What I love most about being a DJ is researching tracks, sounds, and styles that I’ve never heard before. It’s all worth it when I find artists that make me hold my head and after imagining it playing in a club and how it’ll make people feel. I love the feeling before I get on stage, having no idea how it’s going to turn out. 

Inspiration comes and goes all the time. I love deep and fat music, also floating. I love sticking groovy house beats and acid in my tracks. Mostly, I love switching things up so that it feels like an inspirational journey.

I feel being a female DJ is sometimes an advantage. Just a few years ago, a few female pioneers opened the gates for us, and it’s been a thing ever since. Now, it’s the talk of the town, and people even prefer it – even if they’re a bit less talented. We know how to throw a party. Regardless, the DJ scene still has a male vibe, and lots of ego. It feels like there’s room for women on the train, but not in the driver’s seat.

Recently, the DJ scene has become saturated, and producers are only thinking about money. What’s happening now is that the real “good times” – the good music and dance scene – have all gone underground.
