DISCHETTO is Jade Waterman, a 23 year old DJ currently based in Philadelphia. In addition to DJing for the past 8 years, she has also continued to satisfy her musical prowess by actively playing the harp, guitar, and piano for 15+ years.
As a resident of NYC’s iconic Webster Hall, DISCHETTO is currently exercising her skills as a DJ for their Saturday night GOTHAM night that features some world renown deep house and techno acts.
With strong roots in classic electronica a la Kraftwerk, Nitzer Ebb, Depeche Mode, and Dopplereffekt, she combines her passion for retro electro sounds with modern techno elements in her DJ sets.
DISCHETTO has opened for everyone from Boys Noize to Mija, Moon Boots, Wax Motif, and Bixel Boys, has played b2b sets with PILO, Madame, Deapmash, and Escor Krist, and has brought her menacing brand of techno and electro to Los Angeles, NYC, and most notably, Holy Ship in Miami. Known on the internet as Nest HQ’s resident techno expert, DISCHETTO has steadily been gaining traction in the music world and has no plans to stop anytime soon.
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.
