Interview: Carlita

Carlita, thanks for speaking with us! How are you doing and where are you currently?

I am very well thank you! I am currently at home in New York taking a few days off before heading back to Sundream Festival in Mexico.

You are a classically trained musician, when did you first venture into electronic music?

From a very young age I was brought up playing the Piano and Cello and was always involved in the classical musical scene. When I was growing up in Turkey the electronic music scene wasn’t so big and therefore, I didn’t have too many opportunities to get involved with it. I then went to Boston to study music and business management, and it was here that I really found my love for electronic music. First I thought that I wanted to have my own management company in the music industry but i slowly got more involved in the nightclub scene and started to DJ more and more often and enjoyed doing it so much and seeing the happiness it brought to other people on their nights out that I decided that it was what I wanted to pursue as a career.

Who or what would you cite as your musical influences?

From a young age, I was always very influenced by classical music and Philip Glass was a big inspiration to me growing up. As I moved more towards the electronic music scene, I started listening to artists such as Moby and Gorillaz and they’ve always influenced me and inspired me a lot when it comes to producing music as I feel their music is timeless and will never be forgotten.

You recently released your track ‘Life’ with Andhim, with a full EP release on the horizon. How did you come to collaborate with Andhim and can you walk us through the creative process?

I’ve always been a big fan of Andhim’s music and was listening and playing their music from very early on in my DJ career, to be asked to collaborate on an EP with them was a dream come true. We met a few times on our travels around the world and have always had so much in common both musically and just in general life so it came very naturally when we decided to make this EP together. We both had our vision for the EP and worked together in making this come to light and we are so happy with how it has turned out.

What has the reaction to ‘Life’ been like so far?

‘Life’ has been receiving great reactions and has been a hit ever since we first started playing it. It’s a very dreamy track that always brings out lots of emotions from the crowds.

How would you describe your sound?

I like to think that my sound is a surprise. I don’t like to stick to having one defining style or sound because I always love to explore new sounds and genres and will try and take people on a journey during my sets. I like to play anything from psychedelic rock to disco and techno. Always expect the unexpected and prepare to be surprised.

You host your own multi-sensory party series called Senza Fine, can you tell us about the inspiration behind it?

The main inspiration behind Senza Fine is the idea of community. I have always wanted to build a strong community in the fashion and Dance music space, and this is what we are trying to do with Senza Fine. I have always been inspired by so many things around the world and trying to bring these inspirations together both musically and visually is what Senza Fine is about, we try to enlighten as many of the human senses as possible at our events.

Upcoming shows for you include RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Sundream Baja with DJ Tennis. What can attendees expect from your performance?

This is going to be a great show and it’s a big honour to be invited to play by Rufus Du Sol. The location is in such a beautiful spot and Rufus Du Sol’s team have done such an amazing job with the production. People attending can expect a high energy show from us with lots of new and unreleased music from DJ Tennis and myself.

Where is a dream location for you to play?

I recently got the opportunity to play in 2 locations that I had dreamed about for years, the first one was Coachella and the 2nd was Printworks in London. Both were incredible and I’m so grateful I got the chance to see Printworks before it closed its doors. This might come as a bit of a surprise to most but one place I’ve always dreamed of visiting and being able to play is Mongolia and the other one is Clorophilla Club in Puglia.

What else is coming up for you this year? Anything new releases or shows we should have on our radar?

This year is going to be the busiest year so far, I am playing in lots of new countries and will be doing a lot more festival shows this summer which I can’t wait for. Some shows I am super excited for are – Kappa Futur Festival in Turin, Junction 2 Festival in London and Tomorrowland. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the studio and have a lot of new music coming out this year including some really cool remixes for some of my favourite artists, releases coming out on some of my fav labels and also have my first album coming later this year which I can’t wait for you to hear.
