Evie : Variety Mix
I’m a Seattle native, born and raised by some very hip parents who had me listening to everything from Vangelis, to Queen Latifah, to Dead Can Dance. Which, obviously, was the inception of my never-ending mission to find and absorb the latest aurally pleasurable track.
I started volunteering as a DJ and Programming Assistant to Michele Myers circa 2004 -- working as the Friday night sidekick for the last 9 years off and on. I am a contributor to the brilliant “Electronic Innovators” audio documentary, which you can listen to here. And I’ve also worked on the production side of countless lovely KEXP events, pledge drives, filled in what feels like a million playlists for multiple on-air DJ’s, searched through the library for obscure vinyl, and loved every minute of it! This station is a special place, run by some of the warmest and most inspiring people I’ve ever met. As far as MY music goes...you can expect to hear lots of my all-time-favorites during my shows, including but absolutely not limited to: Chemical Brothers, Bjork, Talking Heads, Tame Impala, Blockhead, Jack White in all forms, Frightened Rabbit, Wu-Tang, The National, Daft Punk, IamamIwhoamI, Doves, Outkast, DJ Shadow, Fugazi, Massive Attack, De La Soul, Elbow, The Black Keys, Cat Power, Velvet Underground, Metronomy, Faithless, Gus Gus, DJ Krush, Beck, Tom Vek, anything from Dan the Automator, anything off the brilliant DFA label, almost anything off the brilliant Ed Banger label, and the occasional Paul Simon. (Because there ain’t no shame in my Graceland game).
I love to make new friends and interact with KEXP supporters, and I most definitely want to hear what YOU want to hear. Please do follow me -- @evieluxx on both twitter and instagram, and on facebook at www.facebook.com/evieluxx.
