DOING IT IN AN OLD-SCHOOL STYLE – MISS MONIQUE

What have you learned in the music scene as a female DJ/Producer?

When I started my career it was really hard to be a female DJ, no one takes you seriously, but nowadays I think it’s changing bit by bit, people are getting used to female DJ’s.

Mind Games Podcast?

MGP it’s my own radio show and was started in 2013. I’m very proud of this part of work, as most DJ’s/producers promote themselves through their music; I’m actually doing it the old-school style through a radio show. People around the world know me not because my music but through Mind Games Podcast, and now I have more than 8 million views on YouTube through my radio show.

Would you say being under a popular Record label has an effect to make it big in the music scene?

I think it helps a lot, but it’s not the main thing. I know a lot of good producers which are under good label but they are just seating in their studios and don’t have any gigs as DJ’s. So it depends what exactly you want to have on the highest point of your career. A popular record label doesn’t guarantee you success. 

Your musical breakthrough and how did it all go about?

I’m still working on it but I felt huge changes in my career in 2017 when one of my videos got first million views on YouTube. 

How’s the dance scene in Ukraine and different experiences?

Unfortunately the dance scene in Ukraine it’s not as good as in other European countries, too much commercial music. But I have hope that it’s going to change in the nearest future.

Which South African female DJ do you know and do you see yourself networking with South African Female DJs or producers?

I’m not sure that I know somebody of that part of the world but I’m always open for work and meetings with new people.
