One of my long time friends here in second life that I met one day I was exploring and taking photos, we became friends from that day. I though for her hard work as a dj in this virtual world it would be interesting to learn about when Lexy joined SL and how she became a dj.
How did you find second life?
I found second life by a friend he was playing it and i never knew about it, that was in the begin of 2007 and it looked so nice kind sims but way better.
Did it take a long time for you to become a dj?
It was in 2008 that a friend told me how to dj in sl so i gave it a try, I loved it and sins then I have been a dj. I have played in many clubs back then different kind of clubs, but sins 2010 i started more to mix and i enjoyed that even more. In the past that was more like play some songs and did a lot of Requests, that changed in to mixing and try to make youre own beats and songs not that im a producer in rl but love to fool around and try.
Do you have one music style you prefer to spin, and please share how you prepare for a dj set.
I don’t have one music style, during the week i browse old and new music. Then I guess it’s kind of routine, I bring my selection and my stuff adding a few new tracks every week but not that much. I have a few folders that i can use, but i don’t really prepare much. I just wait to see the audience the club and then i get an idea, then i follow that idea. I’m not really playing with my mind when I do a set I play with my heart, I do what i think is right which is the basis of be a dj. You play what you think is the right track at the right moment and there is no real reason why, I don’t really think about it I just feel it.
What type of dj gear are you using, and do you prefer mp3 files over vinyls.?
Im using vdj with a midi controller and i use mp3 tracks because i don’t have the equipment for lps or vinyls.
How do you see your SL in 3 – 5 years, still dj, or have you left this world by then?
That is very good question i hope im still around I have been here since 2007, I think I will because music is my passion i can’t live with out music in my life.
When you spin do you do it for the Lindens or for the love of music, or both?
That very easy question i do it for the love of music to share my love of music to people in sl, I love to make people happy to listen to all kind of tunes and yes it is nice if people show you some gratitude for the music you bring them. But for me it is still the place to bring good music and fun to people, I need to say the clubs scene in sl changed a lot to in the years, some are doing great and others don’t that’s the part you never know how that will turn out in the future.
