Memphis, TN

Memphis, Tennessee's Michael Ivy (aka Qemist) is part of a new generation of beat makers carving out his own niche in the Memphis music scene. When one thinks of this Blues music mecca, you're more likely to think of Elvis or B.B.King than underground footwork and chill electronica, but that's where Qemist shines. His music is inspired by everything from Japanese culture to 70s French Jazz, creating the perfect balance of bouncy club and cerebral vibes.
