Zephyr Ann Doles is a Brooklyn-based creative jane-of-all-trades. Not one to be confined to one genre or medium, her creative pursuits all stem from her love of popular culture
and the history of the African diaspora, the black experience, urbanity, and social justice.
As a DJ, she has played with legends in both the hip-hop and dance music worlds, and currently holds residencies at House of Yes, SISTERS, and a number of other well-known venues in NYC, and is comfortable making any type of crowd come alive.
She has shared billings with legends such as J.Rocc, Danny Krivit, Tony Humphries, Todd Terry, and has played the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, Full Moon Festival, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Club and party appearances include Le Bain, Elsewhere, Nowadays, Kinfolk, Soul in the Horn, and The Rub.
Methodical music collector, Madame Excuse got started as a little girl stealing her siblings’ records to listen to them in hiding.
She is heavily influenced by Funk, Soul, Hip Hop and Disco, but also doesn’t shy away from elegant, potent electronic tunes.
She combines genres in her sessions with stunning fluidity and a technique that puts the music first.
In recent years she’s been in the most interesting booths around Madrid, including berlinClub, Siroco, Marula, both spinning alone and as part of the Iguana duo.
