Dreatraxx, arrived in the US when she was just seven years old and settled in Jackson Heights-Queens, and later moved to Jamaica, Queens,New York. Drea was introduced to Rap/Hip-Hop music at an early age through her older cousin. Some of her earliest Hip-Hop influences include the works of such artists as Public Enemy, Run DMC, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, just to name a few. “Hip-Hop is my love; I’m always exploring other music genres. She grew up on Latin music as well- examples include the sounds of Salsa, Cumbia, etc. Due to her fascination with these versatile art forms, Drea taught herself how to play the keyboard by ear at the age of only ten and soon after took on the alias of Dreatrax. “Dreatrax is just short for my name Andrea, and Trax are the beats, the music I compose, as well as arrange.” When Drea first started making music, her conflict was with herself. She was embarrassed to let anyone else listen to it because she was insecure. As she gained more confidence in her music, she overcame that fear. “I would not presently feel embarrassed if someone doesn’t like my music. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion; the confidence should always be there if you know your music.” Due to the impact of Hip-Hop culture in her life, Drea began to explore into the elements of emceeing and deejaying. She then bought herself an Akai MPC 2000, a keyboard and an 8 track multi-track with the rebate she received from her college loans. Andrea experienced adrenaline every time she was in front of music equipment. Hence, her dedication to the art forms of musical production. Dreatraxx got her first shot at selling her first beat through Devante Swing from the legendary R&B group Jodeci.
