Juicy M is easily one of the most popular and promising female DJ and producer in the world. Having a strong background in hip-hop DJing and turntablism, she has entered the electronic scene like a power blast with her smashing viral videos on youtube of her mixing live on four decks in 2013. Since then Juicy M gained astonishing 4 million fans on Facebook, featured in Billboard’s ‘Next Big Sound’ chart and has been acknowledged by reputable magazines, blogs and events like Tomorrowland, Ultra Music, Balaton Sound and Medusa festivals.
Early years of Marta Martus, the real name of Juicy M, were tightly connected with music. She mastered piano at musical school and was a part of children folk dance collective at the age of 10. At the age of sweet 16, she already has been working as a reporter and news host on the music TV channel in Ukraine and that’s when she started learning DJ skills at local music school. Soon after graduating she began working as a hip-hop DJ at the top spots in Kiev to find herself warming up for huge acts like Backstreet Boys and Black Eyed Peas, cooperating with Fashion TV and participating in DJ contests like DMC World Championship in just a few years. But as they say, she was never enough. She always dreamt about standing on the main stages in front of thousands of party heads and kicking off her worldwide tours and that’s what eventually brought her to electronic dance music.
Juicy M’s first production, unofficial remix on Major Lazer’s ‘Watchout For This’ has been supported by heavy hitters like Calvin Harris, Bob Sinclar and Diplo himself, and hit #4 on a weekly chart by the well-known US promo pool DJ City. Being solely do-it-yourself artist she managed to open her own record label JUMMP Records, launch her radio show JuicyLand with hundreds of thousands weekly listeners, FM-broadcasted in 11 countries and find herself gigs at the world’s best club destinations, like Privilege, Pacha, Green Valley to name a few. This made her one of the most influential and inspiring characters for upcoming DJs and producers and built the army of loyal and devoted fans worldwide. Before long, the results started coming in when she has been voted as the world’s number one female DJ two years in a row by top100djanes poll and got into top 50 DJs by thedjlist. Her first original tracks ‘Samurai’, ‘Show Me Love’ and ‘Blowback’ were released on her own imprint JUMMP Records and hit the Beatport charts at 30th, 57th and 19th positions respectively.
DIY part of her career has ended in late 2015 when she became the first female DJ to sign with prestigious Dutch dance record label Armada Music, founded by Armin van Buuren. The first three songs released on Armada, each exceeded the vital mark of one million streams on Spotify bringing her to the next level of credibility not only as a DJ but as a first class producer in the EDM world. Yet staying a black sheep for many, Juicy M continues blazing her way to the ultimate top of the game!
