Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey! My name is hey! dw, I’m a DJ and plays drums at the same time, kinda like Joan Jett meets EDM.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
As a drummer, I’m all about percussion. I love deep house and anything bouncy that makes your body want to move. My first and foremost goal when writing is: ‘can I dance to it?’
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I am gearing up to go on tour with Mystery Skulls across the states. My live performance are pretty much the squirt emoji + lighting, it’s a high-energy, BIG sweaty dance party.
