Candy Says is a pair of indie DJs, formerly of 4imaginaryboys. The DJ twosome have played in music festivals, clubs, and outdoor bars.
The often-dusted vinyls on Candy Says’ turntables cover alternative rock, indie electronica, shoegaze, folk, punk, post-punk, and the occasional Kanye. Born in Manila, raised in Singapore and immersed in the San Francisco scene, Drem (read Popwire’s For The Record by Dre Reyes here) brings his style of true school hip hop, deep soul and funk straight to the platter turntablist- style.
