After joining Girls on Decks in 2010, Blair Van Riesen has quickly become a household name in the Western Canadian LGBTQ music circuit. What started as a love for dance music, creating safe spaces for friends to party and bringing people together for the cause of gender equality, has turned into a fruitful career performing as a DJ across Canada at multiple pride events and throughout Calgary. Partnering with MollyFi on “True Colors” in 2014 has helped the girls reach a maxim for their brand and cause which has given Blair the opportunity to expand her musical tastes and offerings. Featured on Excursions.fm in July, Blair debuted a fresh new mix of progressive tech house, future house and plenty of dance floor warmers that are headed to a room near you.
