There’s always a lot of debate about “What makes a truly great DJ?" Are they born or are they made? In truth, it’s a little of both, and DJ Celeste is a classic example of a DJ who naturally, deeply feels the music and rhythm and has also spent over a decade dedicated to studying the art and science of DJing, music production and sound engineering. Not all DJs can claim to be able to rock the crowd AND also set up, fine tune, and run the sound system that rocks the crowd—Miss Lear hits both marks.
Armed with her own $15,000 high quality, professional sound and lighting system, a definite knack for climactic and seamless song mixing and never-ending enthusiasm for providing a top notch sonic experience for her listeners, DJ Celeste possesses all the creative flair, technical expertise, knowledge of music and ability to read a crowd that makes a truly great modern DJ. With an emphasis on keeping the sound hip, energized, sophisticated and accessible, Celeste craftily mixes everything from the hottest Top 40 and Pop hits to bouncy, high energy, Deep House music, Indie Dance and Nu-Disco to diverse World Music and Latin/Brazilian, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s classics, Hip Hop, creative Mash-Ups and Remixes. She has a special passion for rich and mellow Chillout, Downtempo, Dub, Glitch and Lounge music and closely follows all the best, most cutting-edge new underground and mainstream music producers to stay ahead of the game.
Now also an internationally recognized music producer, remix artist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Celeste also owns and operates her own recording studio and independent record label with 6 current album releases. Her music production work has been featured on Fox network’s “So You Think You Can Dance," Ralph Lauren’s “Ready to Wear” campaign, HBO, SONY, MGM, Pandora, and iTunes, as well as many various independent films.
Another interesting note is that Ms. Lear is the granddaughter of the Lear Jet and 8-Track cassette inventor William P. Lear.
