Believe You Me says
Celebrating Andy's 31st revolution around the sun with a couple of incredibly talented women at the controls.



MightyKat was born with a sixth sense for rhythm. A native Montrealer, she launched her career in 1998 and released her first mix CD "Confidence" in 2001, earning her praise both at home and abroad. Since then, she’s become a player on the international scene while continuing to organize and promote local events. She is also label partner of Pronto Musique and Release The Pressure with producer, Miguel Graça.
Counting her main influences as jazz, disco, and soul, her unique sound bridges eclectic house and the funkier side of techno. Her sophisticated style, refined track selection, and tight mixing skills define her signature sound, while her love of the dance floor drives her musical intuition wherever she plays.
A veteran of the Montreal electronic music scene, Mighykat is now working as musical director for the "Village Éphémère" and "Hivernal" two seasonal festivals base in Montreal. From 2003 to 2007, she founded with Vincent Lemieux, the wildly successful “Dizzy” night, at Salon Daomé, introducing to the city Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Zip, Sammy Dee, Junction SM. In the past decade, she’s held down several residencies at local
clubs such as Stereo and also played alongside with M.A.N.D.Y, Matthias Meyer, Atish, Thugfucker, Cassy,
dOP, Droog, Lee Foss, Richie Hawtin, Derrick L. Carter, Doc Martin, and many more...

Octo Octa (live)

It shouldn't be surprising that Brooklyn-based producer Octo Octa (née Maya Bouldry-Morrison) had already logged tireless years as a fringe IDM artist and sound designer before her debut EP Let Me See You lasso'd a mighty wave of international house-heads to the dance-floor and helped push underground house label 100% Silk onto everyone's radar in 2011. Seven records later, which include a misty deep-house slow-burner in the Where Did You Go/Through The Haze 12" for Chicago-based, Smartbar DJ Steve Mizek's Argot imprint and the soaringly luxurious More Times EP for German powerhouse Running Back, Bouldry-Morrison's finely-tuned marriage of exquisite compositional flare, meticulously-sculpted sonics, and primal dance-floor functionality has earned her a Red Bull Music Academy residency in Manhattan, which found the producer working closely with Harald Bjork and Throwing Snow, as well as tours across the world that included coveted gigs at Berlin's Panorama Bar, Frankfurt's Live At Robert Johnson, and Barcelona's Sonar Festival.

Fresh off of having SPIN Magazine herald percussive floor-burner "Cause I Love You" as one of the 50 Best Dance Songs Of 2014, Octo Octa currently has forthcomiing coming 12"s prepped for DeepBlak and Stay Underground It Pays and is preparing for another year of pushing her unique sonic perspective and shimmering club-ready earworms through soundsystems across the world.
