This week, we’re kicking off a new spotlight series spotlighting some of the excellent up-and-coming electronic music artists, DJs, and producers who have gone through Dubspot recently and are on the move. Our roundup this week features a diverse group of young and rising producers and performers including Tyeze, Zavvi, Nebizha, 81Neutronz, and Meketrefe.
Brooklyn-based DJ/producer Tyeze offers a collection of expertly-crafted remixes, blends, and DJ mixes informed by a plethora of current dance music styles ranging from global bass, moombahton, and dubstep to Jersey club and future bass.
Born in California, raised in Reno, schooled in Canada, and now based in Brooklyn after a stint teaching in South America, Teagan Tyeze has been steadily building momentum as a DJ and producer. When she performs she delivers a unique, intricately-woven sound spectrum integrated with an unforgettable, interactive exchange with her audience. She plays deep bass, dropping a plethora of genres from future bass, hip hop, dancehall, dubstep, glitch hop, electro, moombahton, cumbia, and more, a tango of many different spices mingling. Teagan studied electronic music production at Dubspot and has releases and collaborations dropping soon.
Zavi Harman is a 20-year-old electronic music producer, musician, and writer from Richmond, Virginia, currently based in New York City. Zavi was a dedicated guitarist in high school but after being exposed to Ableton Live during his freshman year of college, he decided to take the next step in his music: Zavi took a year off from college and moved to New York to attend Dubspot and take the DJ / Producer Master Program.
Zavi immersed himself in his studies at Dubspot, primarily the Ableton Certificate Program, as well as additional courses and workshops from the Sound Design, Music Foundations, Mixing & Mastering, and DJ programs. Zavi also took advantage of Dubspot’s three-month internship program in the tech department. Outside of Dubspot, Zavi enjoys networking in New York City’s electronic music scene and working with Dope on Plastic, an excellent blog that promotes the underground electronic music scene. He wrote a show review on Bass Squad and Interstellar Pig’s summer opening party at club Drom, which included an interview with the notable DJ duo Flosstradamus. Recently Zavi passed the Logic Pro 9 Level 2 Certification Exam and has become an Apple Certified User of the software; he is also hoping to explore Reason and Pro Tools in the near future.
Zavi will be returning to Richmond this fall to pursue a degree in Music Business at Virginia Commonwealth University. Taking the skills learned from Daniel Wyatt (Mixing & Mastering), Zavi is also looking forward to starting his new internship at Red Amp Audio recording studio in Richmond. After a year of training at Dubspot, Zavi is more than ready to put his skills into practice through producing and performing in the mid-Atlantic music scene.
