Y Diz: "Miami's Scene Is Popping Right Now"

If you've been to a recent local show in the 305, then chances are you've run into Y Diz.

Whether performing or just hanging out in the crowd, he can be seen around Miami's clubs, rocking his signature long hair and viking-like beard.

Having worked with artists like Afrobeta, Cornerstoners, and Galactic Effect, he has certainly earned his stripes on Miami's music scene. But his main focus remains leading the team of intergalactic superheroes known as Telekinetic Walrus and the Pride of Ions.

We caught up with Y Diz before he left on a three-week musical journey across America's Atlantic Coast with Telekinetic Walrus. The topics of conversation included his kooky name, music and mathematics, and his plans for the future.
