DJ Diaspora started buying records in her home town Chicago, inspired by the underground deep house parties there in the early 90s. After moving to the UK for 6 months, she was blown away by West London's "broken beat" scene, and knew her mission as a DJ-- to share broken beat, and its influences, with the US. While DJing for 8 years in NYC, DJ Diaspora developed her eclectic blend of broken beat with Afro-beat, deep house, Brazilian jazz, jungle/drum n bass, nujazz, and other dance, jazz, and experimental music, with a focus on the African diaspora (which most of broken beat's UK originators are part of). DJ Diaspora has been sharing this music with DC via her all-vinyl sets since moving there in 2013.
