CHRISSY: My state of mind is always pretty high-energy—I make dance music after all! For me, this summer is all about being eclectic, throwing a lot of different genres and styles together, and focusing on more happy, uplifting sounds and vibes. I'm so tired of dark, aggressive techno sounds...
What are the top three summer things that give you an extra boost?
Mango sticky rice, bike rides, and walking outside at 8 or 9pm and having it still not be dark yet!
You've been running a monthly party called Feeling Better this summer on The Rooftop. What are the top three things that make you feel better?
A really good song, a good dancefloor, and hugs from my friends.
I read you’re now based in SF, but you have lived in Chicago, New York, and you play regularly in LA. Why did you decide to settle in SF?
How would you describe the influence and inspiration of being raised in Kansas?
