In her sets, Coline selects rare songs and recordings, dear to her heart, which she intertwines to form unusual mixes made of genres as diverse as aboriginal songs, leftfield techno, Malian kora, ambient, post-punk, Afro-Colombian marimba or house…
Her music has been described by Pitchfork as “tempestuous, reflective and bright”.
Driven by a strong interest in pure sound, harmony and texture, Coline draws an emotional setting, a story and a form of delicacy in her live and recorded performances.
Her work has been presented in iconic venues such as Cafe Oto (London), SET space (London), Beursschouwburg, Botanique, C12, Kiosk Radio, LYL Radio and festivals such as Les Ardentes, NoName or La Nature festival.

In 2020, she is working on the literatuurmix series, a series of short mixtapes inspired by readings that have marked her, each time based on a different theme proposed by the international house of literature Passa Porta. Coline is now the curator of the series, which she has opened to other guest artists.

Her latest project is called “lay”, dj sets composed of favorites, accompanied by visuals created by her hand, intended for an audience that will feel free to lie down and let themselves go. The title “lay” means both “to lay, to put down something or someone” and “a tune, a melody”.
