ABOUT: Jess “PlayPlay” Dilday is a DJ, producer, composer, educator and activist residing in Queens, NYC. PlayPlay combines their penchant for percussion and bass with nostalgic hip-hop and classic house samples in both their DJ sets & music production. PlayPlay’s music is inspired by what they grew up listening to – namely jungle, breakbeat hardcore, industrial, jock jams, classic house & old school hip hop. Using a combination of samples and hardware synthesizers to create everything from unearthly basslines to high-octane acid/industrial sounds, PlayPlay makes energetic music that is both familiar and hard to pin down. In 2018, they debuted their EP release “It’s Only 3am” on Knightwerk Records, and have since released on labels such as Worst Behavior and Cybersonic LA.

ABOUT: Since 2004, Moogfest has been a forum for the exchange of ideas by artists, futurists, inventors, entrepreneurs, and scientists. By day, Moogfest is a platform for conversation and experimentation, attracting creative and tech enthusiasts for four days of participatory programming in Durham, North Carolina. By night, Moogfest presents cutting-edge performances by early pioneers in electronic music, contemporary pop innovators, and avant-garde experimentalists in venues throughout the city.
Moogfest is a tribute to analog synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog and the profound influence his inventions have had on how we hear the world over the last 60 years. The exchange between engineer and musician that he fostered is celebrated with a unique festival format where the creative process is understood as collaboration among many people, across time and space, in commerce and culture.
