About this event

Ash Lauryn (Underground & Black, NTS Radio) is coming back to Rozz-Tox for a 5hr deejay set <3

We discovered Ash through NTS radio a few years back, listening to her Underground & Black show, which immediately became a staple show to play in the cafe.

Less than a Year later we drove to Detroit for Movement Festival and caught her U&B party at a lil bar called Mix Bricktown. That weekend was a lot of fun, but this was def a stand-out party. We've been supporters ever since, and had the honor of presenting her in Rock Island a few months after meeting her at Movement. It all feels like a dream from ages ago.

This lady is a BIG DEAL, don't sleep on experiencing her deejay set in the intimate setting of Rozz-Tox-- a one-of-a-kind event.

PAY WHAT YOU CAN - must RSVP (60 person capacity)

all ages, 8pm-1am

Bio:

Ash Lauryn balances between two worlds, with an old-school house-head foundation and a digital age suaveness, blending her skills as a deejay, writer, curator, and radio host to champion black dance music. Discovering her passion for music in her native Detroit, she was inspired to start deejaying in her current residence Atlanta, taking inspiration from the legendary Kai Alce of NDATL and Vicki Powell. After seeing a gap in representation for Black millennials in electronic music, she started her blog Underground and Black, which has since grown into a wide-ranging platform covering her annual Movement Festival party, monthly NTS show, and RA podcast of the same name.

Her passion for music has led her across the globe, from her residencies in Atlanta, Expressions, and Deep South, to gigs at Nowadays in New York, Tresor Berlin, and Printworks London. She’s played with musicians such as Joe Claussell, Theo Parrish, Larry Heard, and Moodymann, and for festivals such as Afropunk, Dimensions, and Flow Festival Helsinki. Her writing has appeared in The Face Magazine, Mixmag, and Resident Advisor, and she recently served as a guest editor for Beatportal. She’s interviewed legends such as Robert Hood and Honey Dijon and recently curated a panel for Red Bull Arts in conversation with Waajeed and Cornelius Harris of Underground Resistance.

Lately, Ash was nominated for DJ of the Year at the 2021 Bembe DJ Awards and participated in Virgil Abloh’s Off-White SS21 “Imaginary TV” platform. She’s currently working on music production with her partner Stefan Ringer, and they released their first project together, the Expressions EP, in August of 2020. You can follow her at @ash_lauryn_ on Instagram and Twitter.
