RYE (New Orleans, LA) – Whiskey Neat

In an industry driven by egos and flashy visuals, Rye reminds listeners that it’s about the music. Techno music, to be precise. This Louisiana native’s disarmingly self-deprecating personality masks a relentless work ethic, but this work ethic is evident in her sets. Rye follows an archetype of minimal techno that begins with a careful selection of instrumentals that crescendo into hard, percussive tracks that draw revelers to the dance floor.

Rye already claims an impressive resume in the techno community. As a resident DJ of the New Orleans-based Techno Club, she has made guest mixes for the Crowded Floor and the Beyønd podcasts. In addition, she has played at Beta Nightclub, a venue listed by Rolling Stone as one of the top nightclubs in the US. An expansive catalog of record labels make up Rye’s influences, including Up To Loft, Perception Dub, Akbal, Zeitlos, Melotherapy, Minim.all, and many more.

Outside of the music world, she boasts dual degrees in biology and chemistry, and intends to augment this background with a degree in chemical engineering. Look to Rye for a continuing upwards trajectory, in recognition as well as technical acumen.
