Ariel Zetina is a Chicago-based DJ, producer, and playwright. She is a resident at the legendary Smartbar and runs many of her own club nights in the city. Ariel has released music on Boukan Records (including underground club hit “Addy:” feat. London Jade), Club Chai, Sweat Equity, and Knightwerk, with a 2019 EP forthcoming on Maija.
I wanted to talk to Ariel because she’s doing great things in Chicago, bringing both people and different kinds of music together. I went to one of her parties at the Hideout and had an amazing time, the music and the vibe were great and it was clear that both were very connected to who she is. And then she put out tracks like “Oil Rig” and “Chino” and I became a fan of her music. Also, I was very curious to ask about her work as a playwright.
