DISCWOMAN #7: BETA LIBRAE

BETA_LIBRE_1

When did you start DJing?
2009-2010 with a group of friends in Kansas City.

First gig in NYC:
Ace Hotel lobby which is funny because it was the most money I ever made from DJing and nobody dances or realizes you’re there.

Favorite party ever played:

All the ladies nights at Bossa Nova over the past year. I’ve learned sooo much, made sick friends, it’s just the best!

Favorite woman DJ:
Terre Thaemlitz if that counts. Otherwise Umfang because she has supported me more than anyone and is a great DJ.

Best record you’ve ever bought: 
Maurizio – M6

How would you define the term DISCWOMAN?

A lady sharing her knowledge and educating others through music selection.

Pet peeve when DJing:
When someone books you as their guest for their party but you only play from like 10-11pm then you’re done and the residents go on. Why even have a guest if you’re afraid to give up the spotlight for a few hours?

Do you dance when you DJ?
Maybe a slow motion sway.

Can you DJ when wasted?
Not sure. I tend to lose track of time and space, but I think that happens sober too.

What’s the best compliment you’ve ever gotten?
i think just seeing the same faces over and over. It’s a compliment without words. The strangers become your friends and you know they are genuinely there because they enjoy the music and they remember you.

Place you’d like to play:
I’ve never been able to DJ outside or around nature so that would be real nice.

Something you want everyone to know about you:

I’d like to share some music I’ve been working on with you very soon!
