Today’s 6AM Guest Mix comes from a Chicago-based artist we not only respect for her work as an artist and promoter, but consider a personal friend and one of the key figures in pushing techno in Chicago throughout the last several years.
Brenda began DJing in 2013 and has quickly risen to become one of Chicago’s best techno talents. She is lead A&R for Format Recordings, resident DJ and co-producer of their weekly techno podcast series, Format.FM, and joint curator of the Format underground warehouse event series.
A classically trained pianist and saxophonist, her expansive understanding of structure and rhythm allow her to draw inspiration from all kinds of music, from soulful jazz to dark, gritty drum and bass. Brenda’s talent for laying down everything from pulsing ethereal beats to jackin’ stompers demonstrate her versatility all while maintaining consistent themes of darker, harder techno.
