Moogfest ALWAYS ON Livestreaming Event

Had the opportunity today to livestream a hardware set out of my living room (complete with a cameo from my chihuahua Rico Suave) for Moogfest’s Always On event.  Always On is a 50-hour livestream with continuous performances from women & non-binary electronic artists and beatmakers. Presented in partnership with Tom Tom Magazine, the livestream highlights the abundance of women and non-binary artists actively creating and performing electronic music and beats around the world – from a home-studio in South Africa, to the Moog Music Inc. Factory in North Carolina. 50 artists performing across 17 countries and 35 cities.

For my set, I was using the Moog Sub Phatty, Werkstatt, Korg Electribe and Arturia Beat Step Pro.

Check out the archived video of the performance here: https://www.facebook.com/DJPlayPlay/videos/1641689482559786/

August 2017

I’ll be crawling out of the black hole that is music producing to play several parties this month! Playing several club nights, including a guest set at HEAVY NYC, as well as a couple of disco and early electro sets, a goth industrial night, and a special early vs late 90s hip-hop/r&b set. 

July Live Synth Performance Dates

This month I’ve reduced my DJ gigs to concentrate on performing live with synths (Moog Mother 32+ Werkstatt) & my Electribe Sampler. So far I’ve just been rocking out in my room but it’s time to take the show on the road. Here’s where you can find me this month.

New Radio Show on Transit.FM

Tune in tonight at 7:30 EST for my new show on Transit.FM, biweekly on Wednesdays from 7:30-9pm EST. Super excited to be added to the already-stacked roster, & plan on playing a variety of bass music, footwork, jungle, & more. Also I’ll be streaming out of the UNC beatmaking lab so hopefully I will have a video rig set up soon to make it more of a live experience :)))
