Renegade Riddims: SIREN
Gemma Dobson better known by her stage name SIREN, is a British Drum and Bass Music Producer and DJ.
You can expect Drum and Bass spanning darkstep, hardstep, liquid funk, neurofunk, techstep & drumstep. SIREN is known for fast-paced skill as a public performing DJ. In less than a year she has garnered support and attention from some of the industry’s leading DJs and gained her a solid fan base within the Drum & Bass community.
Coming off the back of her well-received bootleg of Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Grace’, SIREN’s first original track ‘Advent’ on SIREN Sounds Records dropped on 1st June 2020 and made no17 in the Beatport Top100.
Her second release ‘Dusk ‘till Dawn‘ Ft MozX was picked up by BBC Introducing and premiered across 3 radio stations and ourselves!
Managed by Nick Sadler, while she is still at the very beginning of her career, SIREN has played sets at Printworks, Ministry of Sound, E1 and had secured a 2nd year residency at Amnesia Ibiza. She has played alongside the likes of Andy C, Chase & Status, Wilkinson, Sub Focus, Dimension, Netsky, Troyboi and Alison Wonderland to name just a few. The future is looking bright for SIREN!
A Bioveterinary Science degree graduate and Regional standard rider in Equestrian one day events, her passion in the electronic music scene was a far greater calling than her need to inseminate livestock.
From a die hard festival and island party goer, selling club tickets on the streets of Ibiza since 2015, a quirk of fate led to an opportunity to work alongside international best selling DJ’s as Artist Liasion/Stage and Advancing Management for LocknLoad Events, Electric Brixton, Amnesia and Ushuaia Ibiza plus Artist Management roles with SK Artists (Chase & Status), Night department (Solardo) and Paul Van Dyk.
Quietly watching, learning, studying, playing local club nights until a personal invite from Andy C to be his warm-up DJ at his first Ibiza All Nighter in August 2019, his first time ever in the all famous Amnesia Terrace, which led to her residency for Together Amnesia 2019.
Pre Covid, 2020 would have been an exciting year with live club and festival performances as well as radio appearances.
For now, she is currently working on her debut EP which she aims to show her versatility as a producer of hard-hitting dancefloor bangers through to ambient vocal tracks. Watch this space!
We’re delighted to be bringing SIREN to our Renegade Riddims series. After following her and helping to get her name out to the world over the last year, this was the logical next step! Prepare yourselves for a proper good skank out!
