Linzee first became aware her love for music back in the mid-nineties, in her home town of Toronto, Canada. Always one of the first club goers on the floor and one of the last one’s to leave, she was inspired by some of the House and Detroit techno greats such as DJ Dan, Kenny Glasgow, Fat Boy Slim, Dj Sneak, Little Louie Vega and Ritchie Hawtin.
In the summer of 1998 Linzee made the move to London, UK and soon found herself immersed in their club culture. With a lot of encouragement from her dearest friends, she realized that she no longer wanted to be simply a face in the crowd, she purchased her first pair of turntables in the summer of 1999 and has not looked back.
When Linzee was not on the dancefloor, she could be found bopping behind the decks of some of the smaller, more intimate parties around Toronto where she used the music as a catalyst to create a funky explosion of energy. Linzee has played both internationally and locally, and her accomplishments speak to her talent. She has built a name for herself spinning tunes on the chunky and funky edge of house music, gracing the decks in such international clubs as the Ministry of Sound (London, UK), Heaven (London UK), Buzz (Washington, DC), Trade (Turnmills, London, UK), Faces (Ayia Napa, Cyprus), and Volkesgarten (Vienna, Austria) to name a few. Since her international debut her travels have since found herself closer to home playing alongside the Toronto greats and has held residencies at System Soundbar, Element Bar, Boa, Make it Funky, Revival and upscale private events.
When asked about her unique DJ’ing style, Linzee smiles. “When I enter the booth, I try to remember what I was like to be a face in the crowd. I gravitate towards funky side of house because it combines the best elements of dance music with a friendly atmosphere that we all know and love.” Seeing Linzee spin, you can’t help but catch on to her infectious grooves as she bops along behind the decks. Her boundless enthusiasm keeps her focused on her goals of continuing to change the face of house music.
