Essentials to my peace of mind and career as an aspiring Vinyl DJ.
Why does female music taste matter?
In my opinion, women are the forerunners of music and art. Like Beyonce said, who run the world? “Girls” !
As a DJ, do you feel it’s important to have a record collection even if you don’t use them for sets?
I think it is very important, because you are able to create sounds and experiences thru “ undiscovered” music that may not have been heard by most people.
