BIOGRAPHY
Tandra ventured on a musical journey that, at first, had her Dj'ing to impress the boys. This joy grew into a 10 yr love affair that needed to evolve.

A B.Sc. in Physics helped Lytes wrap her head around the basic principles of recording and after 5 yrs in the Toronto independent hip/hop and reggae scene, traded in her cushy iinstructors job and winter boots for guiness and red bull on the beach! Yep, you could say she migrated to Jamaica for a more practical industry experience!!

'Lytes' currently mixes for Toots Hibbert, Robert Livingston (Shaggy and various Bigyard artists included), Clive Hunt and a variety of dancehall/reggae producers and artists including Richie Stephens, Maxi Priest, Richie Spice, Blacker, Macka Diamond, Red Rose, Lady Saw, Voicemail, TOk just to name a few.

'Coming to Jamaica has completely changed my perspective of the music industry as a whole', says Tandra. 'This is like any other New York for hip hop or London for Garage music. It's a place where I get to express my talents in a genre that's really quite specific and entrenched in tradition.' Working along side such great engineers and producers like Fat Eyes producers/engineers Lynford 'Fatta' Marshall and Collin 'Bulby' York, Erol Brown, Shane Brown, Sam Weller, Steven Stanley, Steely and Cleevy and Sly & Robbie have completely imspired a different type of work ethic for a different kind of female engineer.

Did we forget to mention she's probably the only *female
  • engineer on the island working at such a professional level? Lytes is poised to make alot of noise in this industry and across the globe in the very near future. You can already hear her work on two of Bigyard's Riddim - Vintage and Solomon.
  • Engineering is her passion, mixing is her joy.
