Now a graduate of The International Academy of Design and Technology for Digital Media and Recording Arts, her original production spans broad dance floor territory, from techno, deep house to experimental electronica. Finding the balance between light and dark with both her solo work and as Slumber with her friend Amber Cox has kept her inspired and able to express both arrays of emotions through her sound.

A New York native, he has produced events internationally, leading teams from all over the world to create a haptic and participatory space that moves people, causing a reaction, and instigating change.
Fueled by an innate determination, drive, and passion, with attuned intuition applied to both his music and life, West African native AMÉMÉ channels his cultural roots and ancestry into everything he does.
