Q&A

  • What I’m Usually Up To:
    I live in the air. A cabin crew job takes me across the world, DJ tours keep me on planes. When I'm not working on one, more hopping planes to go see my puppy and husband who live in India. A lot of music work happens on the go coz of this, and my headphones are my best friend! Cooking plant-based meals, environmental activism, tending to my garden keeps me sane.
  • My Favourite Food:
    Mexican...I can eat a mean guacamole every day!
  • On My Bucket List:
    To play in Berghain. To play a LIVE set. To dive into the modular synth world. To play at the Pornceptual party. Not necessarily in that order.
  • My Deserted Island Disc:
    That's hard to pick but right now I'd take this one...LUCY & RØDHÅD'S WSNWG001
