From rural Victoria to the world, CC:DISCO! has built her life around one guiding principle: music first! CC’s career has given her the perfect creative outlets to express her first love – be it DJing around the globe, holding down a regular radio show, or curating her acclaimed First Light compilations.
On her road from radio host to warm-up DJ to headliner, CC has never once compromised on her sound. Slow, pumping, romantic, playful, uplifting – these are the feels that people around the world have experienced listening to CC in action. Ultimately it’s about connecting with other music lovers on a physical and emotional level: less chin-stroking, more dancing!
You could be chilling in a listening bar in her adopted home town of Lisbon, getting freaky in the late hours at K41, Doka, Djoon or Good Room, or losing your mind at major festivals like Kala, Pitch Music & Arts, Love International, Horst, Waking life or Glastonbury – even on the biggest stages, it always feels like CC is playing just for you. She also transmits this feeling regularly over the airwaves, appearing on Rinse FM, NTS, BBC6, Triple J and Dublab, and making multiple appearances for Boiler Room.
CC keeps loyal connections with the Australian scene and the musicians she meets on her international travels, channelling these into her First Light compilations. Now two volumes deep, the series has already given a platform to diverse artists from across Australia, Japan, Zambia, Indonesia, Canada and Sweden.
Perhaps that’s the real fundamental of CC’s path as an artist – the space she creates for others. It’s reflected in the reminder she often gives after a gig: that the DJ just plays the music, and is no more or less important than the security guard, the bartender or the cleaner. It’s a humility that translates on a global scale – and you’re included too.
July 2023 sees the release of CC’s debut EP of original music via London-based independent record label Phantasy Sound, founded by DJ/producer Erol Alkan. The release will include the Original and Club mixes of ‘Chez Moi (Waiting for You)’ featuring Confidence Man and ‘Out Of Your Mind’.
