Producer, DJ and community organizer Andrew Mallinoff goes by “Loch Raven”-- named after a wilderness area that he often explored growing up and the reservoir that serves as the water source for where he now lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
From airy melodic vocal accompaniments to bass lines that build from gritty lows to the feeling of wrapping yourself in a warm blanket, Andrew’s music channels the journey of being a human experiencing both the lifegiving and sometimes harsh elements of the natural world. Andrew first performed as a drummer in a Pop Punk band.
He continues to use elements of that genre in his songwriting to produce tracks that connect emotionally with the listener. When he’s not in the studio, Andrew is often advocating for equitable access to education for young people in Baltimore and fighting systems of oppression along the way.
