Sultry vocalist and songwriter Dimie Cat develops her unique blend of jazz with hints of electro sounds and beats. Born October 28, 1984, in Lyon, France, Dimie Cat emerged on the world stage 3 years ago with the July 2009 release of Pin Me Up (Dream'up), that introduced a singular new voice and garnered much public attention. Entirely co-written by Cat and producer Franck Rougier, this album took the form of a tribute to the Swing Era and to the Golden Age of Hollywood, where Cat re-used the pin up girls and vamps codes, combined with hip-hop/electro sounds.
Cat was invited to perform at the Montreal Burlesque Festival (2010) and her music is regularly played in New Burlesque shows and Electro-Swing parties throughout the world [Glam (electro-swing remix)].
She is now represented by record label Rambling Records for Japan and Pashmount Music for the UK.
November 2012 marks the release of her follow-up album: ZigZag (Dream'up). Pairing once again with producer Franck Rougier, she pursues a similar approach to Pin Me Up: this stunning new album makes a veiled reference to Dixieland/earlier brass band marches and cabaret atmosphere, combined with modern electro sounds.
Ping Pong, the first extract of ZigZag, introduces a captivating Asian atmosphere. This track is actually broadcasted on the German radio WDR 2 and is used for the new T.V. ad of Aperol (Campari), in Germany and Austria.
La voiture, ZigZag's second extract, is a funny pinupy track that will take you for a silly jazzy ride!!!
Another extract of this album, AAA (Triple A), is featured on the English compilation Electro Swing Club Vol. 1 (Pashmount Music), with an hypnotic music video shot in the most beautiful places of Paris (Place Vendôme, Concorde, Pont des Arts).
For sure, Dimie Cat is not just another pretty face: the combination of her striking voice and original approach places her as one of the most talented singer-songwriter of the new generation.
