Could you please introduce yourself to our listeners?

Hi, my name is Elisabeth and I’m a DJ from Berlin.

What’s the idea behind your mix?

I wanted to make this mix for a while, I had some records that had kind of a special atmosphere and merged different styles in a unique way so I wanted to put them together.

How did you approached that concept?

I spent quite some time thinking about the selection and recorded different versions, in the end I chose this one.

When and where did you started djing how has it evolved over the time?

That’s a long time ago. I knew I wanted to be a DJ since I was a teenager. I enjoyed compiling mix tapes yet I just had a cassette recorder so I wanted to improve that. In the end it took me years until I tried to play vinyls for the first time. It was at an after hour party, a friend of mine was djing there and I think I asked him if I could try it. It somehow worked out and while we were playing together a friend of ours came and booked us for his party. He had just started a weekly party series in a club in Berlin and in the beginning there were almost no people so I used these events to practice.

Since then, I had different projects, tried to figure out what I wanted to do and changed styles a lot. At the moment I’m starting to feel more and more comfortable with what I’m doing, it makes sense to me.

Is there a record that triggered your interest in collecting music or even start to perform in front of an audience?

I don’t remember when I started collecting music, but my first contact with the electronic music scene and electronic music in general happened when I started going on DnB and Jungle parties as a teen. It was an intense time and I developed the wish to perform in front of a crowd immediately. Oh and this was my favourite record at that time:

What do your parents think about what you do?

Good question! I have no idea.

What are your projects for the next time?

Dig, practice and work on my own music.
