Introduce yourself? Hometown? Where do you currently reside?
Hi I’m Nicki. I’m originally a Ft. Lauderalien. Currently living right on the border between Bushwick and Ridgewood.
If you could place a dj booth anywhere in the world… where would it be & what would you play?
I would put it on the outermost ring of Saturn and play mid-2000s dubstep.
Let’s play a pipipi game… I give you a word and you give me a track!
Advice to beginning dj’s?
I’m a new dj too! First off, if you’re just starting to play out, definitely go early and check everything out and make sure you know where everything is and feel comfortable. Otherwise, I would say don’t try to play what’s trendy or what you think other people will like. Just play what you like even if it’s cheesy or seemingly wack. Trust yourself! And if you fuck up who cares, just keep going. Don’t compare yourself to friends/acquaintances/famous people who have been doing it for 10+ years.
Favorite club & why?
Bossa Nova Civic Club. You already know (◕ ˬ ◕✿)

Listen to 11:11 in your mix… what color do you see?
Most underrated artist at the moment?
AAAA (Cuatro-A) from Mexico City.
What would you like to see in the future for the dance community?
I would like to see more of the DJs I love in the community making tracks! It’s hard to get into, and expensive, but I would love to see that happen. It would be great to see some sort of platform to educate/learn from one another in this area.

Junq- Lila Dreams
Favorite late night snack?
Ravioli. It doesn’t happen as often as I would like.
