My name is Erwin Arias-Hervert and I am the mind behind DENDRA. I was born in Mexico City in 1985 and started DJing in the year 2000. I went to college and got a bachelor’s degree in Experimental Biology and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science, and then I moved to Ann Arbor after being recruited by the University of Michigan in 2016 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
Electronic music has been always my passion and I decided to craft this project in 2019 with two goals in mind: 1) Start producing and releasing original music under the name DENDRA and 2) To organize small underground parties in Ann Arbor to bring people together and hopefully buildup a local community of electronic music lovers, producers & DJs.
Once upon a time, Detroit was considered an epicenter of Techno worldwide. Likewise, my dream is to turn Ann Arbor into an epicenter for underground DJs and producers to perform and showcase their work.
