PlayPlay (Knightwerk/ Heavy) is a NYC-based, NC-raised DJ, producer, teacher, and music scholar. In January, they debuted their club EP release “It’s Only 3am” on Knightwerk Records, and have since released music on labels such as Worst Behavior and Cybersonic LA. As both a DJ and producer, PlayPlay combines their penchant for percussion (particularly breaks) and heavy bass with nostalgic hip-hop and house samples. Their music is inspired by what they grew up listening to - namely jungle, DnB, breakbeat hardcore, Baltimore club, industrial, jock jams, 90s club anthems and hard house. Using a combination of samples and hardware synthesizers to create everything from unearthly basslines to high-octane acid/industrial sounds, PlayPlay makes energetic music that is both familiar and hard to pin down. While PlayPlay has been DJing for over a decade now, their ultimate goal is still simply to be in constant musical conversation with everyone on the dancefloor, connecting through shared nostalgia, bass and sweat.



PlayPlay is also a music scholar and activist interested in local music scenes, dance floor dynamics, queer theory, and media studies. They have been teaching DJing and music production for several years, most recently through the UNC-Chapel Hill Music Department and Building Beats. With a particular investment in mentoring women and gender non-conforming DJs / producers, PlayPlay has held workshops at festivals such as Moogfest, for organizations such as Girls Rock NC, and at various colleges & universities. PlayPlay is currently an artist-in-residence at Flux Factory, a Queens-based gallery, where they are working on a soundscape installation focusing on queer resilience in club music.
