DXCEGAME was conceived amidst the kind of relentless optimism that naturally comes with the first year of college, the first year of independence, the first taste of youth. We were a group of young writers and artists who loved music, but we found ourselves feeling increasingly alienated by the world of music criticism. We were not reflected in the publications we read: the writing was esoteric and impenetrable; the writers were predominantly white and pretentious. There was something missing, a gap we felt ourselves perfect to fit. DXCEGAME has become a place for both ourselves and the culture to grow.
The DXCEGAME Team:
Bobby is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of DXCEGAME Media. Their favorite album of all time is XXX by Danny Brown, and they are a proud Flo-Militant.
Zac is the Print Manager at DXCEGAME. When he isn’t working a day job,
he’s playing with his baby boy and listening to Madlib’s Shades of Blue or John Coltrane’s Giant Steps.
Bayo is the Managing Editor of DXCEGAME. He loves writing as a vehicle it provides him to broadcast some of his favorite takes, like the fact that Cozy Tapes Vol. 2>Cozy Tapes Vol. 1, or that Tupac’s music generally stinks.
Chunghwa is DXCEGAME’s Art Editor. She is working to increase educational equity in our schools and wants young people to know that artistic talent, like anything, can be both taught and learned. She loves long walks on the beach, Asian food, and speculative fiction. Lately, she’s been dancing to Calle 13 and screaming to Olivia Rodrigo.
Aviv is our Chicago Correspondent. He focuses on amplifying the voices of the underground and finding the next NEXT shit. He is on his eighth year of e-mailing his alderman to petition for The Diplomats to play at 6 Corners Rib Fest.
Clyde serves as DXCEGAME’s Atlanta Correspondent, keeping a tab on various up-and-coming acts in greater Atlanta. When he’s not looking after his nephew, he’s talking shit, wagging a finger at the news with one hand and nursing a Backwood in the other. His favorite album is Drunk by Thundercat.
Justin Lennox heads DXCE FM. He proudly hails from the IE (iykyk). His favorite album is Graduation by Kanye West.
