stud1nt (Discwoman/#KUNQ) [NYC]
stud1nt is a multi-instrumental artist and DJ, born and bred in New York City. Informed by their training in jazz piano and guitar and early start sampling on turntables, their original productions and mixes live in-between the spontaneity of improvisation and acute harmonic and rhythmic composition. They create across genre with a penchant for the hypnotic low-end of club tracks and euphoric possibility of psychedelic riffs. A member of queer art collective #kunq, their sounds are also attentive to the politics of the body and sociohistorical context. stud1nt has presented their workshop on creative approaches to production at Vassar College, the New School, and Recess Art. Their work has been featured in Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, Rinse FM, the Fader, FACT Magazine, and MixMag. Notable performances include sets at Boiler Room New York, MoMA PS1, GHE20G0TH1K, and the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival at Output.
