From guitarist/singer-songwriter in bands performing at Bogarts and 20th Century Theatre in his hometown of Cincinnati to high-energy house sets at Chop Shop/1st Ward Events, Five Roses and North Coast Music Festival in Chicago, Dexter has been exploring and performing music his whole life.
Upon moving to Chicago in 2011, Dexter became a studious participant in the electronic music culture in Chicago, with a growing affinity for house music. Having decided to prioritize music production, Dexter used his studio experience and natural ear to begin creating original tracks and remixes of artists like Calvin Harris, Mord Fustang, and Missy Elliot, with several garnering attention in local and national contests.
After years of intense focus honing his talents in the studio, Dexter was brimming with excitement to play out again. Dexter shifted his attention to learning from seasoned local DJs and curating progressive DJ sets, evoking Chicago house vibes and infusing innovative sounds that evolved from it. Following a number of well-received DJ sets at parties and open decks nights in Chicago, Dexter began performing at Chicago nightlife hotspots and gained a monthly residency third Fridays at 8A5E Cafe & Hybrid Space. Perhaps the most defining moment in Dexter's musical progression in 2016 was sharing the bill with idols and influential acts like Golf Clap and Zavala at North Coast Music Festival.
