Electronic music producer from and based in Washington, D.C. Hang around for some danceable experimental vibes.




What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a way to express yourself--whether you write it, listen to it, or dance to it, there's some form of expression and connection going on. There's a reason that's a common feeling, especially among creative folks. For me, I get to feel 100% myself when I'm immersed in music. And I love that because everything is more fulfilling when you get to be your authentic self.

What is your music dream?

There are a few music dreams, but the most encouraging dream is to see people enjoy dancing and vibing to my music. In what capacity, I'm still in the midst of figuring that out, but that's what excites and motivates me when I make my tunes.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Accessbility to needs and wants. Shouldn't have to earn everything in the world if we didn't ask to be here.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

My childhood in the 90s was dominated by Michael Jackson's world premieres lol. So, I have 2 songs: "Off the Wall" and "Remember the Time." I heard "Off the Wall" on cassette for the first time in my parents' living room. I think that's the most perfectly placed song on an album I've ever heard and I will dance to it anytime, anywhere. "Remember the Time" was a cool take on a new jack swing vibe. The music video premiere was also an important event in my household because of all the influential black actors and models that were featured, the cool effects, and the setting. I think both songs really captured a full creative experience, and they've both aged very well.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Excited! I feel like I'm giving the audience what they want, even if they're not initially there to see me. So, I feel enabled to share my take on music.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

I'm sure it's been placed here already, but probably the unnatural state of sharing music and art in the digital age. Following trends that rich/wealthy people create that change too rapidly, beating algorithms, and trying to protect yourself from online bullying and harm is challenging. All of that takes away the joy of telling people, "Hey! I made this thing!" However, I think people who have "made it" also notice this, and have created positive spaces for musicians and artists to share in a way that feels safe and authentic to themselves and receive helpful feedback.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I certainly try to! While I love going to see big DJs and performers, I also enjoy the experience of just going to a small show at a smoky bar or a secret location. Ticket sales, purchasing music and merch, and donations mean a lot to smaller/local artists, so I support financially whenever possible. Also, the good thing about the digital age of music and artistry is that there are more ways to support your favorite creatives, even if you're tight on a budget. So, I share and talk about their music on forums and social media, join their live videos/streams, and invite others to see them.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Musicians nowadays should have an internal fortress against all the forces that will fight against their success and their perception of success. It's hard out there! I think it's most helpful if musicians are willing to learn and take feedback to improve their music or creative process; can have a sustainable process that helps them stay connected and in love with their music as the world shifts constantly; do support other artists; and are patient because it might take years for them to blow up or even be noticed. Those things might help people navigate many of the challenges in getting more listeners. Bonus: Appreciate the validation and feedback from your friends and loved ones! They might not pay your bills and, yes, they already like you lol. But their shares matter and will keep you going when you feel low. Also, musicians should avoid resenting their process, career, or others who have made it. No one likes a grouchy person who says, "This person made it only because of XYZ."
