Brooklyn-based DJ/producer ILLEXXANDRA (http://illexxandra.com) brings a consistently fun party vibe, drawing from the worlds of funk, UK future sound, global bass, electro swing, and classic club culture. Her sets draw you in with innocent joy, smack you around with raw ferocity, and then set you down gently with deep musical knowledge. She’ll kill it with an hour of bangers, or take you on a five-hour journey into sound.
ILLEXXANDRA has played all over the world, from the East Coast’s best underground parties (Thunder Gumbo, House of Yes, Gemini & Scorpio, BangOn, Winkel & Balktick, Bangarang, No Man’s Land, the JunXion), to major international venues (including The Room in Tokyo; Sound Channel and Union in Osaka; the Button Factory in Dublin; Club Love, the McKittrick Hotel, Pacha, and APT in NYC; the Rock & Roll Hotel and Tropicalia in DC; the Parish in Austin; 1015 Folsom, DNA Lounge, the Elbo Room, and Public Works in San Francisco; King King, The Echo, and El Cid in LA; the Freakeasy in Chicago; Club Popozuda afterparty for Notting Hill Carnival in London among many others), and festivals (SXSW, Gathering of the Vibes, Long Beach Funk Festival, and the ISA World Surfing Games in Costa Rica).
