Dee Diggs is a DJ, event curator  & organizer based in Boston, MA. She is unapologetically black, queer, & femme.

She is building and using her influence to create space for marginalized groups to express & organize themselves. Her aim is to sustain more spaces where these groups are valued and thanked by name for their contributions to humanity. (Thank the OG Black innovators of House & Techno! Thank you, Disco-era Queens & Queers alike for the theatrics & fanfare of nightlife as we know it!)

She is an organizer with Boston’s own femme/queer music tech collective, Evlv Tech  & promotes monthly events with the electro/hip-hop mash-up freak show known as Rare Footage Boston, as well as a Resident DJ at Shake Boston. Her sound is on the A-side, grounded & self-referential, & on the the B-side, a dreamy and foreign pursuit.

The Dee Diggs experience is the warm vibe that radiates through the room as the booth and the dance floor become one deep in the mix

​earthaclit (Cierra Michele Peters) is a native Bostonian artist. as a performance artist, under the moniker earthaclit, she uses electronic music, video and spoken word to foster meaningful conversations around diasporic longings + cultural disruption. as a Caribbean/American black femme positioned at the intersection of multiple cultural and national identities, she believes in the power of music and its embodied experience as a means to expand discourse and go places traditional activism does not.

she’s also a member of evlv tech, a community forum and art collective aimed at creating space for femme-identified and nonbinary people in music technology.
