Amanda Koontz (They/She) is an experimental non-binary Latinx DJ/Producer and is focused on creating emotional connections with their audience. After years of being a club rat in cities like Chicago and NYC, Amanda returned Texas and found a home in Austin, spelunking deep in the underground-DIY scene.

In 2023, Koontz launched Stalactite Records with her partner Feeling Affection to give a sonic platform to marginalized voices. Additionally, Amanda holds a residency with Shared Frequencies Radio and regularly plays at Coconut Club, Club Eternal, Cheer-Up Charlies, The Venue and various DIY events in Austin, Texas.
