So much underground talent in Seattle, and our local treasures are many. One of the shiniest is DJ Hyasynth, member of the De La Creme posse and frequent guest at Flammable Sundays, Q, Electric Tea Garden, and anywhere else where house music is played. A dancer and instructor, her sense of music is natural and seemingly effortless, and her mixing is always en pointe.
Hyasynth, aka Karen, is respected as headliner and style maker, bringing a unique voice to house music. Here’s a set she did for Robby Clark’s Emerald City Brunch internet radio show, which recently accompanied me on a desert journey, but is at home pretty much anywhere:
And another mix on Soundcloud (free download) from last summer, which we loved so much we played it in our Burning Man camp even in her absence. That last track, “Gain on Top” just gives me the shivers.
