How did you start?

i was collecting allot of music and decided to ask my friend for a chance to spin at her night in silver lake, la. she allowed me and it snowballed from there. i has some “selecting” experience before, but i would hardly call it djing. my first dj experience in a bar was in 2006. insane. was pretty bad i assume. it was in tel aviv where kids could get into bars easily, no drinking age limit.

Where are you based?

now in berlin mostly and partly la. i still have my party in la, into the woods. i love it!!!!

What are you working on right now?

im in the studio during the week trying to make some sounds that would become tracks and then hopefully played out. otherwise i try to have a normal person life and i also work on my jewelry line “myrrh jewelry”

What is your gear setup?

i have a waldurf microwave, electron octatrack, electron heat, moog minitaur and the rest is “in the box”

What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?

i like to sit in the sun and eat food like the good Mediterranean woman that i am, which is hard in germany but i make it work somehow. but when im not gigging i guess i really try to take it easy to balance it out and stay healthy. otherwise i would have lost it already. it helps me be in good shape when i do have to travel and gig.

How would you describe your music genre?

i guess i am more leaning into techno but i so spin house and there is a influence of it in my sound. im not too sure, ill leave that to other people to define.

Do you know any music theory?

i studied some instruments like classical piano and also music production in collage as well as opera singing but i pretty much forgot how to read notes as i am out of practice. i guess i could pick it up if i tried.

What are your plans for the future?

to be healthy and to go deeper into myself when i create any form of art.

How did you get into music?

i had two older sister that were very into music and i followed their lead. i just took it much further.,

What are you listening to at the moment?

at home, i will put dance music records allot, but also i play allot of older pop and rock music, and a good amount of hip hop. i cant listen to 4/4 all day, its a bit much 🙂

Who are your top 5 influences and icons?

oh man, i cant think of 5 … but i love anyone that is there for creating something true to themselves and doesnt give a fuck about the rest.

When and were are you playing next?

in berlin! for hypercolur aug 2nd 🙂
