Keeping it Deep, Dark, and Underground

About Joelle Sedlmeyer
Joelle Sedlmeyer (AKA: DJ JSed)-
Grew up in Detroit going to parties in the 1990s and will never forget what I heard and felt. Now live in Bushwick Brooklyn working in photography and Djing for fun. Djing is about the 'People' for me-sharing music, and getting friends to dance. I love deep house, Tech house, Electro, Chillwave, and Synthpop.

The Music and that excitement you get in the pit of your stomach when you drop a track at the perfect moment.

three that influence my Djing: My job which is working in a famous photographic archive , memories of driving at night in Detroit, and a friend named Trystan who encouraged me to DJ.

Salsa, Chips, and Guacomole

All-time favorite track(s)?

Inner City- Good Life
Rhythim is Rhythim - Strings of Life
Claude VonStroke- Who's Afraid of Detroit

DEMF. When you see people older then your parents dancing to music only then can you see how it is ingrained in the culture of Detroit.

Funniest/weirdest thing that ever happened during a gig?

Someone asked me to play the theme song to the TV show SMASH. Huh?

What advice do you have for someone looking to book a DJ? Other than "book me!" ;)

Know what type of mood you want to set at your event. Understand that every DJ has a style that is specific.

Anything else you'd like to share (optional)?

Looking for gigs with a mix of people who love house music and if it's an outdoor space even better.
