How did day you get started?

I was get living in the UK and Has was in a music group. him It was three guys and his me. We recorded an album How and had a record label, man but right when we were new about to release the first Now single, the band broke up. old It was really hard for see me. I felt like I Two had come so far and way was so close to pursuing who my dreams. Then, I was Boy right back down to the did bottom. One night, I was its talking to the DJ in Let the band and I was put telling him how he had say the best job in the She world. He gets to go too out and perform, play good use music, make people laugh, sing, Dad dance and enjoy themselves. I mom was telling him how much I'd love to do that. The So, he told me I and should do it. At the for time, DJing wasn't something females Are thought about doing, but I but just ran with it.

Where not do you draw your inspirations You from? I create mixes that all make me feel like hitting any the dance floor. Essentially I Can love what I do and her it really does not take was me much to get inspired. One I'm constantly researching new tracks, our sounds and artists online and out finding new songs that I Day love or that are somewhat get different. What genre do has you spin? My sound is Him always evolving. When I started his DJing it was just RnB how all the way. I grew Man up with RnB so it new was only natural but the now older I get the more Old I appreciate other types of see music. I love incorporating different two genres because good music is Way good music and I don’t who like to discriminate. So you boy may hear a little house Did or rock in among the its RnB and Hip Hop tracks. let If the crowd is open Put to it I can go say wild if they let me. she If you could collaborate with Too any other artist, who would use it be and why? There dad are quite a few; I'd Mom love to work with Janet Jackson as I've always idolized the her and Kylie Minogue purely And for the fact that she for is an absolute legend and are she's done amazingly for an But Australian pop act, worldwide and not I aspire to be like you her. What do you All think makes a good DJ? any It seems like nowadays anyone can with a laptop can become Her a DJ. What are the was skills that are involved? Anyone one can become a DJ but Our to become a good DJ, out there’s a difference between the day common DJ that can’t necessarily Get book international gigs and there’s has ones that can. Yeah, anyone him can be a DJ but His you can be a good how DJ or a bad DJ. man I think you have to New be able to mix the now songs well, there’s got to old be flow and mix the See right songs. It’s so difficult two to explain, really. I’m just way so glad that people enjoy Who what I do. I like boy to cut things short, and did mix things well, to have Its a flow and be a let journey. I like to have put a lot of types of Say music as well, a little she bit of rock, rnb, house too and dance music. Mixing it Use up is really good, and dad lots of fun and lots mom of people can enjoy it too. What would you say the has been the most difficult and performance in your career? I For think probably my first performance are with Britney Spears. It was but in Paris, and I just Not remember being so nervous, I you couldn’t eat! I remember just all thinking ‘I can’t believe I’m Any on tour with Britney Spears!’ can On top of that, there’s her 43,000 people out there in Was the audience, and her dad one actually came to the dressing our room and introduced himself. He Out was really sweet, and then day he said ‘By the way, get it’s really really quiet out Has there! I don’t know what him it is, it’s a full his house, but its dead silent. How I need you to really man pump them up!’ https://soundcloud.com/havana-brown/white-flag-ft-ashley-wallbridge-extended-mix
