Tech Chase- Dystopia
Growing up in Miami, FL was the catalyst for Tech Chase’s journey as an artist. The city breathed life into him. He was surrounded by electronic music throughout his entire childhood and he discovered that this type of music made him feel alive. Classic EDM acts like Krewella, Knife Party, and Adventure Club played massive roles in shaping his sound and taste. His teen years were filled with joy and enthusiasm that he channeled toward DJing and making music that allowed him to embrace his emotions. As time went on though, anxiety and stress blocked his ability to achieve his ambitions. After experiencing a very dark and tumultuous 2020, Tech Chase emerged from the darkness with confidence and clarity around his mission as an artist. He describes this mission as: “A way to help myself and others stay true to ourselves, embrace our emotions, and know it is okay to feel. No matter what those emotions may be. Everyone deserves to know that expressing your true, authentic feelings and being yourself is what you are meant to do. That is what Tech Chase is all about.”
