"Of The main Thing is to have an Interaction with the people and to give Them a good time."
How did you get started with Djing and that one thing that made you want to become a LIVE PAINTER?
Well DJing happened back in 2006, after being a model in Germany and moving to the Middle East. I started doing the Live painting since 2016 as a new project to inspire more people during corporate events. today, i could not only be dj and paint in a nightclub, but at any bar venue, car show etc. this is a great new concept! There are many live painters, speedpainters but none of them do paintig besides Djing.
You were born in Germany, but reside in Dubai. What can you tell us about clubbing and nightlife Dubai? Do you have any nightlife related suggestions for first-time visitors?
Dubai is so different from most places in the world, you find everything deep house places and very commercial R&B clubs. But I love it and whatever you like you can go for... I would say, definitely check out the 360 club lounge at Burj Al Arab, amazing view and good for warm ups. Then if you wanna go in a bigger Club go to Sensation Crowne Plaza, mostly R&B but I do Saturdays there if I am in town and people love it!
What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?
My biggest dream was always, traveling around the world, which I did and still doing. Then building a family besides my career. My last goal was becoming a well known DJ in the region ( Middle East , Dubai) which I successfully achieved. My next goal is becoming a well known artist and painter.
Everybody always thinks being a DJ means drinking a lot of Alcohol. Is it true please tell us more about this rumor?
Well I have 2 alcoholic drinks at max. I focus on drinking a lot of water in order to perform well. If I am drunk Im scared to fall while Im dancing lol and also drunken DJs are unacceptable. I do prefer vodka tonic even though I am German I do hate beer.
Whats the most enjoyable part of your job?
Meeting nice people from different cultures & seeing the world, getting flowers and travelling with my asian agent Cecilia from BCBG, always fun.
What was the best and the worst gig you ever played and what was the funniest thing ever occurred during any of your performances?
My best gig, hmm there are so many I cant really tell each place is unique.
The worst one was when the stage crashed down during an festival, but thank god I was lucky and kept on playing as nothing happen.
Do you think producing your own track is a key success factor in order to be a number one DJ?
Yes, of course it is very important to have your own tracks. I try to produce new songs every 2 to 3 years. My new song Higher is coming out very soon you can listen to it on my Facebook page (female.dj). I will be back in Thailand every 2 to 3 month, as Illuzion club in Patong will promote me further. This is where I played my new song as well while dancing on the DJ booth.
You are first female Live Painter DJ. What are your other hidden talents?
I can cook. Would love to open my own restaurant or cafe one day with my own art and music maybe.
You had a successful career as a model, what led you from the catwalk to the DJ booth and how did you get in touch with electronic dance music in the first place?
I always were in touch with music due my model jobs, and then back in 2006 I moved to Dubai because of love, then I got bored of just being a housewife and model so I decided to start DJing, 2008 I had my first gig in a club and it was amazing! 800 people and I was so nervous... from there everything has begun.... I am very thankful for everyone who believed in me!
You travel a lot. What countries or cities do you like most of all and why? Is there any place in the world you was impressed greatly?
Thailand, actually all Asia is my favourite, but also Africa, South America , North Amercia, Europe, ofocurse I love my base in the middle east. I am very grateful that I have so many followers from all over the world, I love every single one because without them I wouldnt travel so much or having in my up and downs "privately" a reason to not give up!
Sabrina its no secret that you look exceptional so please tell us what is your secret to stay in such a good shape?
Oh, thank you. Actually since I stopped modeling, I gained around 10 kgs. As a model, I used to be the slim type with no curves at all. Now I got at least woman curves which I like. I feel comfortable and sexy with it and I think it suits me better.
Do you think that «DJ world» is men's world? In your opinion is it harder for girl to become famous DJ?
It's hard for every DJ! Every ARTIST! You need to be at the right time at the right place and you do need to know how to market yourself out there, I do all the marketing alone, Sometimes people ask me how many employees I got for all social media. Just my mum and me.
