What was your first electronic music event?

My first rave was EDC 2009 in LA!

What/who influenced you to attend your first event?

My cousin and I really love electronic music. There were cultural influences especially since we are both Polish and spend our time in Europe in the summer. We have grown up with techno music especially at the clubs and we went to EDC.

What is one moment from an event that was special and why?

Ultra Music Festival 2013 when Swedish House Mafia closed the show and it was their final show. It was the most amazing/emotional night. I was in tears and really was blessed to attend this event. It was so incredible because I was with my closest friends and the memories we made are unforgettable. I really met so many people who shared the love and the happiness that I had that night. That set blew my mind and I am so grateful I got to be part of that moment with SHM.

It will forever and always be my favorite moment in rave history for me.

What is your favorite festival or event?

EDC, Ultra and Beyond Wonderland are my top 3

What is your favorite electronic song and why?

“Save The World” – Swedish House Mafia Every time I listen to this song no matter how I am feeling or what mood I am in this song just keeps me smiling and dancing. I have high energy while listening to this song and never want the night to end. Dancing to this song at Ultra being it the last song of the night made that whole experience and weekend worth it. Every time this song comes on I just turn it up and jam out.

“Levels” – Avicii is always a go to because it has everything in that song. The way the song flows and drops really makes me want to party and keep dancing!

Who are your favorite artists?

Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, Avicii, Tiesto, Dillon Francis, Galantis, David Guetta, Hardwell, Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond, The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Getter

What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?

My identity in the electronic community is “TRIXIE” which is my alter ego. My identity is free-spirited, open, free and someone who is confident and loved. In the electronic music community I feel very positive and loved by others around me. I am the person that I wish I could be every day. I am not judged or judge others and I feel confident, beautiful, and happy. I share my love to others, I respect myself, respect others and just want to be who I wish I could be. I feel free, not obsessed with cultural norms or the negative influences of society. For once I can express myself by dressing up, spreading positive vibes and meeting new people. I love dancing and not giving a fuck. Dancing is so fun and I love vibing with the artist, crowd and music and enjoying myself.

Is there anything else you would like to add about yourself for the readers?

I’m a Sagittarius, part of the ZTA Sorority, and of course PLUR!
