DJ ALYSON CALAGNA
“Do not seal up the words of the prophecy, for the time is near.”
DJ Alyson Calagna’s dancefloor is where faith and fable; gods and goddesses; and discovery and desire meet in a new truthology of sound.
The outernational DJ is the pioneer behind the sound of “Omtronica,” mixing sexual, sensual and spiritual rhythms with tones of empowerment and ecstasy. From beats of shared consciousness to the tribal ballet of contemporary longings, Calagna’s unique blend of organic sound, poetic wisdom and modern pulses combine to bring the listener to center of their conscience and the heart of the dancefloor.
With an international list of appearances – across the United States and in Brazil, Mexico, Montreal and beyond – Calagna has perfected a sound that is globally influenced and instantly recognizable. Her music has appeared on NBC’s Trauma, USA’s Plain Sight and MTV’s Cribs, she has had releases on major dance labels such as Nervous, Stereo Productions, Intenso and Star69. She has also headlined some of the world’s biggest dance and circuit events and regularly plays to sold out crowds at some of the largest venues around the world including Pacha, Space, Crobar, The Government and more. Critics have lauded her for discovering an unmistakable “sound of her own,” and she has garnered a dedicated following in nearly every corner of the world.
Calagna’s forthcoming album, “Omtronica: Music for the Seeker,” marks the debut release of her new, Eastern-influenced sound. Part yoga retreat – and part South Beach heat – “Omtronica” reinvents the dance experience as a soulful labyrinth winding toward awakening, revelation and power.
By creating a world both personal and external – of both breathing and breathlessness – Calagna, and those tuned into her, become lamas of the mind . . . the mantra . . . the mat . . . and the floor.
