Dischetto is Jade Waterman, 23 year old female DJ based in Philadelphia, PA. In addition to DJing for the past 8.5 years, she also has played the harp, guitar, and piano for 14+ years. When she started out DJing she was mainly spinning French electro and hip-hop but for the past 4 years, she’s shifted her focus to dark dystopian techno. She has a strong passion for 80’s and 90’s electronica life Kraftwerk, Front 242, Depeche Mode, and Dopplereffekt as well as modern techno like Gesaffelstein, Djedjotronic, Siriusmo, and Strip Steve, to name a few.
Some performance highlights of hers include playing Holy Ship’s pre-party at Space Miami, playing b2b with Madame (BNR) in New York City, and a b2b set with PILO, Escor Krist, and Deapmash in Los Angeles.
Dischetto’s performance alias was originally a portmanteau of ‘dischetto’ and ‘tech’, resulting in the name: Dischetto-tech (pronounced: dis-ketto-tek), an homage to techno’s early roots in Detroit and Chicago ghetto-tech.
