Check out Nicole and Rachel Henderson’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Henderson and Rachel Henderson.

Nicole, Rachel, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
We are the twin DJ duo, Double Vision. As early as we can remember, we’ve always been within musical environments. From our parents consistently playing Motown hits to our grandfather being a classical jazz musician, we’ve always had a love for music. We moved to Los Angeles at the age of 17 from Chicago to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Downtown LA. There we majored in business management and marketing. During college, we had a clothing line named Double Vision. This venture taught us the ins and outs of running our own business and collaborating with others.

After years of wanting to DJ, we had our first interaction when we went to a DJ friend’s home for a lesson. That same week, we instantly bought our first DJ controller and the practice began. At this time, we were both working full time corporate jobs in marketing and buying. After attending Beat Junkies Institute in Glendale, CA, we felt we were ready to make the big switch. We quit our full-time business jobs to join the full time DJ lifestyle. Since then, we’ve been DJing art, music, and fashion events along with parties, clubs, and fundraisers, while coordinating our own events. We can honestly say we are living our dream lives and we can’t wait to expand even more.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
Double Vision is a lifestyle brand. We DJ events and parties while also beginning to create our own content and coordinate events. Creatives; that’s who we are as beings. We love switching between new artist and old school classics along with beats from all around the world. A lot of our sets bend genres, bringing together different crowds on the dance floor. There’s a lot of divide in the world and we found a calling for bringing people together. We’re spreading a wave of united consciousness and positivity.

Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
It is much easier to create music with the technology and platforms available today, even looking at DJing. Technology advancements to the traditional turntable setup allows DJs to be mobile and travel easier to gigs, store all our music on a computer, learn how to mix with just a computer, and use built in sound effects. Also having the ability to stream music online has been a huge advancement. It sped up the ability for music to go from local to worldwide overnight. Both of these industry developments made it easier for people to make music and get it out to the public, making the industry very dense.

Los Angeles does an excellent job pushing artist to thrive because of the city’s collaborative nature. We desire to host more shows for upcoming artist to showcase their skills. Our events will be a platform for artist to collaborate their music with other areas like fashion designers, stylist, managers, agents, business owners, etc., and genuinely support one another.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
People can see our work on our Instagram and by coming through our DJ gigs. We post most of our gigs on our Instagram timeline or Instagram story. Also, we have a project coming out soon that will be viewable on our website, Soundcloud, and YouTube! Stay tuned.
