Beta Librae: The ‘Ransom Note’ Mix
Like her namesake, Brooklyn-based DJ and producer Beta Librae has shone brighter than ever over the last couple of years.
Taking her moniker from the brightest star in the zodiac constellation of Libra, she cut her teeth DJing regularly at Bossa Nova Civic Club after moving to Brooklyn from her home town of Spring Hill in Kansas.
It was at this club that she also started her Technofeminism parties alongside friend, fellow DJ and Discwoman co-founder Umfang, a monthly event that showcases emerging talent, and now she can also be found in the booth for Nowadays as a resident.
Her skills extend to production, with her first release landing on the ever on point 1080p back in 2015, followed by two more albums for Lillerne Tape Club and Anthony Naples and Jenny Slattery’s Incensio, as well as a couple of EPs for Physical Therapy's Allergy Season. Also lending her touch on the remix for Yaeji in 2018, her most recent remix effort, of Cleveland's Gamma, is about to see a release on Amsterdam's Kalahari Oyster Cult.
