Originally from Grand Rapids, MI, but grew up in Chattanooga. Still here!
I work in a lot of genres, but my main loves are hip-hop/RnB and experimental electronic music.
Timbaland, Charli XCX, Frank Ocean, Kelela, Dvsn, Kelly Lee Owens, Caribou, Santigold, Bjork, FKA Twigs, Aphex Twin
The sounds of everyday life. The rhythms of a clunky car engine. The melody of a babbling baby. The feeling of a silent wood that isn’t quite silent. The electric anticipation before that first kiss.
Seeing talented people I love winning!!!
Wolf. Running with a loyal pack to chase down our goals.
“Rise” by Tyler The Creator
I’ve been reading a lot of black sci-fi lately. NK Jemisin’s Broken Earth Series, Nnedi Okorafor’s Binti series and anything by Octavia Butler.
El Gallo Giro has the best pupusas in town.
I just discovered Chattanooga electronic artists Midist this month. Amazing stuff!!
Hard to imagine a more fun lineup. And I think the vibes are going to be pretty unique for what usually goes on in this city. The focus on inclusion and straight up party times is exciting!
