DJ Fate Drops Bomb #Techno Debut on KLST Scheduled for Tonight! 9-12 8 P.M. EST | School Night: Photo Wrap Up.

Since I took my new duties at 103.5 KLST I have had not had a chance to hit the decks in weeks. You know what? I don’t even care. It’s like every day I wake up and get some dope news. Today was no different when I finally got my hands on DJ Fate’s care package for KLST rotation. I was giddy when I woke up to a text this morning from the multi-genre beat slayer herself. “I’ll be home around 3, I’ll get that to you.”

“DJ Fate began her music career in April of 2000 in Indianapolis. She got her first residency, mixing house music, in 2006 at Therapy Nightclub and Lounge with OnTrack (formerly SideTrack) promoting “PLUSH” on Thursday nights. Other residencies include Champagne Disco at Casba in Broad Ripple and Metro Nightclub on Massachusetts Ave in Indy. She has performed at many other bars in the city, including The Patron Saint, Vogue, Talbott Street, Greg’s, Tini, and The Melody Inn. Fate has some festival experience as well. Most recently, on the main stage at Indy Pride, sharing the stage with Lizzo!”

I had to come home from work early due which can be pretty routine. I have intermittent FMLA due to my better half’s health issues. I got home, got some cartoons and lunch going for our toddler while she rested and set up my computer in what I call the “Safe Space” to continue the tedious task of getting all these file uploaded to management. I got mad files uploading, the mini-me finishes his lunch and I do the 45 minute ritual of running through the house with him like a maniac to wear him down before nap time as files upload. A little while later with the munchkin soundly asleep I look to see the time… 3:45… Check messages… Nothing… I’m pacing… I’ve been waiting in anticipation of this “package” for days. Getting DJ Fate on board with KLST was another one of those big deals to me. Every DJ I can get on board is a big deal to me, but some DJs are special to me and Fate was one of them. She has skills, character, and an image that makes her stand out from the rest. Not to mention, I’ve never heard a negative thing ever come out of her mouth . This day and age, positivity goes a long way in this business. A hard lesson I’ve come to learn again and again.

“Production was always something that piqued Fate’s interest, so she started to produce in 2015 with her first release on Guerrilla Noise Records in 2017. Currently, she has releases on Plain-Face Music (Chicago) and unreleased music on Soundcloud.

*DING* Oh shit! Look down at phone… google drive link… word!
SUP YO!
Hey Thanks A lot!
No problem, Thank you for the package
My new mix is in there, it’s Techno. 80 minutes long, 30 tracks.
OMG, FOR REAL?”
Yeah man, I’m really stoked on it, honestly, it’s the most favorite mix I have ever done. You can just throw it into rotation, I’ll upload it to social later.
No way girl, let me run a feature, promote it, we’ll blast it through KLST’s signal tomorrow night at 8 P.M. Eastern, Prime Time Baby! Tell everyone they get to hear it here first!
Okay, go for it dude. Great Idea!
Bet, I’ll get the word out now!
