EDM producer & DJ out of Southern California, Eksoh has been on a mission to consistently make their mark on the electronic music scene since making their debut at the beginning of 2022.
An Emmy award-winning film, commercial, and music video director, Colin Pierce has been releasing a single on the first Friday of every month since the start of the year, eventually culminating into his first EP, First Fridays. His latest single, “Freaky” is the latest nightclub-ready dance track, preceded by “Underwater,” “Greater Than Love,” “Melt My Face Off,” and “Lies.”
“I made this track after a girl who I had been seeing for a while said, ‘tonight is the night to get freaky’ (like the lyrics repeat) while we were ‘getting intimate’ and then proceeded to punch me in the jaw with a vicious right hook.” Eksoh continues, “She thought it was super hot, I thought it was without a doubt the most jarring experience of my life. It inspired Freaky though, which is now my favorite track I’ve ever made! Enjoy!”
Pierce (Eksoh) considers himself ex(failed)-pro surfer, but by being in orbit of the surfing community and being willing to hold a camera at a young age you could say he rode that wave into a full blown and celebrated career in film. Eventually, his credits would include working as worked as Head of Production for Snoop Dogg’s marketing company; he also launched Revolt Live for Puff Daddy, and will be releasing two feature films that he is writing, directing, and scoring in 2023.
Eksoh’s “Freaky” uses lyrical repetition as an anchor for the rhythmic and melodic transformation the track undergoes in three and a half minutes. Changes in the instrumentation are heralded with hard stops while the song ebbs and flows with varying degrees of intensity. If this is your jam, you’re going to love digging into his already growing catalog. Each track checks off a different kind of creative box for Eksoh and offers a unique contribution to the various subgenres of EDM.

Aria Velz is a director, TikToker, and Lesbian Media Enthusiast based in the D.C. area. On November 2nd, she sat down with me to talk about it all, from her latest production at Olney Theatre Center to the things that lead to her little corner on TikTok.
On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
