Born and raised in Jamaica, Dion McKenzie aka TYGAPAW is a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary artist, DJ and producer. TYGAPAW infuses her Jamaican ancestry into deeply lush beats and mixes that are diverse and experimental sonic representations of her life, experiences and struggles. TYGAPAW is founder and curator of Fake Accent, a monthly queer club night that is host to an eclectic and open-minded community. This year TYGAPAW saw the release of her debut EP, Love Thyself, with tracks that move from baile funk and swelling synth work to New York vogue and Baltimore club.
