Once upon a time in the early 1990s, 13yr old Emily set out to make mix tapes for all her friends. She wished more than anything that there was a way she could mix the songs together and form one continuous song to share with everyone.
Little did she know her wish would one day come true.
Emily arrived into the electronic dance music scene in the early 90’s. The first nu skool breakbeat record she ever heard captured her soul, and soon DJ MLe was born with a unique ear for the broken beat. After learning how to work the decks, she emerged quickly in the Denver club scene as one of Colorado’s best in town. She obtained a weekly residency in the basement at Denver’s Club Vinyl, and soon was given her own weekend Friday night headlining slot. During her time at Vinyl, she had the opportunity to open up for and play alongside the worlds very best Dj’s and producers.
It was during this time that she won the title of Denver 's Best Dj in 2002-2003 from Clear Channels 93.3 KTCL radio station. In 2003 she obtained the title of Readers Choice Best Club DJ 2003 from Denver 's entertainment newspaper The Westword. MLE began a radio show on the award winning Breaks FM during 2005, and Stanton picked her up for an international sponsorship in 2006.
Wicked smooth mixing skills, proper track selection for every crowd, and an unmatchable energy has elevated Dj mLe into a class above the rest. Over the years, MLE has been consistently booked all over Colorado, headlining clubs such as the Church, Rise Nightclub, Club Beta and many underground parties. She has been regularly featured in newspapers and magazines throughout the years, and continues to be a local favorite in Denver. She began to tour the country in 2006, hitting clubs in LA, NY, HI, NC, AZ and finally broke out of the country in 2008, for a show in the UK.
MLE has been involved in several productions of her very own during the last few years, creating some of her very own tracks, and collaborating on a number of projects with other local artists. In 2008, MLE began incorporating Electro into her sets and production, and her performances have taken on a whole new energy. She has a masterful way of programming her sets for an evening of intelligent, eclectic beats, hard, funky bass lines, smooth harmonic mixing, and an unforgettable energy behind the ones and twos.
Dj MLe fully understands the healing power of music, and
extends a prescription for beats to all those who will listen.
