In the true spirit of music discovery, Sasha Marie builds soundscapes to introduce moods and curate feelings. With a thoughtful and delicate approach, this kind and genuine soul serves as a central point for bringing community together through scores. Sasha Marie's poignant mixes have appeared on BBC 1xtra, The FADER and Hypebeast.


With a deep rooted love of music instilled from an early age by her father, Sasha Marie draws on influences from every side of the musical ecosystem – Amy Winehouse to Flying Lotus, M.I.A. to Billie Holiday and back to MF Doom.


Jazz sensibility fused with natural soul and the ability to finesse varied audiences, Sasha Marie's carefully selected sounds position her as the ultimate curator. Well versed in entertaining intimate crowds in her San Diego hometown and SOHO HOUSE HOLLYWOOD to rocking the legendary KOKO in London, Moulin Rouge in Paris and AFROPUNK ATL, Sasha stays pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a musical storyteller. Surrounding herself in good company, Ms. Marie has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Ms. Lauryn Hill, Dam Funk, SOSUPERSAM, Goldlink, The Internet and many more.

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.
