How would you describe your style? Edgy but feminine; I wear a lot of black but always throw in something delicate to soften it up.
What are your thoughts on the dance music culture right now? I love dance music, which is a blessing since it's so ubiquitous these days - my mom went to a Bar Mitzvah last week where they were playing Skrillex.
Favorite track to play? This is a tough question because the answer is always changing, it depends on the night and the crowd. My favorite track is whatever is going to get the people moving and feeling good in that moment.
