Hi, how are you today?

It is a great day every day I wake on this side of the grass. Lol!

When did you start DJing - and what or who were your early influences?

I started DJing professionally in 2016. My love for music started as a child. The way music can change the entire atmosphere. Grandmaster Flash, MC Lyte, and DJ Spinderella are my influences. I love the way they command the audience.

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

To be successful a DJ needs to be able to know how to read the room and know music with the ability to transition from one track to another seamlessly.

How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?

I listen to everything. This allows me to not limit myself to one style of music. Staying connected to the underground music scene also keeps me up-to-date on the latest trends.

What techniques do you use to engage the audience?

Being a vocal DJ helps keep the audience involved.

What would you say is the most rewarding part of being a DJ?

The most rewarding part of being a DJ is breaking a record and getting new fans for an artist.

What do you usually start with when preparing for a set?

I usually start with a story that I want to convey for the night. What is the theme, and how can the music help paint the picture for the audience.?

What makes you decide to play a particular record during one of your sets? Is there a criterion other than pure subjectivity, for selecting what to play at a gig?

The type of event dictates what tracks I will play at any event. I am a female DJ who does all types of events. A child's party and a cultural wedding would have completely different setlists.

How did you spend your lockdown/pandemic time? What did you accomplish before the entertainment world began to open up again?

I worked through the entire pandemic as an artist and created socially distanced events. I also still DJed and hosted my weekly open mic. During the pandemic, I released my 1st all-woman mixtape entitled Goddess Takeover.

What makes you different from other DJs?

I am a DJ that looks to help artist advance by teaching them business, performance education, and how to market themselves. I love to help others win.

One Last question, when not making music, where can we find you?

When I am not doing music, I am probably traveling, doing poetry, or writing my next book.
