Erin E brings an ear for unique sounds to her energetic and genre-bending dj sets. Integrating global gems with sometimes heavy, sometimes heavenly percussive and melodic force, she strips back dance music to something we all can relate to. Constantly searching for the essence of the sound – be it deep & dub techno, electronic folklore, house or beyond- she cultivates a bassy dancefloor (and headphone) experience that transcends stereotype.
She is currently working on an ongoing series of place-based ‘immersive’ mixes, created and performed in wild spaces alone or with a very small crew of intimate listeners.
Playing & sampling her original live native american flute, didjeridoo, shakers and myriad of trinkets, she sneaks authentic sound into unexpected places.
Based in Santa Fe, NM, Erin E loves, above all, creating the space for a transformative, positive experience through music and creative community.
