As a new photographer around Hy-Tekk I wasn’t sure what to expect at these shows, but I have yet to leave one anything less than elated. WE HAD A BLAST! Just another baller night at the Granada in great company with great music.
Hailing from Kansas City, Grom is an up and coming DJ whose passion for music of all kinds is the prime driving force in his life. Specializing in mixing hardcore & happy hardcore, Grom cannot get enough of all kinds of electronic dance music. He loves to attend EDM shows and events and making music with his friends to whom he owes much and more for shaping him as both a person who focuses on life’s positives and as a DJ, sharing his love of music for the enjoyment of others.
Beginning his love affair with music in junior high, he started listening to punk rock, alternative, progressive alt/rock, classical music and symphonic metal. This led to the start of a passion for EDM by way of electronica groups such as Pendulum and Infected Mushroom. Spinning many genres of techno music, from psy-trance to drum n’ bass to hardstyle, he feels one with the beats when he is mixing hardcore and happy hardcore. The driving energy and uplifting motifs of the music capture him in a way that is, in his opinion, absolutely unparalleled.
Outside of music, Grom holds a keen interest in computers, technology, astronomy, physics, and biology; all of these combined make him a complete and total nerd, a characterization in which he takes an immense pride. Through physics and astronomy in particular, Grom is swept away by the beauty and complexity of the universe of which we are all a part. The grand majesty and mystery of our existence is very spiritual to him. He sees life in general and the conscious mind in particular as a way for the universe to know and understand itself. It is this realization that drives Grom to be a passionate and positive individual, and makes him want to share his love of life with all others.
