DJ heyLove* grew up in the Bay Area surrounded by different cultures, ethnicities, & art. Influenced by this diversity she developed a love for variety, which is reflected in her taste for music.
Attracted to different rhythms and how they make the mind, body, and soul feel, heyLove* is naturally drawn to artists from the past and present like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Prince, Fela Kuti, Erykah Badu, Pharrell Williams, J Dilla, Kanye West, Drake, AtJazz, Masters at Work, Omar, & the Weeknd.
You'll hear soul, jazz, R&B, downtempo, broken beat, house, bossa nova, afro beat & hip-hop, pop/hits, and classics in her collection. "There should be no genre lines in music," heyLove* explains. Her mixes reflect a "music head" who appreciates the finer melodies in life.
DJ heyLove* has shared the stage with artists such as the Grammy award winning Robert Glasper Experiment, Esperanza Spalding, the Funky Meters, Emily King, DaM-FunK, & Mark Farina.
