" JD SAMSON is one-third of the electronic feminist punk band and performance project, Le Tigre. In 2007, MEN was begun as the DJ team of JD Samson and Johanna Fateman of the band Le Tigre. At the same time, JD became involved in another project, Hirsute, featuring Michael O'Neill and Ginger Brooks Takahashi formerly of the New York indie-pop group The Ballet, and artist/writer Emily Roysdon. In 2008, MEN continued to tour as DJs, while Hirsute continued to write songs and create a live performance. Eventually, Johanna decided to take a break from the touring life, and the two projects merged to become one. MEN became a band focusing on the energy of live performance and the radical potential of dance music, with lyrics speaking to issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise and demanding liberties.In addition, JD SAMSON played keyboards and sampler with Peaches on her "Impeach My Bush" world tour, and has DJ'ed internationally since 2001 throughout several different party scenes. JD SAMSON has also created the 2003 Calendar entitled “JD's Lesbian Calendar,” as well as “JD's Lesbian Utopia 2006,” which launched at Deitch Projects Gallery in New York City in the fall of 2005.JD SAMSON is currently touring as a DJ solo, “Creating space for rad people to dance and smile and hold each other.”
