JD Samson
JD Samson is best known as leader of the band MEN and for being one-third of the electronic-feminist-punk band and performance project, Le Tigre. For more than a decade JD's career as a singer, producer and DJ has landed her at the intersection of music, art, activism, and fashion.

In 2007, MEN began as a DJ/Remix/Production team featuring JD. Eventually, MEN became a live band and art collective. MEN's debut full length record "Talk About Body" was released in February 2011 by IAMSOUND in the USA and through Sony/Columbia in Europe. This was followed by the release of the EP "Next" in April 2012. MEN is currently finishing up their new full-length album for release in early 2013. Since their inception, the band has toured extensively internationally from LA and New York to Moscow and Shanghai to Paris and Sydney, whether it be at museums or dance-clubs, performing with the likes of Gossip, Peaches, and CSS.

JD Samson has been DJing internationally since 2001 and has found her way through many different scenes and genres. Whether she is playing at a cavernous nightclub, a museum, the beach, or a dive bar, JD focuses on "creating spaces for rad people to dance and smile and hold each other." JD is an innovative, crowd-pleasing DJ and can swing as many ways as she wants to make an amazing night.

Throughout the years, JD has been photographed and featured in a near-endless stream of magazines, publications and fine art projects, as an androgynous sex symbol and "icon of nerdy-cool" (New York Times). Most recently, JD was photographed for a seven page spread in Vogue Hommes International, profiled by Interview Magazine and wrote a widely-quoted piece on the economics of being an artist for The Huffington Post.
She is, in short, one of the most engaging and forward-thinking DJ/producer/singer/activists working today. As her influence continues to grow her music and perspective ripples ever outward.
