TYGAPAW

Music Residency

TYGAPAW (Dion McKenzie) is a multi-disciplined producer and DJ based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Her Jamaican ancestry and upbringing fused with her 13 years living in New York City have influenced a music style she dubs “Sultry Club.” She incorporates sexy 90’s R&B sounds with futuristic vibes and intricate melodies that are as much for the club as they are for a chill kiki at your home girls crib. Her productions are unique and specific to her history. She is the curator behind “Fake Accent,” a monthly Brooklyn based queer club night that has featured DJ’s such as Rizzla, False Witness, HD, Mursi Layne, and more, and also the co-curator behind queer Caribbean party series and creative platform, “NO BADMIND.”
