Personal profile

Research interests

I am a PhD student in musicology working with Dr Justin Williams and Dr Florian Scheding. My thesis examines DJ culture and performance practice in Afro-diasporic electronic dance music (EDM), with case studies in Bristol, Outlook Festival (Croatia) and online. The project responds to the transformation of EDM over the last decade, where Black British genres such as drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, and grime have become enmeshed in a global discourse of ‘bass music’ and the power of low-frequency sound is foregrounded in musical practice and identity. The thesis historicises these patterns and logics in contemporary EDM and analyses the evolving nature of DJ performance in particular. This research contributes to areas including black sound studies, affect theory, and popular music studies. Other research interests include music & the internet and music in video games.
