Sandra Collins

Perhaps more than any other genre, electronic dance music spent the 20th century dominated by male DJs and producers, with only the occasional vocalist such as Björk or Tracey Thorn attaining any sort of notoriety. Consider Sandra Collins the first female DJ to reach superstar status in the late-'90s electronic dance music explosion. By being one of the first American DJs to champion the traditionally Eurocentric sound of trance, she quickly rose to stardom. Her beginnings on the West Coast at rave parties and at clubs led to her eventual entry into the popular Tranceport album series along with a March 2000 cover story for the important New York publication, Mixer.

After an early interest in industrial-flavored techno, it wasn't long before Collins was spinning at the West Coast's infamous desert parties in the early '90s. There her musical style become increasingly melodic and ethereal, influenced by the spiritual desert surroundings. By the mid- to late '90s, she began moving toward the sounds of progressive house and eventually the more epic sounds of trance, much in the style of mid-'90s Sasha and Taylor. By the late '90s, once the elitist class of European trance DJs rose to superstar levels, Collins began moving away from the anthemic sounds that filled the crates of these European DJs and began looking for a more American sound, characterized by West Coast producers such as Deepsky. So on the one hand, she spun trance, a very European sound removed from America, but on the other hand, she favored the handful of American producers in the genre, resulting in a unique sound. This unique sound coupled with Collins' rarity status as a woman garnered her plenty of attention, catapulting her to notoriety seemingly overnight. Many have criticized that she might never have reached such levels of stardom had she been a man. Yet despite this criticism, she was awarded the coveted opportunities to first spin at Woodstock and to mix the third entry in the extremely popular Tranceport series. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

Girlz rock :)
I LOVE that :Similar Artist bit. Of Course Van Dyk And van Buuren are on there, The made house popular IE: BMW Commercials etc. What sets Sandra Collins apart is that she can actually PLAY music, not just sample.
I saw her open for Tiesto in Minneapolis, and I have to say, she gave him a run for his money. A very powerful show!
I've always enjoyed listening to her CD set from Cream... choppy industrial techno to start that progressivel y mellows out into some great melodic trance at the end. Saw her in DC a couple times around 2000 too. Good shows!
love you sandra hope your well!!!

Blowing up!!!!!! Listening to this I am remembering the energy and vibe of the 90's West Coast Rave Scene. Spinning in that vortex of vinyl, dancing in dark abandon warehouses transcended into a sea of fog and lazer beams Sandra and Taylor were the center of our group - This creation is the sound track of a generation - a movement of unity - one dance - one soundtrack - the movie keeps repeating in my mind - Fratcals
Trip me out, I will run a marathon with this.
I saw her spinning in L.A few years ago and loved her so much!!!
After giving her an intense listen, I have to say that she is by far one of the most talented American trance DJs. The lady knows her way around beats, and she has a way of melding Euro Trance and American sensibilitie s into a unique form of Trance. She may not be that obnoxiously happy DJ who spins nothing but bright beats and tired synth lines we've all heard before but make the candy kids just go apeshit, in fact she has the balls to do what the f**k she wants and to not go with the grain.
She really is unique, an American who has pioneered their own style of trance. Most American DJs I know just try to be just like Armin or just like Darude. I'm not saying that either of those guys are bad, in fact I spin shitloads of Armin and Darude, but it's nice to see someone go their own way in the trance scene. And she's hot too, which is good.

SAW SANDRA IN PORTLAND OR AT THE ZOOTE SUITE SHE IS INCREDIBLE DID A REMIX TO OUTCASTS ROSES AND HEYA SHE'S THE S**T!
saw her in philly pa twice in 99 2000 amazing white hair an white dress never forget it music was munumental for the times
Got to love Sandra. Great beats to make nookie to.
Not a fan - her attitude ruins the vibe of any party. Taste in music is decent, but who wants sour puss controlling the decks?
Seen her live couple of times once with Mark Farina and Frankie Bones. What an evening!!
