Showcasing travelogues from the global turntable...
DJing is about trust...
wHo: Hailing from the West Coast and serving sound as one of the most sought after Freestyle selectors in the Festival, Club and Ecstatic Dance scenes. A magic carpet ride of sound transports the dancefloor when Dragonfly throws down his full-spectrum, body-mind-soul transglobal sound experience. Think cutting-edge, polyrhythmic akashic bass meets primordial sound, elastic dreamtempo, tribal mayhem, and ecstatic bliss.
wHAt: Each mix showcased is a unique snapshot or portrait of the dancefloor. No mixes are alike, no dancefloor is alike...and no set ever preplanned, recorded or mixed. This is raw.
hOw: As a consummate crate-digger his days are spent down the rabbit-holes of sound, constantly discovering emerging talent and the hidden gems of sonic possibility. With an ear for the exotic and a background in movement arts, his approach is through the emotive keyhole of the psyche, while unlocking the heart of the dancefloor community. As a percussionist who’s adventured extensively throughout the near and far east, his mixes span all tempos and all genres of electronic dance music. His selections are drenched in global idioms, accented with tribal motifs, and interwoven with relentlessly intoxicating rhythm and groove.
