DJ Pøptrt is a multidisciplinary artist and Indigenous DJ from the Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk) Nation of Kahnawake. She began her DJ career in 2015 while studying media and art in Montreal. Since her father shared his extensive music collection with her and introduced her to Daft Punk, electronic music has always been an important part of her life.
Before focusing on music, she started creating art in the field of graphic design and other visual formats. The name Pøptrt is a pun on pop art, an art movement that has greatly influenced her life. She also liked the idea of having the imagery of a Pop-tart to represent the soft and playful nature of her art.
She began performing after falling in love with the Montreal event and music scene. She started her first radio show, Pøptrt's Playhouse, in 2018 on K1037 (103.7 FM) in Kahnawake, which ran for over three years. Pøptrt is currently the resident Thursday DJ at Club Unity in Montreal.
