Dot is Kate Ellwanger, a 22-year-old producer based in Olympia, Washington. She is currently signed to Alpha Pup Records and a member of TeamSupreme. Dot graduated from Chapman University’s Conservatory of Music, where she was first introduced to beat production in a Music Technology class taught by Dubspot beat guru Steve Nalepa. She quickly discovered Low End Theory and the thriving Los Angeles beat community, which began to profoundly impact her production aesthetic.

Other notable shows have included Eagle Rock Music Festival, Low End Theory Beat Invitationals, Syndicate (Home Club, Singapore), as well as numerous other dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Seattle. She recently followed the release of her debut EP Calliope with a full-length album titled Evolve or Dissolve (out now on Alpha Pup Records). In addition to creating her own music, Dot has also produced for other artists including SZA (TDE), Teri GenderBender (Les Butcherettes, Bosnian Rainbows) and Kail (Hellfyre Club).
