I have only known Natalie for a few months now but our paths seem to have crossed a long time ago. The first record shop I ever bought vinyl from was Samurai Music in Wellington back in 2009 where she worked!! Natalie also played the opening DJ set at Bloom AV’s event at Kindred Studios with the Echo Chamber sound system a few months ago…it was huge, really excited to have her on the show.
Of mixed New Zealand and Japanese descent, Natalie Ex aka Excelle is a multi-disciplinary creative with futurist leanings. A DJ, Illustrator and Designer, she constructs her vivid, cross-genre DJ sets with the same sensibilities a fashion designer would curate a seasonal range. With 13 years of experience, she is just as comfortable spinning anything from House to Jungle for a hyped up dance floor as she is piecing together the perfect laid-back lounge set. She has been lucky enough to, over the course of her career, share the turntables with many of her musical icons such as Oneman, DJ Krush, Kode 9, Mosca, Gaslamp Killer, Samiyam and LTJ Bukem etc.
