This week WERD. welcomes a close homie from Berlin, travelling to visit our great city. He throws events all around Germany, from Berlin to Hamburg to Saarbrucken, and he knows how to light up the room.
A homie in the true sense, let's welcome this Ausländer (foreigner) to SF with open arms and show him what makes San Francisco tick.
KC WRAY (Berlin, FRIENDS)
Born in St. Louis MO, in the United States KC Wray grew up in a very ethnically diverse family which shaped his current musical tastes. From a young age, KC Wray was attracted to dance music due to its high energy and positive vibes. Due to his home town's relatively close proximity to Chicago, KC Wray discovered House music from a very young age. This influence eventually led KC Wray to stepping behind the decks.
KC Wray is known for his eclectic selection, energetic playing style and the ability to read and react to a crowd. This ability to connect with the audience and draw them in is a rarity in today's world of pre-planned DJ sets. KC Wray believes that a DJ is there to introduce an audience to new sounds and is there to be a trend setter not a trend follower. This is what has propelled KC Wray to the top of his game and has won him the attention and respect from many well known DJ's/Producers around the world.
In 2016 KC Wray took a big step forward by moving to Berlin, Germany to further explore his musical career. Within one year of being in Berlin KC Wray racked up two residencies and a position as a booking manager for Gloria Stages in Saarbrücken Germany. Playing multiple times a week in Berlin has proven KC Wrays sound and unique style is in high demand.
KC Wray has played alongside Kevin Knapp (Hot Creations), Dilby (Mother Recordings), Sam Divine (Defected), Sonny Fodera (Defected), Robosonic (Mother Recordings), Mat.Joe (Hot Creations), Barber (Suara) and many more.
