Zel has always had a profound love for music, and this love began when she was a young dancer performing and watching videos on VH1 and MTV. Zel fell in love with all types of genres but was specifically drawn to the B96 Mixmasters and heavily influenced by Hip Hop and R&B.
What started as an outlet and a hobby quickly became her main focus and passion. It was an adrenaline rush to try new things with different types of music creatively, but seeing how people reacted to the music drove her to continue to learn more about the art.
Zel is an open format DJ who has a firm grasp on all genres but is well known for her high energy and throwback sets. In 2019 she debuted as an Official Chicago Whitesox DJ and member of the DJ duo, H!GH LO. With a growing list of accolades, Zel continues to make her mark throughout Chicago and beyond.
