Mister Zero is a DJ/producer from New Jersey. Her first forays into DJ culture were the mixtapes and remixes that she started making on cassette while she was in her teens. She experimented with cutting and rearranging music at the same time that she began to discover the culture of dance music. She moved to Massachusetts in 1998 and ran a series of seasonal and weekly parties over the past ten years with her DJ partner, Steamy Brown. After a stint in Boston studying audio engineering and production, she finds herself back playing seasonal parties that focus on the community spirit on the dancefloor. Her parties attract diverse crowds that include performance artists, live drummers, flaggers, and old school house heads.
“DJing is more than playing great records for people or creating a fun party, it is about creating community that reflects our culture. We need to hear it, dance to it, and in times of joy or crisis we turn to music to lift us up.”
