DJ and Producer D Poetica started creating beats and DJing in 2002 in Bend, Oregon. After living all over Oregon and in the Bay Area, D Poetica’s DJ sets and beat projects have evolved into a mix of sounds and styles deeply influenced by the fusion between technical electronic music and party-style, dance-floor hip-hop.
D Poetica aspires to produce beats and mixes that are not only accessible and fun but also have something genuine and new to bring to the table. D Poetica’s sound is largely influenced by such innovative pioneers as Megasoid, Lazer Sword, Nosaj Thing, fLako, Powell, and Flying Lotus who are forging the way with their own brands of futuristic street level bass heavy music.
After cutting his teeth on playing electronic music in warehouses and house parties, D Poetica fell into the club scene in Portland, Oregon. D Poetica now runs a monthly party called ‘Blown’ with his longtime friend SPL. Blown is a night for all different styles of bass heavy music where Portland’s large local DJ talent can flex and strut their stuff behind the decks.
Whether D Poetica is generating beats, creating intricate graphic designs, or rocking Portland crowds with his own brand of bass heavy bangers, he will always be striving for originality and innovation.
