How and when did you first get into DJing?
since I started listening to music all I liked was electronic. I was always was in charge to select music and bring my ipod to every party I went with my friends back in school. I guess I always new I wanted to DJ, so when I was 18 I decided to learn mixing techniques and started to pursue my passion.
We LOVE your mixes. How would you describe your sound?
Thanks! with KICKS (my recent radio show) and my live performances I’m searching to deliver a clean sound, keeping up to what house used to be like once. I’m from Venezuela so my roots are latin. I always tend to go for a tribal vibe every time I’m spinning; you’ll always enjoy fresh house music, and if the moment allows it I will ascend into a groovy mood with some progressive house.
What does KIKA mean?
KIKA means you have to dance to my whole set if you come see me! jajaja .. Just kidding. its a nickname for Federica, my real name.
What’s your favorite city to DJ in?
There’s this city in Venezuela, San Cristobal. They really know how to party. But I’m sure if you ask any DJ they’ll agree with me that every place has something special, and the coolest thing about traveling and having the opportunity to share with new cultures is having a space to express yourself with music and share a good time with different people.
We hear you’re a big swimwear fan! What’s your favorite swim brand?
I aaamm because I love the beach! Minimale Animale, Boys & Arrows and Acacia.
What do you love to do when you’re not DJing?
I love going to the beach with a good book to read.
Who’s your MCM?
Bradley Cooper, obviously
What’s your favorite party spot in Miami?
I enjoy going to Bardot. Good music.
