Featured Artist : : Sari Postol : : St. Louis, MO

Lime Lounge - 10.1.2017 - Des Moines, Iowa


Back from our hiatus, we are proud to feature one of our favorite Artist/DJ's. Hailing from St. Louis, from the Mahogany Underground, we are excited to feature Sari Postol, in our first Q and A featured artist series.


: : Tell us your history of how you fell in love with music, and when did you decide to become a dj.  

A : : I’ve been a music lover my entire life. My father was a DJ, and I grew up listening to everything from 90s rave music to Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails to mid-late 90s trance (a lot of Ministry of Sound). I also was a ballet dancer for 18 years, so I was exposed to a lot of classical music as well. As for when I decided to become a DJ, when I saw Sasha in a warehouse in Saint Louis about 4 years ago, I knew I had to learn how to mix.

Q : : How long have you been spinning?

A : : I’ve been spinning approximately for a year and a half. 

 Ekvilibrium - Revolution 3 - 5.6.2017 - St. Charles, IA 

: : Give us insight on Sari Postol and your alter ego Gone Postol, and the difference between the two.

: : I’ve been Djing under my real name, because mixing music is my way of expressing myself by weaving together tracks into mixes of different styles. Gone Postol is more of my side project where I’m developing and honing the harder/more intense genres. I also plan on using both my name and moniker when I dive into production.  

Q : : Tell us about the Mahogany Underground. 

A : : Mahogany Underground is my project for promotion and building a community of strong artists. Though it’s still in its infancy stage, the goal is to bring fans and artists together by throwing events featuring artists who play powerful, intelligent dance music with an elegant finesse. The community building takes place during the production and djing workshops thrown by headliners. These events give the opportunity for newer artists and experienced artists alike to learn new skills and/or hone the craft that they already have experience in.

Q : : Who are some of the DJs / Artists that inspire or have inspired you over the years?  

A : : This is a tough question. I can honestly say that I am inspired by every artist I have had the pleasure of working with, meeting, and playing alongside at shows. Sasha’s programming is absolutely incredible. Mark EG has that magnetic effect that just pulls in crowds and leaves a body count after. I love Woody McBride’s ability to create those tracks that just make dance floors explode with energy. I could go on and on.

Q : : What do you listen to outside of electronic music?  

A : : Outside of electronic music, I listen to a little bit of everything (pop, rock, country, hiphop, etc). I also listen to a lot of classical music.  

Q : : Where have you played in your career?  

A : : Though I’m still relatively fresh to the circuit, I’ve had some incredible opportunities to play locally and travel for shows. Favorite events include corn field campouts in Iowa, intimate underground events in Chicago and Minneapolis, and getting to play on the DIYSS: Children of the Corn Stage at Even Furthur 2017, to name a few. I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had, and I look forward to seeing what the future has in store.  

Q : : Where can people find your music?
