Can you tell us about the ideas and inspirations behind this mix?

A full moon ritual by the water.

As far as you remember, what was your first song or band you fell in love with when you were a child or teenager?

I think it was „Turkish march“ by Mozart – I know it’s not a song and Mozart is not a band, nevertheless a hit. At the same time everything by Otis Redding. I was divided between classical repertoire and R&B.

Do you remember your first encounter with electronic music and can you elaborate on that?

Three events occurred before I decided to buy my first synthesizer: 1.) I listened to Autobahn by Kraftwerk for the first time, 2.) Pan sonic played live in Rome, and 3.) I watched Liquid Sky.

Tell us about one of your worst DJ experiences.

Urban Spree sometime during 2016, it’s my turn to play, the DJ before has played mostly mainstream Hip Hop. The CD players have no CDs slots and I don’t have a USB stick. Luckily I had vinyl records with me and when I finally started to play, the bartender announced that he will close in 10 minutes, because there are not enough customers. The shortest and worst DJ set I’ve ever played.

Tell us about one of your best DJ experiences.

Last Diapason event in Berlin. This is the party I host once every two months at Sameheads, where I am resident DJ. It became my favorite in town, cozy, deep and with surprisingly good livesets. Generally the atmosphere is spontaneously feminine and intimate.

Favourite BPM:

From 80 to no BPM.

Sharing is caring.

A great opening track for a DJ set:

A guilty pleasure:

Our last featured artist Welia from Vienna would like to know what inspires you the most about the city you live in?

The modesty, the grey sky and the democratic buildings, I like the no-glam side of Berlin.

Get in touch with our next artist Lucia Kagrmanyan from Vienna. What would you like to know about her?

Hey Lucia, pleasure to meet you here again. My question is, what do you think about eclecticism in music?
