“Leeloo-like DJ, Henri comes from a galaxy frequented by Amon Düül, André Courrèges and Luc Besson. Back to the future.”
- L'OFFICIEL Magazine
Henri is known for spinning eclectic sets that range from melodic deep house and techno, to disco edits and rare bootlegs, always 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, releasing tracks on Anjuna & Armada Deep and spinning at some of the hottest parties and clubs around the world. In 2017 and 2018, Henri DJ'd at the Rabbit Hole in Glastonbury, the last ever Secret Garden Party, Turkey's Chillout Festival, the Life Ball in Vienna, and she is a staple at L.A.’s iconic Club Called Rhonda parties. She has DJ’d for the world's top fashion brands including Chanel, Versace, Marc Jacobs, The British Fashion Council, Cartier, and Ralph Lauren; and created the soundtrack to fashion shows for Nicole Miller, Levis and Paula Knorr. She’s performed regularly for AmfAR; Warner Music; The Soho House Group; Vanity Fair; Christie’s; Art Basel Miami; London and New York Fashion Weeks; and Miami's favorite spot, the Faena Hotel Miami Beach, where she is music ambassador.
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. This was followed by the single ‘Last Dance’ which she released on her own label Monstertooth Records, featuring ethereal, haunting vocals by Imogen Rose. Pete Tong featured the single on his Radio 1 show, it reached Number 1 on the Hype Machine charts, and it has been a recurring favorite on Spotify playlists. Ending the year on a high, Ultra released her ‘Benadryl’ remix for the Grammy-nominated duo Sofi Tukker on New Year’s Eve. It immediately reached number 1 on the Hype Machine charts and has already been featured on some of Spotify’s most listened to playlists.
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.
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.
