Dimie Cat, (born 28 October 1984 in Lyon, France) is a French singer and songwriter.

Music career[edit]

In 2007, she met French producer Franck Rougier. Together, they wrote the two albums of Dimie Cat: Pin Me Up and ZigZag (Dimie Cat album) and created their own record label Dream'up. Dimie's jazzy vocal style is a mix of 40s-50s jazz, combined with modern beats and sounds. Adopting a sample based approach, their usual method is for Franck Rougier to produce the tracks at home and then Dimie Cat writes the words.

Pin Me Up (2009)[edit]

Dimie Cat's debut album Pin Me Up (released 22 July 2009), pays a tribute to the pin-up girls and vamps of the Hollywood's Golden Age and to the Swing Era. Two singles are taken from this first opus: Post-it and Glam, that appears on several Electroswing compilations.[1]

ZigZag (2012)[edit]

Her follow-up album ZigZag is released digitally 1 November 2012. First single is untitled Ping Pong and a second music video was released in February on track La voiture. One of the songs, Woody Woody, pays a tribute to American director Woody Allen through his film The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. This album insists on the Dixieland and Electroswing touch, with tracks such as Pasta e Basta, V.E.S.P.A or AAA (Triple A).

ZigZag is promoted in Japan and Korea by Japanese label Rambling Records.

Once Upon A Dream (2014)[edit]

Once Upon A Dream is a Disney themes covers album released 23 April 2014 for the Asian market. Ordered by Japanese label Rambling Records,[2] this special album confirms the presence of Dimie Cat in the territory and charted Top 3 of iTunes Japan Jazz Chart from the first week of its release.
