UP CLOSE WITH LAVIDA
You’ve no doubt seen this little ball of fire behind the decks. She’s played and curated parties at some of the biggest clubs around Sydney and beyond and you’ve most likely questioned, WHO IS SHE?! Well, meet Lavida, our very own (pocket-rocket) resident; and we get real up close and personal with her…
What have you been listening to lately?
L: At this very moment, its “Formation – by the Queen Bey”
And “Core by RL Grime” , oh and that “On Fleek” playlist on spotify is pretty cool too. And about 100 other eclectic tracks! Can never decide!
What can punters expect to hear when you’re in control of the dance-floor?
L: A lot of house, trap, and dirty bass-like beats. I’ve been known to go from anything like 130 to 70bpm, a whole bunch in between and back up again. I dislike staying in the same range for too long, so they can expect to DANCE! And a lot of Major Lazer.
What single night out has been the most memorable for you? As a DJ? As an attendee?
L: As a DJ, actually not too many weeks ago at The Argyle with a completely impromptu double back-to-back set in The Backroom, this included Sabio, Mike, Helena and myself, what a night!
As an attendee, hands down Coachella 2015. I’m still not over it.. ha ha! Definitely the best experience of my life with the best people ever. Met some absolute legends! (p.s sorry that one was actually a weekend)
What’s in the pipeline for Lavida anything exciting?
L: Yes a pretty exciting new collaboration in the works. I’ll leave it to that.. he he
Now for the juicy questions…
What would you say is your bad quality?
L: I talk way too much when I’m excited ha ha
When was the last time you lied and to whom and why?
L: Oh sneaky! I really suck at lying, but most likely it was when I was on my way to somewhere and texted someone that I was 5 mins away. It was never 5 minutes away.. most probably I was speed running my way there ha ha
Most embarrassing thing we can find on the internet about you right now?
L: Ha! Some fairly horrible home made lip-sync webcam videos with my high-school bestie… It was bad. Like Barbie Girl and that parody song “Shoes by Kelly” bad! I had braces, chubby cheeks, the lot….. thinking back, I’m petrified its still out there ha ha!
Can you share us a link?
L: If only I could find it myself!
Who would play you in a movie?
L: Wow, I really don’t know, someone super short?! Ha ha no, probably for personality purposes, Cara Delevingne? She can be geeky, hyper and playful and I think that would best describe me..
When all the partying is over how do you like to chill out?
L: Pizza & Super Nintendo & board games – yeah… I’m actually really geeky. Plus quality time with my close mates of course!
Last but not least, what’s your favourite thing about playing at The Argyle?
L: The staff, the punters the DJs, there is no other venue in Sydney that is as energetic and “vibing” like The Argyle. It feels like family here! I’m always leaving with a smile on my face!!
Catch Lavida every Saturday at The Argyle!
