LAUREN_DILLARD_1

When did you start DJing?
2006

First gig in NYC:
It was in the basement of Niagara bar in the East Village. I had a short-lived and very strange night with my friend Neon Music down there called “Sharkbite”, we specialized in gabba and italo disco.

Favorite party ever played:
Berghain in Berlin. CREEP played there with good friend Planningtorock. The crowd was amazing and so was the sound!

Favorite woman DJ:
I love Nguzunguzu, which is a half-female group. I could listen to their mixes on loop forever… very diverse selection. Also, I love watching Venus X DJ.

Best record you’ve ever bought:
Light Asylum

How would you define the term DISCWOMAN? 
A female compact disc player?

Pet peeve when DJing:
A stranger came into the booth and tried to plug their iPhone into my computer during a set once, that was pretty annoying.

Do you dance when you DJ?
I rarely dance

Can you DJ when wasted?
Yes

What’s best compliment you’ve ever gotten? 
For me, seeing people enjoy themselves during one of my sets is the best compliment.

Place you’d like to play? 
A foam party in Ibiza

Something you want everyone to know about you:
