MEDIA MAVEN
DJ B-GIRL "CHILLZ" AKA MIA BEARDSLEY
Hometown: Born in Seoul, Korea, she now lives in Seattle.
Age: 31
Sound: Experimental rap and trip-hop with an old-school feel.
Stepping up: In the midst of building her own media company, DJ B-Girl has put a lot of thought into the role of women in the music industry. “There are a lot of women in control behind the scenes,” the entrepreneur says. “But they are sometimes just going with the flow and aiding the process of repetitive destructive imagery and ideas being spread to our communities through the mass media.” Enter B-Girl Media, the record label that DJ B-Girl “Chillz” hopes to expand into an independent media channel. “I’d like to portray a more honest and realistic picture to our communities and youth.”
What's next? “Cultivating B-Girl Media, new releases by two new artists, and reppin' the two-oh-six.”
