Kris Kallenbach
Senior Managing Editor - kris@thenocturnaltimes.com
Kris is the Senior Managing Editor here at The Nocturnal Times. Music has always been his life, and his first real exposure to dance music was the debut Justice CD “Cross” where he caught hell for listening to boop bop music. From there he was entrapped and knew he wanted to support this scene in any way he could. Currently a big future bass fiend but loves some downtempo, prog, hearty house, pretty much anything.

Kylie Parham
Writer & Interviewer - kylie@thenocturnaltimes.com

Hi! I'm Kylie and I'm originally from Tallahassee, Florida currently living in Orlando. Writing has been a passion of mine since I learned the art, and I have been creating poems, short-stories, plays, journals, un-finished novels, and now free-lance articles ever since. Other than writing, I am a professional model currently in Orlando and NYC, hoping to pursue a career in this field as well as the electronic music industry. Music is my life-blood, and I spend all my spare time researching new music, finding new artists and traveling to music festivals with my friends. Follow me on social media to learn more about my modeling and music obsessions!
