BIOGRAPHY
Ariel A.K.A R.E.L. (because of how her name is pronounced) has always had a love for music. Even as a young child she knew she wanted to be a “famous singer”, she always loved to perform, which she did frequently. Ariel also had a deep connection with God while young and asked how to get saved at the age of three. “God has always been with me whether I liked it all the time or not,” she says. During her childhood and adolescence, Ariel studied voice, and guitar. But adolescence brought its own set of challenges. “I went into rebellion and I didn’t want God to fallow me all the time, I wanted to do whatever I wanted, and all the Christian kids were dorks to me”. So she went on a long detour. Ariel ditched everything she ever wanted living a careless life doing careless things. “During that time I had no self esteem, I didn’t think I was anybody”, so it was no surprised she left her passion for creating music behind. After a couple of years she got tired of her life not amounting to anything. “I always knew God had the best plan for my life, but I never wanted to exercise my part of the deal thinking life would suck without all the immoral things I was doing”. But one afternoon at her apartment she decided that God knew more then she did and if she couldn’t exercise a little self control then what kind of person was she really? So she decided (and that’s all it takes) to fallow Christ 100% and see what wild ride her life would take. During this process she got back in touch with what was really important to her. Through reading the Bible she realized that the voice and ability God had given her were gifts that were meant to be exercised. One of the few things that she brought out of her dark days was the skill of mixing records. “One day my friend Conchate suggested that I should learn how to mix records, and it was like a light bulb went off in my head”. This reminds her of Ephesians 1: 11, “In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will.” Ariel says that “God has taken a part of me and my past, and mixed it into his plan and worked it out for the absolute best”. After some time of not being engaged with music, Ariel was desperate, so she started small, spinning at a local church with a big youth group, “I wanted kids to see that you could be cool and fallow God”. Soon she was ready for bigger challenges and opportunities. I absolutely knew with no doubt that if I tried to get on 91FM I would be able to with no problem, I even wrote a letter to my friend stating this while venting about my frustration”. So one night she called the station and low and behold DJ Dvyne was there and was eager to here her demo because she spins Drum and Bass. Two weeks later she began her residency every Friday night playing old school jungle to the hardest stuff that’s ever been on the air waves (much less a Christian radio station which is sweet!). Mixing music produced by others has its rewards, but Ariel wanted the chance to express more of herself. She decided to begin producing her own music, launching a long and expensive pursuit of hardware to satisfy her desire to create an individual, and well rounded creation. So far she has produced several completely original songs. Currently she is part of an all girl DJ crew in Oklahoma city called, Iconoclast. It includes, Kelly Trance, Kylie, Karina, TidBit, and Clypso. They always have events in the metro s
