50/50 Collective







The 50/50 collective is the Canadian born DJ duo of Janette King and Rose Golde, based in Montreal, QC. These two emerging disc women have been performing individually in the Montreal DJ scene for over two years now, consistently creating an upbeat and eclectic atmosphere. They have come together over a passion for mixing together contrasting genres, exploring a wide range of both dance and lounge music. The two prominently select rich, deep house cuts, upbeat electro, and synth heavy Italo disco tracks that bring together a dynamic array of sounds and pump up jams. Janette King is a Vancouver born DJ, producer and vocalist, currently based in Montreal, Quebec. Janette has been passionate about music from day one and has been involved in the music scene for many years. She has completed studies in jazz composition, now using music as a tool to communicate and inspire her listeners. When she's not producing music, she is mixing at various clubs throughout Montreal. Blending genres from dancehall to deep house, Janette creates positive, energetic atmospheres wherever she mixes. On top of leading and touring with her band, Janette King & The BAD, she continues to write music with electronic music producer, Jordan Esau. Their single, "Come With Me" was chosen as Montreal's number one entry in the CBC Searchlight 2017 competition. Janette has played at various music festivals including Shambhala, Victoria Ska Fest, Mural Festival, Pop Montreal and Flip Festival. Janette has also shared the stage with Fetty Wap, Cody Chesnutt, Toots and the Maytal, Barrington Levy, and Shaggy. Rose Golde (Emily Oak) is a non-binary femme DJ, multi-disciplinary artist, and creative. Growing up, she always found herself in creative environments, often exploring music and visual arts. After moving to Montreal from Toronto in 2012, she began to explore electronic music more seriously and quickly took to DJ'ing events. Initially inspired by the uplifting energy in old school house and disco music, her mixes have been shaped by up-beat, groovy tracks from the get go. In 2017, she co-founded Bas Bleu, an intersectional feminist collective, that prioritizes the accessibility of art for women and LGBTQ+ folks. Oak also creates textile and collage-based artwork under the name mil and performs live music through Montreal projects: The Submissives, General Meeting, Crushhh and recent solo project ‘f0lk’.
