Catonia Whalen (DJ Catskillz) is a NYC based DJ who's had residencies all over New York including Lit, Heather's, Fontana's, Idle Hands and HiFi Bar.

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.

Plus she spins occasionally at various charity, holiday and special music events including the WIM Annual Holiday Party, and Lollapalooza parties in Chicago. Plus she has done many private birthday and wedding parties.

She spins a cool mix of new & vintage: rock*alternative*punk*new wave*electro*hip hop*dream pop*summer soul
