Connie, aka Constar, has been a major contributor to New York City’s underground electronic scene for nearly a decade. With a deep fluid mix of forward thinking 4/4 styles and a defined rhythmic sensibility that flows from her alter ego as a thumping rock drummer, Connie is a steady crowd favorite and an accomplished pro who always brings the goods. Whether it is as resident DJ for ReSolute, one of NYC’s hottest itinerant underground parties, or on the road touring from Brazil to Spain, Connie’s innate aptitude and vigorous devotion to her craft have earned her turns alongside a litany of techno’s best, whom she frequently, but humbly outshines. Connie has been progressively making a name for herself in the techno world. Some of the highlights have been: winning first place in the Village Voice ‘Spinoff Contest’, which landed her a spot at Ultrafest, two appearances at WMC’s infamous Made Events’ Sunday School For Degenerates and an appearance at Canada’s biggest techno party Piknic Electronik. Determinedly, Connie uses her own success to inspire other women to enter the male-dominated world of DJing. To date she has privately trained
15 students and in partnership with Halcyon Record Store, ran ‘Ladies Night,’ a weekly showcase for up-and-coming female DJ talent. In 2009, Connie’s first productions, under the name ‘Constar,’ debuted on the Boston-based Airdrop imprint.
Currently, Connie is back in the studio focusing on production with two tracks released in summer 2013: one a remix on the Smiley Fingers label with Lomez, and the other on the NYC label NOSI with Kenneth Jannett (aka K-Ends/Means). Constar is currently working on a solo EP for the ReSolute label and an EP on Lomez’s Better on Foot label. In addition, Connie spends her time with her band Jaded Lover, an 8-piece synth-heavy electronic band, rehearsing for upcoming gigs.
