Music: DJ Lychee
As as DJ, my goal is to use music as a tool to build a distinct atmosphere and to create connections amidst dancers over shared emotional experience. I especially love it when I can bring glimmers of sentimentality into a harsher musical narrative, blending hints of melody and vocals into raw techno assaults. I've experienced a lot of personal transformation on the dancefloor, and if I can replicate that for even one person on a level large or small in any given set, I consider it a success.
Currently, my primary music project/affiliation is Spontaneous Affinity, a monthly mix and interview series and a flexible platform for collaboration on events and beyond. I'm also a monthly resident at Distrikt1 at Bossa Nova Civic Club in Brooklyn alongside Ne/Re/A. My latest mixes can be found on Soundcloud.
I got my start as a radio DJ for WMFO, Tufts' college radio station, in 2007. Since starting to play out in 2012, I've been featured in Magnetic Magazine, Boston's Weekly Dig (2013, 2016), and the Boston Globe and played alongside artists like Objekt, Aurora Halal, Rrose, Legowelt, Claude Young, and Matrixxman.
In addition to playing out, I've organized DJ/producer skillshare events and taught DJ workshops and curated a speaker event about inclusivity in music technology. I co-founded, co-organized, and was a resident DJ at Boston's VISCERAL from December 2016 through September 2017.
