It’s a rare commodity to find a hot female DJ like you. How many numbers do you get a night?
HA! Well, I have a boyfriend so no phone numbers for me, more like people requesting Katy Perry or Britney Spears.
What are some of your big musical and fashion influences?
The music I listen to at home is very different to what I pay when I DJ, it took me a while to realize that you are there to make people have fun, not to impress them with all the "cool" music you listen to. Right now I am really into Hip-Hop, I am not too excited about new rock bands these days.
Fashion wise I am influenced my the people around me, my friends. I love seeing what excites them.
What drew you to DJing?
Money! Just kidding. I have always been a dj of sorts, I have a huge collection of music that started with records (yes I am that old) and because of the computer it makes it so much fun/ easier to have your whole collection at your finger tips. I get a rush out of making people dance.
What are some of your favorite venues to spin?
Anywhere my friends are willing to go! Events are the most fun because it's a new experience every time. A new challenge to make people happy.
What’s you favorite/least favorite tune?
I am really into the soundtrack to the movie "Drive," there is some amazing new music on there. People love when I play it.
My LEAST favorite is a song called "Hello" By Martin Solveig. It makes me crazy when djs play it!
If tables were turned (literally), what’s your “go to” move on the dancefloor?
If I hear the song "Age of Consent" by New Order I HAVE to dance!
Which passion came first and how do the two careers compliment each other?
I guess they happened around the same time, DJing became away to afford doing what I love, which is making clothes.
Do you wear clothes from your collections to a show?
Yes! I think I wear something Sophomore almost everyday!
Have you ever DJed your own fashion show?
We did a show in New Orleans and I got to pick the music which was so much fun! And I do all the music for our videos.
What do you have planned for the future, in both design and music?
I am opening a store soon, so that has taken up most of my time. And as far as music I am djing a lot (thanks to 4am) and just going to continue juggling both!
