Sappho was born and raised in the nerdery. Fed a steady diet of prog-rock and musical factoids, it’s no wonder that she is a consummate record collector.
She began her journey into the world of techno music in 1991 when she attended her first rave in Dallas, TX with, the most excellent Deee-Lite as the showstoppers. From that moment on, she was hooked. Throughout the 1990s, you could usually find her scouring record bins looking for gems and in front of the speakers at events from Portland to Vancouver BC.
Armed with her music collection, in 1999, Sappho made the jump from dancing party-goer to DJ. She’s a vinyl purist that always brings her love of forward thinking music to the dance floor.
Sappho is currently a member of the Alga-Rhythms collective in Portland who are striving to bring inclusive amazing never been there before music related experiences.
