Since 2004, Mizeyesis has made her mark on Eastern US EDM (Electronic Dance Music) circuit. As a child she always had a passion for music, dance and art as it was a means to express herself and promote growth.
Attending specialized schools during her childhood which focused on artistic development of all sorts, even at one time in her life, Mizeyesis pursued a career in dance and studied with Alvin Ailey (NYC), Brooklyn Music School (NYC), Hartford Conservatory (CT), Greater Hartford Academy for the Arts (CT), Hartford City Ballet (CT) and other prestigious dance and arts schools in the Northeastern United States. Not to mention her background in being educated and experimenting in all forms of music, visual art, music theory and art history.
In the progression of her life, it was only natural for her to fall into realm of the growing US EDM scene in the 90’s, for her the music, the visuals, the excitement of it all was the sort of stimulation that she needed. It accumulated all aspects of artistic expression into one, and she is all about expression.
In 2000 after injuries and taking a break from any sort of artistic expression, it was finally in two years later 2002 that she purchased her first pair of decks, loving the fresh melodies and complex breaks of jungle, she went to work. Slowly gaining recognition by playing at many house parties in the Greater Hartford Area between 2003 it was in early 2004 she was approached by Dj Mighty Mouse to play her first formal gig in July 2004 at the legendary Municipal Cafe in Hartford for 100% High Octane. She received rave reviews for her debut set thus quickly becoming a dj with constant bookings for her unique sound and bold stage presence.
It was after that experience, in August of 2004 that another chance encounter with another fellow D+B dj in the area, Torrential would lead to a musical revolution in the City of Hartford. And this revolution was a monthly called THRESHOLD, in which dj’s, artists, mc’s, musician and breakbeat enthusiasts could have a place to call home in Connecticut which wasn’t know for such things at the time. Today, THRESHOLD Sound is still eldered by Mizeyesis and Torrential with an additional 20 individuals that make up this collective of outstanding people all with a passion to keep the flame for this music alive collaboratively and within their own personal endeavors. THRESHOLD is now known in New England and the Northeast for outstanding performances and shows which she has a hand in preparing in addition her own dj career. She’s always believed that everyone deserves a chance to get heard, and the growth to her own area with Electronic Music was also important.
In addition to being co-creator and resident of THRESHOLD related events, Mizeyesis has gone on to become a member of Awake Productions & Missed the Exit based out of Connecticut; DNBC, Basscamp Recordings & Team Ewok based out of New York; And NERU based out of Maine. In addition to being known for spinning and supporting jungle, drum and bass, you can catch her dropping dubstep, grime, uk funky, house, breakbeats, dub and other sounds associated with her love of breakbeat & bass culture. 2011 saw Mizeyesis reach new heights as she joined Hipstep Massive LLC, a chapter of Zulu Nation spearheaded by TC Izlam who’s mission is to educate mainstream pop culture on the origins and true cultures of electronic dance music in association with hip hop.
