Arietta knew early on that music runs through her blood...

She holds over 15 years of classical/jazz training as a multi-instrumentalist and as a composer, and has performed, competitively and freely in various projects ranging from an acid jazz band, an electroacoustic duo, and various symphony orchestras, bands, and choirs. Electronic music came into the picture in high school and after her first set of turntables there was no turning back. By the time she was 18 she held a club residency in her hometown of Phoenix, AZ, and was a frequent Drum and Bass performer in the Southwest US underground. After a brief hiatus, in 2015 she launched her breakbeat project, Proper Thirteen, with DJ Louder. Their love for electronic music allows for the duo to offer an eclectic take on bass music always with undertones of their diverse, nostalgic musical history. Recently, Arietta has been releasing singles and is hard at work on her first solo Drum and Bass EP anticipated by Fall 2017.
