What do you think about Future Bass and the recent fusion between EDM and pop music?
I am very happy about this fusion, I am a great pop fan myself and have always, even way before it was a trend, implemented pop songs on my sets and it always went well. So maybe I set the trend haha
How do you select the music you play during your live shows?
I of course do pre select tracks for my gigs, based on expected crowd and location, however it always comes down to the people, how we interact, what I feel they would want to hear and how we connect through the music, being that said I don't think I ever played a set twice or have I ever stuck with a playlist if I made one.
Clubs vs Festivals, which one you prefer? and why?
Festivals, sorry to say, most DJs might disagree, but I love the huge crowds, the massive energy and YES, specially the demand for poppy, commercial known tracks which lets the crowd go off, are exactly the things I love to see.
Which kind of equipment you like to use in your studio? analog or digital?
Mainly digital, always trying to play with new stuff and my co producers are very techy guys, who must have the newest equipment on the market to create the most unique and also up to date sounds.
You visited many places, what's the difference between play a show in your country and in Asia?
I enjoy playing everywhere, really I never had a gig where I was thinking that it was a bad experience for me. Every show is special and I get something out of it every single time. But yes, most of the time I am touring Asia recently, so I think I have a special connection to the crowd there ;)
You recently have been voted FDJ #17 in the World by a relatively important Top 100 for female DJs, what's your comment on this big success?
I am surprised and happy at a time, I am thanking all my fans, followers and friends for believing in me, supporting me (super thanks to my team) and most of all for having voted. People need to know that such polls are a reflection of ones popularity and even if there are many other talents with more achievements and or followers, if you don't get them to vote, it is not bringing results. Anyway, a big THANK YOU to anyone who has voted for me.
Stay tuned for more from KATTYQ!
