datgirl’s musical journey
Where Ancient meets Android. Where Sweet meets Sassyy. Where Chaos batt;es Order.
Here you will find the Lyrical Creations and Soundwave Manipulations of DATGIRL.
DATGIRL::: Live PA Bass Music Producer & MC -- Gearhead Soundcandy CyberSlut Vixxxen -- specializing in dancefloor wreckage with 100% True Live Bass-Shredding BeatFrenzied Madness, Robot Goddess Frequencies & GlitchBitch Vocals in a uniquely sweetly lyrical Glitch-Hop, Dubstep, Trap & Electro Live Production Performance designed to shake booties, melt faces, inspire giggles, and investigate mythos.
Where Undergound Bass meets Pop, DATGirl is a unique beat producer and MC, playing 100% live sets and scratching her sounds from scratch with analogue hardware gear. Her lyrical mystique and sexy zany wiles have been nothing short of cause for commotion, and her latest album release “LuvBug” brings a new sweetness to her bass music.
With a background as a renowned writer/performer with a knack for incredible character transformations, DATGirl fuses music, comedy, and theater to create multimedia mythology and girl-powered lyrical electronic dance music.
Playing a unique improvisational set solely on drum machines and synthesizers, DATGirl delivers a high-energy performance, with live vocals and her sonic laboratory of blinking toys, electronic eye-candy and tactile soundwave tools that engage a crowd into wild interaction.
An Iraqi-American-Jewish-Buddhist, DATGirl was born in New York and has spent her entire life moving between New York, LA, and San Francisco. Her bicoastal artistic roots have allowed her to study a variety of performance in all of these cities, including Method Acting, Dance, Screenwriting, and Improv comedy, at prestigious institutions including UC Berkeley, New York University, the American Conservatory Theater, Lee Strasberg School of Acting, Writers Boot Camp, The Groundlings, and Upright Citizens Brigade.
After moving to Los Angeles to pursue screenwriting and improv comedy, her vocal/electronic music “hobby” took on a life of its own. She started MCing, DJing and producing electronic music in the glitch-hop/crunk/dubstep music scene in LA, and is known for being one of the few producers to play live with drum machines and synthesizers while incorporating her own live vocals into the set.
DATGirl has created her own genre named Slutstep to represent a female oriented empowered, comically sweet, and bass-heavy sound with hopes to inspires girls to be DJs and not just DJs girlfriends. She strives to keep the element of live performing and musicianship strong in a music culture that is moving closer to computerized over-production.
DATGirl is constantly touring and is currently working on two new EPs. Her new release "LuvBug" is currently being remixed by sixteen producers across the globe and will be released on Substruk Recordings. DATGirl also writes, produces and co-stars in the EDM Comedy show "Headliners", and will be filming a full season of episodes this summer and fall.
. Hats, claps, and smokin’ raps meet
whomp, wobble and pop in a fusion of trap, drumstep, and glitchhop that will melt
#4 on the Beatport
Glitch-Hop Charts in
Featured on the
Listening Party Site
Created solely on hardware drum machines and synthesizers, from DATGirl’s signature Live PA glitchy-electro-dubstep sexy hilarious and edgy performances, her first album is a broad collection of a unique style designed to surprise. Slutstep ranges from bass-heavy sassiness to glitch-hop parodies to pop hooks to pretty frequency-rich melodies.
Slutstep was featured on the AOL/Spinner Listening Party for the week of March 6th, and AOL subsequently censored the title after Rush Limbaugh’s “Slutgate” happened the same week the album dropped. Released exclusively on Beatport, Slutstep made it up to #4 on the Glitch-hop album charts and stayed in the top 20 all month. The single “Dancefloor Talker” was #59 in the top 100 of Glitch-hop tracks in March 2012.
With tons of whomp ‘n wobble, bangin’ beats, and sparklin’ noises, DATGirl’s production has an up-and-coming freshness that adds a new flavor to the genres she inhabits. Tipper’s mastering brings out the rich dynamics of a new-found layering, as DATGirl’s raw underground spark is transformed to a pretty precision.
In Slutstep, DATGirl’s background as a character-based comedian comes to life musically, as her voice ranges from smokin’ hot to adorable to sonically soulful, giving the listener many fictional worlds to inhabit.
DATGirl’s hit single from Slutstep “Baby Got Bass” has a new music video directed by DomoAriFoto, on www.Youtube.com/DatgirlTV. Slutstep is available on Beatport, Itunes, Amazon, and many other sites and stores, or visit www.Slutstep.com.
SOME NICE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY:
“ Datgirl’s set was wicked! Very inspiring, original, creative and full powered!”
"Never before have I seen a chick rock a stage like Datgirl! Her socially unacceptable lyrics and lively delivery engage everyone in sight. Wanna see a show that doesn't make you feel like a freak? Or wanna see a show that makes you want to be a freak?? See Datgirl live!"
"Datgirl rocked my ass OFFF... and Gave me the worst case of BAAAASSSSSSSSSFACE!"
“ Many try, none compare to Datgirl...”
I'll be honest... until earlier today... I didn't even know you existed. I was looking for some good music on some streaming service through WinAmp mobile (called spinner, I think)... Pretty much most of it was dated and... well it sucked... BUT THEN.... a ray of light... I seen your album cover... being into Dubstep... I decided to give it a try...
Was it what I expected? No...
Was it good music? you bet your @$$ it was...
I went to find your web page... and found your facebook instead (and subsequently your webpage)... So long story short (too late, right?) You made a couple of new fans today (my sister was listening too). Good on ya... keep making killer tunes... we're lovin it so far...
Totally luved ur show last night (i was the blonde who hugged u as u were walking thru the crowd if u recall). Believe I also saw u at the Ridgestock Afterparty at the Brass Rail,NC also a great sho. Do u llive here in NC now? Anyway, luv the energy and pace u sustain with awareness, for dancers especially - u never clear the floor with dead air . . .
