Ash Lauryn is a DJ, Writer, and Radio Host hailing from Detroit, MI who is currently based in Atlanta, GA. Ash specializes in underground dance music and says most of her influence stems from her roots back home in Detroit. As an active member of the dance music community for over a decade, she hosts her own event series alongside Stefan Ringer called Expressions and is currently a resident DJ with Atlanta’s Deep South collective. In addition, Ash run’s a blog called “Underground & Black”, which shares the title with her monthly NTS radio show- the blog explores her experiences as a black woman and rising DJ on the dance music scene. Ash also hosts events under the Underground & Black moniker, with the inaugural edition taking place in NYC at Bossa Nova Civic Club, and the second to take place in Detroit during Movement Festival Weekend 2019.
Ash has quickly and firmly established her career as a DJ and has successfully headlined gigs in NYC, Berlin, London, Paris, and beyond. She has also shared bills with legendary acts such as Joe Claussell, Marcellus Pittman, Chez Damier, and Kai Alcè, to name a few. With 3 Europe tours under her belt, Ash made her debut at the world-renowned Tresor Club in Berlin in 2018, and more recently at Oval Space in London at the long-running and respected SecretSundaze series. With a deep respect and appreciation for the roots and soul of dance music, Ash has solidified her sound and mission in music. This can be experienced through her emotive writing and DJ sets, that consist of everything from Soul, to Disco, to House and Techno. The Detroit native is a fresh and energetic voice; a passionate ambassador of one of America’s homegrown music traditions, and her “Underground & Black” vision is shaping the fabric of contemporary club culture.
