Hyasynth (aka Karen O’Branovich) fell in love with records at a young age, and her obsession with music has manifested itself in several forms. A professional dancer and instructor by trade, her sense of rhythm has been called “innate and seemingly effortless” while her mixing skills are smooth and precise. Karen began as a DJ in 2000 while living in New York City pursuing her Broadway dreams. She moved to Seattle in 2004 and started an all-female DJ weekly residency at See Sound Lounge called ‘Grace’ with Erin O’Connor-Drew, then gained more exposure to the local scene by booking gigs at major venues in Seattle and Portland. She joined Karl Kamakahi as a member of the De La Crème crew in 2006, played the Bellingham Electronic Music Festival in 2008, and has been a frequent headlining guest at favorite Seattle spots such as Flammable Sundays (Rebar), Train Car House Party, Electric Tea Garden, Q, The Woods, The Eagle, Kremwerk, and Monkey Loft. Hyasynth has released several live mixes, opened for legends such as Doc Martin, Colette, Ben Watt, Rick Preston, and Andrew Riley, and is continually inspired by Seattle’s local talent. Her live mixes have been featured twice on 107.7fm TheEND’s Subtronic End, and Karen has been a proud member of the Bottom Forty crew in Seattle since 2014. Catch her if you can!!
