SUBTRONIC END: Hyasynth Guestmix Feb. 27, 2016

Local DJ Hyasynth guest-mixes on Saturday night with Zach

February 29, 2016

It was a pleasure to have Hyasynth back in the studio last weekend. Here's a little bit about her...

Hyasynth (aka Karen O’Branovich) fell in love with records at a young age and her obsession with music has manifested itself in several forms.  A professional dancer and instructor by trade, her sense of rhythm has been called “innate and seemingly effortless” while her mixing is always precise.

Karen began as a DJ in 2000 while living in New York City pursuing her Broadway dreams. She moved to Seattle in 2004 and started an all-female DJ weekly residency at See Sound Lounge called ‘Grace’ with Erin O’Connor-Drew, then gained more exposure to the local scene by booking gigs at major venues in Seattle and Portland.  She joined Karl Kamakahi as a member of the De La Crème crew in 2006, which has held several residencies over the years.  Karen played the Bellingham Electronic Music Festival in 2008 and has been a frequent headlining guest at favorite Seattle spots such as Flammable Sundays (Rebar), Train Car House Party, Electric Tea Garden, Q, The Woods, Kremwerk, and Monkey Loft.  Hyasynth has released several mixes, opened for legends such as Doc Martin, Colette, Ben Watt, Rick Preston and Andrew Riley and is continually inspired by Seattle’s local talent. She is now a proud member of the Bottom Forty crew, which hosts 2nd’ Saturdays at Kremwerk. There you’ll find her, dancing her heart out! 

Keep up with her DJ sets on Mixcloud.
