MEET THE DJS
Yoalli or DJ Volcán was born and raised in Puebla, Mexico. They have been spinning records with Chulita Vinyl Club in Austin, Texas since 2016. They have played records in Mexico City, Puebla, New York, and Madrid, among other places in the U.S. They collect and spin Latinamerican sounds, but also, sixties psychedelic music and many other genres from the world.
Katharine Hepburn’s taste is rooted in classic selections, always serving deep grooves and disco dives to relax your mind and free your body. Like the original Hollywood diamond in the rough, be prepared to be charmed with her balance of edgy cuts and vinyl soaked in soul.
Nunya (fka Nunita Applebum) is a DJ, vinyl lover, and record shop owner from Chicago. When not running Shady Rest Vintage and Vinyl, she spins at various venues around Chicago. Her tastes are all over the places, so expect the unexpected with her set!
With a love for DJing that began in grade school when using two tape decks to spin basement parties, TREW’s main aim is to weave a common thread through seemingly disparate genres. Drawing inspiration from the early 1980s NYC art/music world, he believes no genre is off limits, no collaboration too outlandish.
While not DJing he co-owns Ground Lift Media - a digital marketing company, is 1/2 of the DJ/Production duo Altered Tapes, owns and operates Heat Rock Records, and is deep into vinyl excavation having amassed thousands of rare Soul, Funk, Disco, & Jazz records. A hobby/obsession he shares with the world via his Miyagi Records Shop.
