Desi Raines
Desi Raines
Desi Raines is a simple dude. A little bit singer, a little bit songwriter and he’s looking to change the world through music on his own terms. His love of music began at 3 yrs old, and his pursuit of music started at the age of 10. 15 years later and he finally feels like he’s where he’s supposed to be. He’s done a few shows, a few competitions, and has had a couple of tv appearances, but the past doesn’t matter. It’s all about looking to the future and Desi’s sure you’ll be there to experience it with him.
Hourglass
Hourglass
Early in life, Charlotte, NC native Hourglass learned that aside from family and a few close friends, the staple in her life was her passion for music. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, Hourglass decided to utilize her business degree in a less conventional way than her peers.

In 2011, Hourglass founded a blog devoted to promoting new talent in music. Soon after, she became one of the editors and moderators of popular Hip Hop startup RapGenius.com and served as Music Editor for TheWellVersed.com. All of these jobs helped her discover her love for mixing music, and there’s been no looking back since her rst gig in 2012.

After working her way into the dj booths of Atlanta’s most notable venues without any major backing, Hourglass has found a family in WERC Crew, an event production collective of creative curators and in uencers. With WERC, Hourglass not only performs, but plans and executes each event with her partners from beginning to end. Currently, Hourglass is a resident DJ at Atlanta venues El Bar and Negril Village.

Most recently, Hourglass graced the Toyota DJ stage of the A3C Festival, performed at SXSW Festival along with One Music Fest, Afropunk’s Red Bull Sound Select, Milk & Cookies Fest, and Afropunk ATL: The Carnival of Consciousness. A concrete rose who has found her place in a community full of talent using her motto “Think Outside the Clock,” Hourglass’s style ranges from future beats and house to reggae, hip hop, top 40, and everything in between.
