“I like to have elements of progressive house, tech house, tribal house and sometimes some trance.”
1. Describe your sound in a sentence or two.
Currently my main style is Progressive Tribal House with Euphoric and powerful breakdowns with vocals. I like to play unique sounding tunes that dont all sound the same. I make a lot of my own private mashups/edits containing old and new tunes that I love. I also play Tech House.
2. If you had to go to the VMAs who would you bring as a date?
I’ve been thinking of this for a few days and can’t come up with the answer so I would put a few names in a hat.
3. Besides Euphoria, what’s your favourite club night?
The Week in Rio/Sao Paulo are my favourite clubs in Brazil. I love Profile in Dublin and a new favourite is Neds. I was there June Bank Holiday and it was great craic.
I used to play hard house and trance so I still like to incorporate euphoric elements into my sets.
4. Where do you draw musical inspiration from?
At the moment my inspiration comes mostly from Spanish, Mexican, Brazilian and Israeli producers. I used to play hard house and trance so I still like to incorporate euphoric elements into my sets. In my own music productions I like to have elements of progressive house, tech house, tribal house and sometimes some trance.
5. If you had to listen to only one artist for the rest of your life who would it be?
Another very difficult question. I pretty much only listen to dance music and at the moment Offer Nissim is my favourite producer so I would have to go with him at this time.
6. Excluding Ireland, what music scene do you dig the most?
Haha I think everybody who knows me will know the answer to this! Brazil of course! My first time in Brazil was in 2014 and my taste in music was reborn after I went to The Week nightclub in Sao Paulo. I didn’t really know about Tribal House at this stage and I absolutely fell in love with it straight away and decided I would give DJing another go as I had kind of given up at that stage. Ive also had the pleasure of DJing at some of the top clubs in Brazil this year after my success playing there last year. If you had of asked me this question 10 years ago I would have said Ibiza as I was mad for trance music back then and Ibiza was the place to be back in those days!
7. What are the five things you can’t live without?
Tomato Ketchup (Chef is the best)
Acai (Is Life)
8. Describe your ideal date night.
Start off with a meal in a nice Thai Restaurant followed by a few drinks.
9. Who’s the sexiest guy you know in real life?
Well obviously my husband Maik.
10. What’s your go to karaoke song?
I have been known to get up on stage and sing Tina Turner – Simply The Best and make a show of myself haha.
