Bottom Forty

Bottom Forty is a mirror ball in New York, a basement in Chicago, a cruise in L.A. and a night in the desert.

Exclusive Mix 025: Hyasynth

Hyasynth (aka Karen Baskett) fell in love with records at a young age, and her obsession with music has manifested itself in several forms. A professional dancer and instructor, her sense of music has been called “innate and seemingly effortless” while her mixing is always precise.

Karen began as a DJ in 2000 while living in New York City pursuing her Broadway dreams. She moved to Seattle in 2004 and started an all-female DJ weekly residency at See Sound Lounge called ‘Grace’, then gained more exposure to the local scene by booking gigs at major venues in Seattle and Portland. She joined the De La Crème crew in 2006, played the Bellingham Electronic Music Festival in 2008, and has since been a frequent headlining guest at favorite Seattle spots such as Flammable Sundays, the Train Car House Party, Electric Tea Garden, Q, and The Woods.

Hyasynth has released several mixes, opened for legends such as Doc Martin, Colette, Ben Watt, Rick Preston, and Andrew Riley, and has lost countless calories dancing her heart out behind the decks during her energetic sets.
