In an industry driven by egos and flashy visuals, Rye reminds listeners that it’s about the music. Techno music, to be precise. This Louisiana native’s disarmingly self-deprecating personality masks a relentless work ethic, but this work ethic is evident in her sets. Rye follows an archetype of minimal techno that begins with a careful selection of instrumentals that crescendo into hard, percussive tracks that draw revelers to the dance floor. Rye already claims an impressive resume in the techno community. As a resident DJ of the New Orleans-based Techno Club, she has made guest mixes for the Crowded Floor and the Beyønd podcasts. In addition, she has played at Beta Nightclub, a venue listed by Rolling Stone as one of the top nightclubs in the US.
