Sydney Blu’s career can be considered a journey of evolvement. With a tremendous passion for live performance, music production, and all-around artistic creativity, Sydney’s constant determination shines brightly through her accomplished Dj career. With beginnings in Toronto Canada playing for The Guvernment Nightclub, Footwork Nightclub, and the LGBTQ+ community, then following 6 years in the United States touring the continent and the globe, all the way to her present life in Berlin Germany, Sydney’s dedication to living her life through music is unbridled. A proudly Canadian artist, Sydney’s success is largely attributed to her relentless touring schedule which she’s upheld for several years. In 2009, Sydney Blu founded her imprint, Blu Music, on the principle of authentic, dancefloor-rich house and techno, the following year she extended her brand to another branch introducing her legendary Blu Party series which curates some of the greatest names of the underground house.
On top of that, Sydney has released music on some of the most recognized labels in the industry including Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep in Sound, Steve Lawler’s VIVa Music, Desert Hearts Records, Deadmau5’s Mau5trap, Josh Butler’s Origins, Kevin Saunderson’s KMS Records, Roger Sanchez’s Undr the Rdr, Katerblau Berlin’s Katermukke Records, Carlo Lio & Nathan Barato’s Rawthentic Music and more. Her release “Give It Up For Me” on Mau5trap Recordings was one of Beatport’s highest selling songs, earning Sydney the rank of first female electronic music producer to have a top 10 hit on the platform. 2018 marked another milestone for the top-selling electronic artist, as she hit Top 10 on the Beatport Progressive House Chart for her single “Escape” on Underground Audio UK and earlier in the year she hit Top 20 on the Beatport Tech House chart with her single “Mind Games” on Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep in Sound. The song also was the top-selling track on the labels Amsterdam Dance Event sampler and was premiered by Billboard Magazine.
March 2021 was the release of Sydney’s sophomore album Conviction, a meticulously produced dance floor-driven collection of electronic music, with synth-laden 80’s inspired lead single Monologue featuring Azari & III singer Fritz Helder transitioning into various shades of deep, tech, and melodic house.
Perhaps, her most fully realized body of work to date, Conviction climbed to the top of Beatport Top 10 in Afrohouse, Deep house, Minimal House, Melodic, and Tech house. Her lead singles Conspiracy, Temple, and To the Ground and were playlisted on Electronic Rising, Organica, and Housework. The LP also received media praise from outlets Mixmag, 6am Group, Data Transmission, Electronic Groove, Musicis4lovers, Beyond Fashion Magazine, HOLR Fashion Mag, and garnered radio play from Danny Howard of BBC Radio 1, Sirius XM Radio, and CBC Radio 1’s George Stromboulopoulos.
Looking forward, expect many new upcoming releases in 2021 including and a full touring schedule as soon as life returns to normal from the pandemic.
