A DJ since 1997, and more recently as a songwriter, she defines her sound through rich chord progressions, heavy beats and thick textures. From hip hop and dub/reggae, to rare funk and soul, this taste-maker brings her new blends from Austin, TX all the way up to Brooklyn, NY. In 2003, she formed HandinHand with partner Mike Genato. As shown by the songs ‘Smooth Love’ and collaborations with singer/songwriters, this fusion project puts an emphasis on flowing melodies, rich harmonies and lyrics that get at the human psyche, while keeping the beats heavy enough for head nodders around the globe. Also check out any of the 10+ eclectic DJ mixes on unemployablenyc.com and visit her Myspace page where you can subscribe (for free) to her podcast. The new album from HandinHand is titled Green Streets and it will be available soon. We'll mos def keep everyone posted. Until then, enjoy this first of ten free mixes. Download, share, enjoy...
