This mix is a hype 30 minutes of beats and sounds that makes us feel positive, forward thinking and all about the future. They’ll be playing our party this weekend in Oakland. Peep their quick Q+A below:
When did you start DJing?
First gig in the bay:
New World Dyorder’s second party at Crate in Downtown Oakland. A party called .WAV .
Favorite party ever played:
I have two fave parties for two separate reasons; one where a bunch of ppl came (Quay Dash and Scorpion Warrior also played) and my computer had a seizure, I literally pulled songs out of my ass. Another, where I did an amazing set but nobody was really at the event but I had a blast playing for the few people who showed up. It was one of my most fun sets at Qilombo and I didn’t think to record it so it was like an awesome lived experience.
Venus X, I briefly interned for her and helped out with finding dope music, even then she was someone I really looked up to as an artist and just straight up go getter. I also have been inspired by people like Honey Dijon.
Best record you’ve ever bought
Fiona Apple, “When the pawn”. Paper Bag was my favorite on that. It just really spoke to me at the time, I was very angsty, and young.
“Pet peeve when DJing”
When people interrupt to chat me up when I’m trying to mix. Like it’s actually really hard to carry on a conversation.
Do you dance when you DJ?
I totally dance when I mix, I love music, I love to dance and it helps me keep on beat. But sometimes I get carried away.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever gotten?
That I was a goddess and that it felt as though I put a spell on the dance floor.
Place you’d like to play:
I’d like to get the chance to play somewhere dark and scary, like a dark club in Berlin or totally contrary like a giant beach party in Ibiza.
Something you want everyone to know about you:
That through music I have finally found a sense of belonging, and a way to express myself to the world and that I am thankful.
