I’m a DJ born and bred in Singapore. Currently Dj-ing at Altimate, Ce La Vi, Empire. Was trained in Amsterdam, at the Pioneer DJ school and was an ex resident DJ at clubs in Shanghai and Macau before moving back to Singapore. Am also a whisky lover!
What is your proudest achievement so far?
I’ll have a hard time answering if I have to pick one. I am proud of so many things! One of it is to launch Open Decks Night at Empire Sky Lounge, supporting and nuturing young aspiring DJs.
And more recently, headlining at Siloso Beach Party (four consecutive years in a row – can’t be more happy and grateful for that).
How is a typical day like for yourself?
I am currently committed to Empire where I manage their events and music programme and the rest of my free time, I am devoted to my music and shows. A typical day would be waking up (searching for my first cup of coffee), then heading to office, work, meetings, work, meetings, and checking out music. It’s quite repetitive when it comes to work but always exciting for me.
There’s something new to discover everyday.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
The acknowledgement – ‘Your passion will take you far’
Where do you get your DJ inspiration from?
Everywhere; online music platforms, concerts, music videos, my DJ friends. Everything contributes.
Have you been in an embarrassing moment that is funny now when you look back?
Yes. It was at my first DJ show in Amsterdam. Something I’d never forget. I begged a DJ friend to stand right next to me and not leave till I finished just in case I screwed things up.
Every time he started drifting away from the booth, I started panicking. It was really nerve wrecking and I was definitely looking quite stupid. XD
If you could choose to DJ at any event or location in the world, where will it be?
Coachella and EDC (keeping my hopes up! X).
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Trying to strike a conversation with the things they think they know about me, but with all the wrong information.
Oh, and promising me a future when I don’t even know them (offering financial support, family and kids, world tours… etc. – all sort of strange things)
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Erica. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Having confidence and poise.
