GawdX (they/them) is a Black queer DJ, stylist, fashion & jewelry designer of Trinbagonian/Senegalese descent currently based in Trinidad and Tobago.
GawdX’s influences are multi and fluid. Growing up & living in a diverse range of cultures exposed them to a wide-range of music, audible in their mixes. Their parents were passionate about music & used to make and play compilation CDs for the family, introducing a young GawdX to playlist curation, a skill that would later translate into their DJing.
Their mixes deliver narratives of Black transcendence, resistance, and joy, and they particularly seek to spotlight Black women and queer artists.
A deep love of community & dance is a big part of why they DJ. They make mixes to both move and connect people. GawdX is co-founder of T&T queer DJ collective Batti Mamzelle (batti.mamzelle) alongside DJs Jay Ryse and Tims. Continuing to create safe spaces for BIPOC is central to their vision.
