Here’s to the Future
Give DJ MONO FUTURE a salute.
It never fails to surprise us, that in this modern day world, DJing has pretty much remained a male dominated industry. MONO FUTURE is representing all the ladies, for which there is a distinct lack of, in the DJ world…and we love her a lil bit for that. She’s big on the Copenhagen DJ scene, she’s talented and she also happens to be a regular of ours. This month, DJ MONO FUTURE will be swinging by our Halloween House Party. This is our chat.
What gigs/ projects have you got coming up for 2013/14?
I’m a resident DJ at Generator Copenhagen. My next gig there will be on Saturday 26 October 2013 (Generator Halloween Party). Right now I’m working on a project involving GOA music.
How did you come up with the name ….?
I am deaf in one ear. I hear everything in mono. The future is bright, right?;)
If you could collaborate with anyone who would it be?
Frédéric Chopin. He has written some incredible classical work.
Have you done a lot of travelling with and outside work?
The piano is my ‘native language’. I started playing the piano when I was five. I’ve played at various concerts in Denmark, Sweden, the UK, and other European countries. In recent years, my interest in electronic music has grown, and one year ago, I started MONO FUTURE. In August this year, I played a gig at Hybrid Club Vera in Seoul, South Korea, together with Niko Yu and Bgeezy. I loved it, and the crowd was freaking amazing!
What age were you when you first got into music?
I started attending piano lessons when I was five, practising the ‘Suzuki Method’.
Who inspired you musically when you were young?
The person who has influenced me musically and inspired me the most is my piano teacher, Esther Lund Madsen.
What do you like about playing at Generator?
The bar and lounge. The atmosphere at Generator Copenhagen is amazing. Every day, the guests vary because it’s a hostel. You can never predict how the night will be and what style of music they prefer you to play. That means you have to improvise a lot. For example, last Saturday, I had prepared some real badass dubstep remixes for the Generator party, but all I could think of playing when I met the crowd was… pachanga!
How did you come to play at the hostel?
Niko Yu and Michelle Exarhos introduced me to the amazing bar of Generator in the heart of Copenhagen.
What instrument would you most like to own?
My Steinway & Sons grand piano.
What aspects of your life do you take inspiration from?
Do you get days where you feel like you’ve hit a brick wall creatively?
Every morning before coffee.
What motto do you live your life by?
Everyday, once a day, give yourself a present.
