Introduce yourself? Hometown? Where do you currently reside? 1 fun fact about yourself?

very small danish village. berlin. i eat my snacks with chopsticks.

Describe the vibe of your ideal party? Space? Smell? Drinks? Anything you can think of 😉

Dream b2b?

i am too caught up in narrating my set that b2b makes me nervous.

Ideal booth set up?

2x ipod nano 3rd gen, 1x aux cable.

Guilty pleasure track?

maybe i like anime themes a bit too much.

i also made a remix of this fanfic anthem that i am too embarrassed to upload.

Why do you think it’s important to DJ? And/of why have you chosen to become a DJ? How long do you think you will keep it up?

to make up for the lack of fun and surprising music at parties. personally to soothe my ocd categorizing music and to justify hoarding tracks. a good dj set is like a public service.

Let’s play a pipipi game… I give you a situation & you give me a track

Losing your virginity in 2040

Washing your anxiety ridden cat

Track to make your roommate leave you alone

1st track to celebrate the end of quarantine (loud be careful)

debby friday. lorem. caroline polachek or was that last year?

Most underrated artist at the moment?

ana caprix 😌

What is your prediction on the next music genre re-vamp 2020?

vocals even more pitched. even more shattered glass. best shattered glass is on kate bush “babooshka”. or even better on “mother stands for comfort”.

Describe the vibe of your first DJ set?

playing on an ironing board placed on a shopping cart in a tunnel for drunk teens.

Describe the first moment where you had an epiphany about your love for music?

being a kid playing mars volta on my guitar instead of going to school.

Any advice about what to do with free time during this moment of social distancing?

be weary of the establishment. new models podcast.

What would you like to see in the future for the dance community?

could be less immersive and more entertaining.

Advice to beginning djs?
