N: Hello Kosovo Clubbing team. My Name ist Nathalie, 34 years young :) I'm born and i live in a small but lovely country, called Luxembourg.
* When did your journey into electronic music, started / What inspires you, through this journey?
N: I was around 16 or 17, when I was for the first time at Luxembourg's number 1 club, in question of electronic music (the "Cafedelagare"). I remember the atmosphere, the sound, it was magical. From that moment on, I went every Saturday to their events and became a technohead lol... I started mixing when my boyfriend at that time, bought his first turntables. He was sticking on it the whole time and that's why I started lol. I am still very grateful to him.
* Could you provide us some information, regarding Strange Agency, Purelist?

N: Currently, I love to play with 3 Pioneer CDJ's and my Roland TR-8.

N: Pretty difficult. My most played, are still Vegim & Flekitza – Rumble In The Jungle (released on Vezotronik) and Nina Kraviz – Ghetto Kraviz (Steve Rachmad's Jack Mix, released on Rekids). I know those are not very dark, LOL, but those tracks put the dancefloor on fire...always :)

N: I had a blast at BASStore. Despite a few problems with the equipement, the crowd was responding and everyone was in a very good mood. I love the location and their statements on the walls. I would love to come back.
* Your opinion about Kosovo's artists ?
N: I know only a few, to be honest. Vegim and Flekitza, owners of TMM Records, they are very close friends of mine and I love their music, I play a lot of their productions. I had the opportunity to meet Jehonë, while I was playing at Puls festival (Prishtina. 2014), she's a good dj. Last but not least, Tatu (from Albania), a good artist who totally controls the crowd.
* Do you like our clubbing culture?
N: Always fun, very friendly crowd... I always feel very comfortable, there.
* What can we expcet from you in the future?
N: Finally, my first release is coming out, on Simina Grigoriu's label, Kuukou Records. It's a collab with my Strange Agency buddy, Matt Heize aka Xentrix. I'm very honored that he liked to work with me and i learned a lot in a short time. Now my future plans are to put my focus on production. A few release are also planned on different Labels....I'm very excited about this.
