Catonia Whalen (DJ Catskillz) is a New York City-based DJ who's had gigs and residencies all over Manhattan & Brooklyn including bars such as Studio @ Freehand Hotel, 2A, Rockwood Music Hall and Rose Gold.

DJ Catskillz's passion for music blossomed in high school from listening to her twin brother's rap collection: Run DMC, Ice-T & Beastie Boys, and from stealing Blondie and Prince vinyl from her parent's album collection.

She started as a Disc Jockey on commercial radio at 19 and that same year she began spinning vinyl at her college campus bar in her native homeland of Canada. She's also continued to DJ while working as an executive in the music business in Toronto and New York.

She spins at various charity, holiday and special music events including DOC NYC Visionaries Tribute, Speakeasy Music & Tech Mixer, the WIM Annual Holiday Party, and a few Lollapalooza after parties in Chicago. Plus she has done many private birthday and wedding events. More recently she spun an after party for The Hold Steady after their sold-out residency at Brooklyn Bowl.

She spins an eclectic yet cool mix of new & vintage: rock*alternative*post punk*new wave*electro*hip hop*dream pop*super soul
