Introduced to electronic dance music over thirteen years ago, Corcyra's musical background extends from classical training to the underground metro DC sound, expressing a love and energy only felt through her modern and edgy breaks. Formally stepping behind turntables in 2005, Corcyra has led her crowds from the boundaries of deep progressive to a driving peak hour, and back with a funkier, techy breakbeat style.
Currently residing in Norfolk, Virginia, Corcyra's musical dedication and involvement with the renaissance of the local culture has not only ranked her among the top local underground talent, but has also opened countless opportunities to expand her personal music experience as well as direct involvement with many aspects of the culture. Current projects include the rebirth of Elemental, a DC-based collective geared towards developing foundations and providing resources to fresh dj talent, and The Solace, a Norfolk-based group focusing on the revitalization of the underground event culture. Corcyra currently leads the conception of Hampton Roads Underground, a movement towards furthering the electronic music culture.
2009 has proven to be an expansive year for Corcyra, with 2010 bringing opportunities on several different levels. Anticipating the release of her next mix, a follow-up to her hit, Immoveo, Corcyra eagerly awaits hefty studio time in the upcoming year, to keep bringin' you the funkiest, crunchiest, dirtiest breakbeat around.
"Corcyra, ... has always been a fountain of creativity, positive energy, and love for breaks and dance music. The reason I mention these things first is that they all seem to embody her spirit and they pour out of the speakers when she spins. To know her is to love her and to hear her play is to dance your ass off."
