Isis is most interested in exploring vulnerability and humanity in music. Her style is marked both by melodic and acoustic influences, but not bound by a singular approach – her music is idiosyncratic, emotional and versatile.
In 2002 her talent was recognized globally and she was ranked in the top ten female Tech-House DJ’s on the planet. In 2003, she became known as one of top 600 DJ’s worldwide. In 2009, The national 5th of May committee declared Isis as Ambassador of Liberty for the Dutch Independence day. This honorable title allowed her to join the Dutch queen for the annual Remembrance ceremony and to perform five big shows throughout the country. In the same year, Isis released her track ‘Liberte’. In 2010 she was appointed as ‘Nachtburgermeester van Amsterdam’ (Nightlife Ambassador of Amsterdam), and served as such for its 2-year term. Her function was to monitor the nightlife of Amsterdam and to build bridges between local politicians, entrepreneurs, artists and their audience. With partner Jesse Limmen she established the first Magneet Festival in 2011. Magneet is a crowd-sourced festival that uses an online co-creation platform in order to assist in the programming of the event, a pioneering concept in Europe. In 2011, Isis received ‘the lifetime achievement’ GK Award. In April 2012, Isis celebrated her 20th year as a professional DJ at a sold-out event in Paradiso (Amsterdam). This marked a milestone in her career, making her one of the first professional and successful female DJs in the global dance culture.
Throughout her career as a DJ, she has performed in remarkable venues and for exceptional occasions, for instance as support act for a private concert of Prince in 1993, presenting her work to His Royal Highness Prince Willem Alexander in 2009, playing for 100.000 people at the Climate Summit in Copenhagen in 2010 and performing at the official unification ceremony of Croatia with the European Union. Three of her mix albums have reached top 10 in the Dutch album charts. In 2014 she has the honor to remix Beethoven’s 5th for ‘de slag om Arnhem’ together with ‘De Gelders Orkest’.
For the 4th time a row Isis is co co-owner and creative director electronic of Magneet Festival. A crowd sourced and leave no trace festival in Amsterdam.
