Chicago born and raised dj/producer within the ranks of the underground house/techno scene.
Art and music always being a priority and focus, she learned to play the violin at age 7. Fusing the sound of an electric violin in her production, makes her production hauntingly beautiful and melodic. Learning the violin and music at a young age, fostered her to compose music and leaving room for interest to learn piano as well as percussion. Percussion instruments and string elements are very prevalent in her productions with rolling drum sounds and changes to the added beauty of strings. Blu has tracks on various labels: Risky Business Records, Opium Recordings, MTZ Records, Vested, Flashmob Records, AfterDark Recordings, Bottomless, Invaded, Orange Earth Recordings, Krunch Audio, Phunk Junk Recordings, Tru Musica, Craft Underground and Bassment Tapes.

With this in mind, exposing various Chicago artists to the mixer has been not only challenging, but rewarding.
