Octavia, aka Beth Dzierwa, is a Michigan native with a knack for mixing records. A typical day for Beth is simple: Music. Work. Education. Promoting. Her desire to become a DJ was triggered in part by listening to Teresa Hill on the, “After School Groove House Party.” Beth found house music as an audience member to be an art form she loved to experience, but also as an enticing career prospect. She started djing in in 2014 and since she has performed at; The Art Gallery of Windsor, Urban Bean, Marble Bar, Rosie O’Grady’s, City Club, Detroit Threads, Eastern Market, Temple Bar and Phog Lounge. She was invited to be a member of Deep Sessions in 2017 and has also mixed records for Detroit Techno Militia at record store day 2018. Octavia works at a record store so you never know what new sounds to expect from bag of records.
