Colette Marino, better known as DJ Colette, is and has been one of the hottest acts to come out of the Chicago House music scene. She is a resident DJ at the SmartBar in Chicago (along with close friend of Om Records, Kaskade) and rose to fame when she started to sing over her DJ mixes.
She has been called Om Records’ First Lady of House. Her album “Hypnotized” was the most downloaded house music album on iTunes in June 2005. Along with producing hit singles, she has performed at gigs and music festivals all over the world.
In this interview for 5 Mag’s anniversary project, she discusses her classical upbringing, her first time singing over a DJ, how she started DJing herself, and her close ties to Om Records.
