- Please could you tell us about your background and how it leads to the music you play today?
I moved to London 10 years ago from a very small town in Poland where I grew up listening to hip hop and R&B music.
I modelled at first but soon realised that the castings weren’t for me so decided to DJ. I always knew that it was something I was born to do. I love expressing myself through my favourite music and sharing the passion with the crowd!
- Where are you based?
I play around central London a lot! Libertine’s VIP room is always so much fun and you can catch me there every Saturday! I also have my own club night called ‘GET LIT’ which is on every first Friday of the month at Lights of Soho. I throw it monthly together with fashion stylist Alexis Knox which is so amazing and always so lit! I also do lots of guest dj gigs round London and dj at the fashion parties!
- How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard it before?
It’s a mixture of old school R&B and hip-hop! It’s mainly 90’s focused but mixed with a bit of noughties. I love mixing it with new stuff so you can defo hear lots of trap and grime!
- What or who has been the biggest singular influence on your music?
Pharrell Williams &TheNeptunes!!! I love all their productions! Missy Elliott has always been very inspiring to me I love every single album and her music videos! I also love Timbaland , Dr Dre and Swizz Beatz productions.
