"Leeloo-like DJ, Henri comes from a galaxy frequented by Amon Düül, André Courrèges and Luc Besson. Back to the future."
- L'OFFICIEL Magazine
DJ Henri has managed to mark her territory in a variety of creative fields – New York Times best-selling author, DJ, producer and rising fashion icon – but, let's narrow it down to her reigning creative endeavor: music. Spinning sets that range from deep house and techno to disco edits and pop, Henri keeps heartbeats racing and bodies bustling, leaving her audience captivated and hungry for more. London-born, Los Angeles-raised, Henri has made her mark on both sides of the Atlantic as a DJ/producer, spinning at some of the hottest parties and clubs in L.A., New York, Miami, London, Glastonbury, Ibiza, Coachella, Cannes, SXSW, Bodrum, Mexico, Buenos Aires and Vienna. In 2017, Henri DJ'd at the Rabbit Hole in Glastonbury, the last ever Secret Garden Party, Turkey's Chillout Festival, and the Evening Standard Theater Awards; she has DJ'd for the world's top fashion brands including Chanel, Versace, Marc Jacobs, The British Fashion Council, Stylebop, Nicole Miller, Self-Portrait and Glossier; as well as performing regularly for AmfAR, Warner Music, The Soho House Group; Art Basel Miami; London and New York Fashion weeks, and Miami's new favorite spot, the Faena Hotel Miami Beach where she is music ambassador.
Henri's remix of Flight Facilities' 'Two Bodies' feat. Emma Louise (Glassnote/Win Music) blew up online in 2015, reaching Number 2 on the Hype Machine charts and featuring on multiple "best of the year remixes" lists. Henri's debut single in 2014, "It's Like This, It's Like That," was a nu-disco summer anthem received by much critical acclaim, and it has since been synced on multiple TV shows including 'House Of Lies' starring Don Cheadle. It was followed up with her deep house EP, 'Dark Star,' featuring a cinematic string arrangement by Lana Del Rey's co-producer Dan Heath. On December 2, 2016, Henri closed the year with an infectious 2-track melodic house EP: The first track, 'Fine Day,' is an lush cover of Opus III’s early 90s cult classic, with a late night remix by Applebottom, one of the UK's most respected young DJ/producers. Henri's version features Iceland's darling Aníta Briem's hypnotic, breathy vocals, which are layered over an interweaving synth arpeggio and repetitive piano chords, instantly putting its listeners into a blissful state of trance. 'I See Ice Cream,' the second song on the EP, is "the perfect sunrise track – joyous and hopeful with just the right build and release." Its four-bar chord loop gradually develops and opens up until it reaches a euphoric climax adorned with psychedelic synth sounds in the final chorus. Henri's Monstertooth Mix of 'Fine Day' is the first track on Warner Music/Big Beat's Paris compilation album.
In 2017, Henri released 'Sunshine of your Love,' on the Dutch dance music label Armada Deep. Slotting into the realms of hypnotic electronica and late-night dance, 'Sunshine Of Your Love' – featuring the enchanting vocals of Fiora (who has worked with the likes of Armin van Buuren, Tensnake, Erick Morillo, Andy C) and mixed by James Reynolds (Tinie Tempah, Selena Gomez, Pixie Lott) is deep house at its core, with a catchy vocal hook over a massive killer bassline that will send waves of rapture through your body.
Henri started 2018 strong, releasing her progressive melodic house track "Hiding" on one of the most in-demand, independent dance music labels, Anjuna Deep's Miami Compilation, just ahead of Miami Music Week. The track is featured on Deezer's Running Mix and Today's House Club playlists.
2018 has already seen Henri traveling extensively, DJing in Utah for Summit Series, Los Angeles for Chanel's annual pre-Oscar party, in Paris's Grand Palais and for Hotel Radio Paris, and in London for Universal's BAFTA party and the Warner Music Brit Awards party. She curated the music for Nicole Miller's Autumn/Winter NYFW show and will DJ the launch of Self-Portrait's London flagship store this week. Later this year sees Henri releasing a remix for Sofi Tukker as well as some highly anticipated releases on her own label Monstertooth Records.
In 2014, Henri was the official host for the televised Burn Residency program, hosted in Ibiza, with electronic music legends Pete Tong and Carl Cox acting as mentors. It is currently being aired on MTV.
