As a dancer, she currently focuses on house, waacking and hustle dance styles. As a DJ, she is constantly digging through music, its history, and correlating its connections with street dance. She’s currently part of various collectives that share her philosophy on connection and creating such as Lost is Found, T.O. Hustle Sessions, Brighter Days, and Footprints.
DJ GENERAL ECLECTIC
DJ General Eclectic takes you all over the musical map and beyond the traditional barriers of rhythm, sound and movement. He communicates his love of music on both digital and analogue platforms but is most at home snuggled up closely to a stack of vintage vinyl. Very few can connect the dots like he can, thats why you can find him DJing everything from upscale corporate events to the most obscure of underground jams. Simply put, his knowledge of music and ability to weave different genres together are legendary. Now in his 2nd decade of DJing, DJGE is more in the middle of the music than ever before.
The founder of Astral Projections and co-founder of Cosmic Resonance Records
