Back in the day, Star Eyes brought hip sounds from across the pond way before statesiders had even heard the stuff. More than fifteen years later, one of the first female drum and bass DJs in the lower 48 is still bringing the ruckus. Star Eyes, aka Vivian Host, originally made noise in L.A.s underground scene before moving to Brooklyn, where shes been tearing up the clubs as a member of the Trouble & Bass emcee quartet. Now, the haunted house (in her words) DJ, whos influenced by vintage Mac and Nintendo game music, is out on her own during a US tour that will hit Bar Smith.
