LAUREN_FLAX_1

When did you start DJing?
1997

First gig in NYC:
Filter 14 (RIP) in the Meatpacking District in 2002 just after moving here.

Favorite party ever played:
Fuji rock up in the mountains of Japan.

Favorite woman DJ:
Good god, thats a tough one. So many to choose from that beat it consistently. I’d have to say DJ Heather.

Best record you’ve ever bought:
Portishead live at Roseland.

How would you define the term Discwoman?
Lady bosses.

Pet peeve when DJing:
Absolutely no requests taken. Ever. Not even from Oprah.

Do you dance when you DJ?
Always! I feel it as much as (I hope) the crowd does.

Can you DJ when wasted?
Yep.

What’s the best compliment you’ve ever gotten?
You look as if Carrie Bradshaw and Skrillex had a baby.

Place you’d like to play:
I’m going to have to agree with my bandmate here and say Ibiza. It’s weird that I haven’t been yet. She can handle the foam party tho.

Something you want everyone to know about you:
I love bodega socks.
