JOYCE MERCEDES

PROGRESSIVE/TECH HOUSE DJ

Joyce Mercedes’ star has been rising fast the last few years. After successful performances at Dance Valley & Impulz festivals her musical career has lifted in the Netherlands evolving into a DJ of great stature with a busy booking diary that speaks for itself, regularly visiting several continents in one month and each weekend traveling from her hometown of Amsterdam to the corners of the globe, racking up more than 20 different countries just in the first 6 months of 2005.

Joyce is exceptionally talented and is considered possibly the best female progressive house DJ in the world - we can't argue with that, her mixing and selection is some of the very finest in the style we have heard here at Sparkle and she has rightly shared centre stage with the big guns; Sasha, Anthony Pappa, James Holden, Paul van Dyk, Chris Fortier & Derrick May. Her flawless choice of records shows a nose for a quality tune and her exceptional mix technique takes the dance floor from easy and accessible vocal harmonies through deep and funky foot food to deep, trippy and hypnotic beats, soaring to stunning prog-trance monsters - a spectacular set that evidences a diverse musical vocabulary

With highlights including a DJ residency at the well known Amsterdam Super-club yo  a 2-year tour with Ibiza's Space World Tour to crown it all off., Joyce has performed in almost every major club in mainland Europe, North and South America as well as many in the Far East. Her striving for success has naturally led her into the recording studio to produce her own music, which will finally bear fruit this year with a 12"  release imminent, though Joyce admits that she struggles to fit in production time around her busy live schedule.   If it's anywhere near as good as her live sets it will be worth the wait!
