Olin (named after the Mayan Goddess of movement) is the creative alter-ego of Perth born, Melbourne based DJ Kelsie Cat. Her musical journey started in the womb some 27 years ago, where she would excitedly dance around inside of her mother to the deep vibrations reverberating from her fathers bass guitar while he would rehearse. She considers herself incredibly lucky to have grown up in a noisy household where her family members all appreciated good quality music and nurtured her passion for sound. In 2007 Kelsie went to her first doof in the West-Australian bushland. This is where her passion for dancing, bass-music and hypnotic rhythms; combined with her love of the Australian outdoors inspired her to pursue a lifestyle supporting the outdoor music & psychedelic culture. In 2011 she finally moved her way from the dancefloor to the decks (and until her move to Melbourne in 2013) was one of the only female DJs to regularly perform in the W.A. outdoor party scene. Olin is best known for her original taste in techno, progressive and psytrance. Favouring deep and driving progressions, intelligent percussion sequences combined with dark and seductive undertones. Paying great attention to tracks that flow with the the energy of the dancefloor. Her performances have been described as: “A guided sensual journey through a hypnotic… or psychedelic underworld.” She has performed along side artists such as Coming Soon, Ryanosaurus, Zen Mechanics, Grouch, Knobs, Dirty Hippy, Interpulse, Compliment, Hypogeo, One Tasty Morsel, Jay Lumen and Triforce at Indoor/Outdoor/Warehouse venues all around Australia and New Zealand. In early 2014 she created the events collective ‘Groovement Productions’ in Melbourne, as a ‘grass roots’ artist support network and a platform for collaborative events. Later the same year, she teamed up with the Australian techno hub ‘Bassic Records’ as label DJ and representative. This year she has dedicated her focus toward her own production under the alias ‘Scilence’ whilst still performing regularly at local and interstate parties.
