Once upon a time in the early 1990s, 13yr old Emily set out to make mix tapes for all her friends. She wished more than anything that there was a way she could mix the songs together and form one continuous song to share with everyone.
Little did she know her wish would one day come true.
Emily arrived into the electronic dance music scene in the early 90’s. The first nu skool breakbeat record she ever heard captured her soul, and soon DJ MLe was born with a unique ear for the broken beat. After learning how to work the decks, she emerged quickly in the Denver club scene as one of Colorado’s best in town. She obtained a weekly residency in the basement at Denver’s Club Vinyl, and soon was given her own weekend Friday night headlining slot. During her time at Vinyl, she had the opportunity to open up for and play alongside the worlds very best Dj’s and producers.
It was during this time that she won the title of Denver 's Best Dj in 2002-2003 from Clear Channels 93.3 KTCL radio station. In 2003 she obtained the title of Readers Choice Best Club DJ 2003 from Denver 's entertainment newspaper The Westword. MLe began a radio show on the award winning Breaks FM during 2005, and Stanton picked her up for an international sponsorship in 2006.
Wicked smooth mixing skills, proper track selection for every crowd, and an unmatchable energy has elevated Dj mLe into a class above the rest. Over the years, she has been consistently booked all over Colorado, headlining Denver hot spots such as the Church, Vinyl, and one of the countries top rated clubs: Beta Night Club. National touring began in 2006 and she has hit almost every major city since. LA’s Viper Room picked her up for a residency in 2009, and in 2010 she continues to be featured at clubs and parties in NYC, AZ, KS, MO, FL, NV, and Costa Rica. MLE recently had a 5 page spread about her life in the Tattoo Magazine “Rebel Ink”, which released an all female edition called Rebel Pink in June of 2010. With Kat Von D on the cover, this massively increased MLE’s national exposure and has excelled her career and future bookings.
Production for MLE became solidified in 2009 with her signing onto Velcro City Records to release a series of her own high energy electro and breakbeat productions throughout the year, coupled with remixes by top notch producers such as Lazy Rich, Keith MacKenzie and Dj Fixx. In August of 2010 MLE produced a track called “Do the Deal” featuring her own vocals, and co-created, produced and directed a video with internationally renowned photographer Sean Hartgrove through You Tube. The video created quite a frenzy, due to its graphic content, fun characters and solid footage shot by David Renwick and Jason Casarez and edited by Jason Casarez. The video gathered all local performers, entertainers and extras, and was filmed at Denver’s very own Beta nightclub. The release party for the video drew 1000 people at 10pm to help MLE celebrate the release.
Needless to say, each year MLE’s success is solidified with talented mixing, amazing stage performances and creative productions that leave people talking for months.
