Originally from Paris but based in Athens, Marine Tordjemann alias OKO DJ’s implacable rise to prominence has seen her establish as one of the finest DJs and producers to pace the world’s stages. Core element of Judaah’s Lyon-via-Marseilles operated label BFDM, close to the Bruits de la Passion collective in Paris, initiator of LYL Radio’s Parisian antenna where she hosts her bimestrial show Pu$$y Nightmare shining a light on female artists; all of that agenda having attracted her wider recognition on an international level.

Marine aims at exploring connections rather than divisions, bridging gaps rather than widening them. Dishing out distinctively rich, genre-busting tapestries that transcend all limitative roles, Tordjemann has the secret to channeling surrounding energies and forces in her art with unrestrained panache and authenticity.

OKO DJ is also a producer and artist, greatly inspired by the healing power of nature and the sacred feminine energy. That’s how she gave birth to an acclaimed first 4 tracks EP between experimental and spoken word on Futur 2010 about the Cycle, featuring «one of the coolest downtempo tracks of the year» (RA).  Together with Tryphème, they form the duo Women in The Royal Court, which is getting wider recognition after their RBMA residency, with their latest release being a collaboration with reggaetonera Clara! on Soleil Rouge. There is definitely a lot more to expect in the future from OKO DJ, as her inspiration seems to keep growing along her personal and spiritual journey.
