There’s so much to love about being a DJ. I love that I’m the channel between people and music; I love that I can make people forget their troubles and just dance; Mostly, I love the moment when I turn down the volume and hear everyone screaming.

I think sticking to genres is so passeé. My style is freestyle: I play everything and everything I play has my style.

The world of DJs is very, very male-dominated. I overcame a lot of hardship myself, and in general, in this industry women have more obstacles than men. In the past, a woman DJ was a gimmick, but today we’re taken seriously.

There are many female stars that started here in Tel Aviv, especially in the techno scene. Today, there are more female DJs than ever, and it’s exciting.

Tel Aviv is the ultimate city that never sleeps. At every moment there’s a place to go out. It’s crazy – this is such a small city, and still has every scene out there: hip hop, pop, gay scenes, etc.

Most importantly though, we have the beach. Tel Aviv is my home and my inspiration.

It doesn’t matter how many issues Israel has, Tel Aviv will always welcome you with open arms, for whoever you want to be.
