about

“I only started DJing regularly fairly recently. When I first started making music I didn’t have turntables. It was a couple years later when I got into club music that I learnt to mix and had my first DJ gig, but for a long time I focused more on the studio/production side of things rather than playing out. It wasn’t until people started recognising my music on a larger scale that there was a demand and I began DJing more. But the more I did it the more I grew to love it. Now I wouldn’t be able to give one up for the other. The more you DJ the better you get at it and just like anything else it’s an on going process till you stop. The understanding of how to work a crowd and create moments on a dance floor is something you could never learn from mixing in your bedroom. You kind of just have to get thrown in to the deep end and learn first hand.”
And she’s not about to stop evolving any time soon. “My album, which I’m working on at the moment, has moved completely away from house music,” she says. “I suppose, in a way, this mix is preparing people for what they are going to hear next from me. My music will continue to get more diverse. There are a lot of vocals on the mix. I really enjoy working with vocalists and people might be surprised that 90% of my album is vocals tracks. I find it more interesting when there’s lots of different things going on”
