When did you start DJing? 
I started in summer 2013. Then I’ve learn who to play with vinyls last summer.

First gig in Montreal: 
I did the first part of my friend STWO and Nouvel Âge in Belmont

Favorite party ever played: 
I’d say the last 24 Hour Of Vinyl in Montreal. I didn’t sleep, stayed at the party the whole time and I was DJing at 9am with my two favs: Mat Coates and DJ Asma. Good times!>

Favorite woman DJ:
Kronika is one of the illest in the game. Shout out to Eden Hagos as well!

Best record you’ve ever bought: 
I’d say Hollywood Recording by Sa-Ra Creative Partners.

How would you define the term DISCWOMAN? 
Portable discs were all our best friends back in the day. I used to travel the whole city to go to school everyday. In certain culture, woman share the knowledge from generation to generation. Now, as we are DISCWOMAN, the knowledge has to be passed on by all these good DJs.

Pet peeve when DJing: Don’t ask me for some Drake, I will make an evil laugh and ignore you.

Do you dance when you DJ? YES, I’m a trained dancer. So yes yes yes, I dance when I do my transition and when the song goes on. Dance dance dance.

Can you DJ when wasted? 
I drink to be in the same universe as everyone, but I’m more of a stoner DJ.

What’s the best compliment you’ve ever gotten? 
High Klassified manager said something super sweet to me last weekend. “You’re like the one who put all these cats (Kaytranada, High Klassified etc) on the map, you are like the mama of the scene” That made me smile.

Place you’d like to play: 
I would cry if they give me a gig at Low End Theory in L.A. I’ve been there 3 times and this place is like mecca to me.

Something you want everyone to know about you:
I’M THE BEST SELEKTA UNDER 25.
