ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Since 2014, Farrah Flosscett continues to demonstrate why she’s considered a staple in Washington, DC’s DJ scene. After winning a nationwide female DJ battle in 2020, she then acquired a live radio station residency on WHUR's 96.3FM, it’s no wonder Sean "Diddy" Combs chose her as one of 2017’s "Deleon 100" influencers. And in summer 2020, Rita's Malt recruited Flosscett to be a Beverage Influencer for their “Do You” campaign. Still early in her career, she has already been recruited to play for Miami’s Art Basel 2017-2020 & Austin’s SXSW 2018-2019, as well as a recurring guest DJ in NYC, LA, and Austin. She also had the opportunity to perform for the massive Open House festival in Trinidad and Tobago, Broccoli City Festival, DC Capital Pride, Mayor Browser’s 5K Her Story Run and National Cannabis Festival.
In addition to being the cofounder of her own collective, "Throwing Shade" - an event formulated with the sole purpose to bring the missing future rnb and rare hip hop sound element to DC via nonconforming venue spaces, she then brought that same event outside of Washington DC to Brooklyn NY to partner with Miami art Basel affiliates F.A.M.E. for a Throwing Shade In Brooklyn in 2019.
She has also grown her supporting act catalog by performing on stage beside such artists as Ludacris, Brandy, Wale, Action Bronson, Lion Babe, Method Man, Jazzy Jeff and Estelle. And along with those successes, came two live radio shows where she gave her listeners a weekly DJ performance slot at both the Hong Kong/DC based Eaton Workshop and Full Service Radio.
Her musical history story sparks from her father's own DJ roots. And therefore holds a major part of her passions to always attempt cohesive sound jumps inhabiting a blend of Funk, Soulful House, Future Beats, R&B, Afrobeats, Dancehall, Nu Disco, Hip Hop and Classics.
Farrah is inspired by inspiring. She wants to inspire, that warm feeling, that cool feeling, that nostalgic moment, that sweat it all out, that inner sexy, that jump in the crowd, that beat of the drum mind manipulation. She wants to be the sound giver and not taker of it all / to all. No boxes, no labels. That's the inspiration that makes her do her music magic.
