Ayes Cold is a DJ based in DC, known for her ability to curate extremely different musical styles into a seamless mix.
Originally from India, Ayes Cold has lived in cities like Madras, Chicago, London, San Francisco, Bangalore, and Los Angeles. Her nomadic past is one of the biggest influences on her selections as a DJ, and they often convey her feelings of transience and cultural dislocation. Starting off in D.C.’s basements and living rooms, Ayes soon moved on to perform at a range of DC venues (e.g. Tropicalia, The Howard Theatre, Liv, 930 Club, Union Arts, DC9, Den of Thieves, Flash, Backbar, and U Street Music Hall), and every other Wednesday you can find her and Native Sun spinning at the Velvet Lounge.
