Lauren Taylor, aka Korra The Kid, is a Bellingham resident who frequents Seattle to perform at various venues in the area. After sharing the stage with big name artists such as Kll Smth, Holly, and Truth, Lauren is DJ who has become fluent in the many genres of underground bass. Korra the Kid is a name that is synonymous with clean transitions, expert song selection, and unique mash ups. Having mixed for over four years and performed at prestigious venues such as Kremwerk, Q Nightclub, and The Wild Buffalo, it is clear her mixing style is the product of practice and an understanding of the underground music scene.
What have you been up to?
I was lucky enough to play 5 shows last month in both Bellingham and Seattle! Somehow in the last 2 months my bookings have grown exponentially, which is awesome, but also stressful! Most of this stress has been from transitioning from my trusty Traktor s4 over to CDJS. Playing at Q Nightclub opening up for Holly and Wick-it the Investigator and playing the Wild Buff for the first time were definitely a highlights.
How and where did you record your mix?
I recorded this mix in my room with my s4, a macbook pro, and traktor.
Tell us a bit about the mix!
have been playing live quite a bit lately so I have to make sure my sets can keep a crowd moving. This set is filled with some of my favorite songs that don’t quite have the ability to rock a club. Relaxing drum and bass, my favorite!!
What are you up to next?
I am playing a Charity show in Seattle for Mary’s Place on the 23rd which I am very excited about! Then, hopefully, mastering CDJs.Thanks for having me making this mix was super fun :)
