. You can almost taste the experience. But each time is different. Not better or worse than the last time, but its own turbulent and liberating experience. Many DJs try to avoid the tags and pinholes that genres create. Most of them fail to do so. However, most of them aren’t Melbourne authority Katie Pearson. A blank insignia, Katie has avoided this through a unique, yet authentic musical journey. She has long been at the forefront of Australia’s queer dance scene, most notably as cohost of “gay ass disco”, The Outpost. However, when you can regularly produce moments of dance floor ecstasy that Front Leftists thought only possible in the ’90s, you quickly become the scenes worst kept secret. Her musical microscope understands the entire genetic makeup of a dance party. It is a science of feeling and Katie Pearson is the expert in her field. A peak-time purveyor at festivals like Dark Mofo & Pitch Music & Arts. A mood-setting maestro for names like Honey Dijon & Chez Damier. A trusted resident of fabled institution Revolver Upstairs. A devout digger, sharing her eclectic taste on airwaves like The Lot Radio & Skylab Radio. In a world and scene built on the endless pursuit of trends, music can get monotonous at times. Sometimes though, DJ's like Katie Pearson will be playing. At those times nothing else but having a good time really matters.
