Bio

Dream Circle is an electronic/world/hip-hop band formed in
Brooklyn in 2011 by Katy Walker & Azusu. The duo is made up of Katy
Walker (lead vocals, keys, production) and Azusu (djembe, production).
Their music is a spiritualized genre-bending journey into electronic,
house, hip-hop, dub reggae and African music. Walker, who is originally
from Austin, TX, met Mejia, the second generation Dominican and Bronx,
NY native, while producing a music video and playing for another band.

Their debut album LOST ART was released in 2013 on Unemployable
Music, their indie label. The album’s stand out tracks are “So Many
Things”, “School of Life”, “The Hurricane” and the dub reggae infused
“Original”. On their first album, they also collaborated with
vocalist Nikkie Bliss (who performs with the band),
multi-instrumentalist Ben Zwerin who tours with Anjelique Kidjo,  rapper
Johnny Voltik and vocalist Stephanie Morrillo.


“So Many Things” (The Remixes) released July 2014 via Unemployable
Music features deep house remixes by OP! (I Love Vinyl/Dubspot) &
Doctrations from Rotterdam, Netherlands and features a spaced-out hip-hop remix by A-frillz
that drew a comparison to Flying Lotus. Whether you’re a fan of Dream
Circle or electronic music in general from the U.K, Canada and even
Estonia, So Many Things (The Remixes) is has a truly international sound
that’s good for both chilling and dancing.


“I am extremely grateful to have received these messages of universal
love and consciousness,” says Azusu a about their music. “It may sound
esoteric, but music is magical. It doesn’t come from a place that we
typically have access to unless we open ourselves up. We did just that
and received this music. We wanted it to uplift people and have a
vibratory effect on them. It’s not casual listening, but active
listening,” he adds.


The band is currently writing and recording their second LP,
tentatively titled “Twin Souls” and will be recording in the studio for
the next few months.  They perform as a trio periodically in the NYC
area.


Dream Circle was formed in 2011 and consists of band members Katy Walker (lead vocals, keys, production) and Joel Mejia (drums, production). The duo are engaged and currently reside in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Walker, who is originally from Austin,TX, met Mejia, the second generation Dominican and Bronx, NY native, while producing a music video and playing for another band (formerly known as My M.O.). Their chemistry was inevitable, and the two were compelled to collaborate together after the band parted ways.


“I am extremely grateful to have received these messages of universal love and consciousness,” says Mejia about their first collection LOST ART. “It may sound esoteric, but music is magical. It doesn’t come from a place that we typically have access to unless we open ourselves up. We did just that and received this music. We wanted it to uplift people and have a vibratory effect on them. It’s not casual listening, but active listening,” he adds.
