Glynn AKA Highgnx



Glynn, also known as Highgnx, is here for a good time, and much more. According to her bio, the Brooklyn-based producer and DJ “works to unify and elevate all sounds of Blackness through her mixes to create a sense of joy, love, and community on the dance floor.” Attend one of Glynn’s events and you’re likely to be surrounded by her influences, including 1990s hip-hop, Afrobeats, Baltimore club and acidic jazz. “My best friend Tasha got me into DJing,” Glynn says. “We bonded off of all of the music that we grew up listening to, and after following her to a few gigs, and watching her blend all of my favorite ‘90s hip-hop and R&B, I knew I had to figure out how to do it on my own.” In addition to gigging and producing by herself, Glynn is the co-founder of Sailor Boom, a POC- and LGBTQ-friendly hip-hop and cosplay party series. For Glynn, mixing is all about the crowd. “The most rewarding aspect of DJing for me has been watching people—especially queer people—smile, dance, and react to the way I mix my music,” she says. “I love influencing their mood through a range of different genres and time periods. It’s almost like emotional time travel.”
