- SAPPORO STAGE
Mary Droppinz lives by a simple truth: music is an out of body experience.
Her eclectic sound travels all over the dance spectrum and takes listeners on a journey across genres- seamlessly blending electro, breaks, house, acid, techno, UKG, speed garage, minimal dubstep, DnB, and hip-hop all in one set. Mary’s fascination with rhythm began when growing up in her native Omaha, Nebraska as a result of her father’s seasoned skills as a drummer. She quickly started on the piano and carried that musical influence all the way to her current home of Los Angeles where she also went to production school at IO Academy.
Her technical skill whilst DJing has turned her into one of the strongest selectors in Southern California. Over the last year alone, she has played across the country and internationally taking on major stages including Spybar, Amnesia Ibiza, Mission Ballroom, Greek Theater Berkeley, Elsewhere NYC, Brooklyn Mirage, insane debut performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Coachella, EDC LV, Dirtybird Campout, Seismic, Groove Cruise, Desert Hearts, and a residency at Discopussy in Las Vegas. Additionally, she has released exclusive mixes for Diplo’s Revolution on Sirius XM and the infamous Cutsnake + Friends radio show.
Mary’s production is just as versatile as her DJ sets and definitely just as successful. Her combination of breakbeats and acid-driven tracks have become recognizable to listeners almost immediately and landed her support from staple press outlets such as Gray Area, Billboard, EDM.com, EDM Identity, and The Hollywood Times. In the last two years since she started releasing music, her Spotify has boasted a total of 220k listeners overall with over half a million streams surrounding her debut releases. Her discography includes 2x EP’s on Zeds Dead’s Altered States, past remixes for Justin Martin and LP Giobbi, and has received support from the likes of Steve Aoki, Destructo, BLOND:ISH, REZZ, Claude Vonstroke, Mikey Lion, Anabel Englund, SOFI TUKKER, and Lee Foss.
The talented producer and DJ’s mission is to educate people about different sounds in electronic music, create a safe environment that transcends the dancefloor, and truly connect those experiencing it to each other and the music. With an album in the works, a slew of forthcoming releases across multiple labels, collaborations, and the last run of shows of her “Too Sweet” Tour at Fresh Start SF for NYE and CRSSD’s PROPER NYD- it’s safe to say that 2023 will be the year of Mary Droppinz.
