Juliet Sikora započinje svoje putovanje ka elektronskoj muzici još u detinjstvu svirajući klavir. Kombinacija strasti, ambicije i akademskih dostignuća uvela je u svet muzičke industrije. Diploma Event menadžmenta omogućila joj je pristup najpopularnijim klubovima širom planete.

Odgovorna za vođenje izdavačke kuće “Kittball”, čiji je suvlasnik zajedno sa duom Tube & Berger i P.A.C.O., a koja drži zavidnu poziciju među Top 10 najprodavanijih deep house etiketa na Beatportu. Njena produkcija za lejblove “Suara”, “Material” i “Kittball” prošla je vrlo zapaženo u svetu house muzike.

U nedelju 13. januara ćemo je slušati na Central Dance Event žurci gde će DJ pult deliti sa Marikom Rossom, Roxom i Mark Anderssonom.

Pa da lagano pređemo na intervju…

Zdravo Juliet i hvala ti na odvojenom vremenu za ovaj razgovor.

01. Ispravi nas ako grešimo, ali ti si bila odgovorna za osnivanje “Kittball” etikete koju vodiš sa duom Tube & Berger. Kako je došlo do toga da uopšte sarađujete?

2005. godine, kada je “Kittball” osnovan, upoznala sam se sa njima preko agencije u kojoj sam radila. Agencija je radila menadžment za razne etikete, pa i za njihovu. 2009. su me kontaktirali i pitali da im se pridružim kao partner i koosnivač.

02. Ako bi ušli u sobu Juliet koja ima 14 godina šta bi tamo pronašli?

To je bila obična soba sa mnogo igračaka i mini soundsystemom. Na njemu sam snimala mixeve i moje vesti na kasete i još uvek imam neke od njih. Uvek se smejem kada ih slušam.

03. Šta bi danas trebala da ima traka da bi je potpisali za “Kittball”?

Ne postoji recept po kojem mi potpisujemo artiste, ali mora da ima nešto posebno. Često nam se dešava da dobijemo traku i da se nekome od nas svidi i da misli da ona ima potencijala i u takvim situacijama verujemo jedni drugima i često je i izdamo. Takođe se nađemo i u situaciji kada nešto nedostaje da traka bude kompletna i onda nemamo nikakav problem da posavetujemo producenta kako da je doradi.

04. Tvoja najbolja investicija do 100 evra?

Kupovina veoma kvalitetnog jastuka za putovanja.

05. Misliš li da je ženama teže da postanu deo DJ scene, u kojoj dominiraju muškarci? Imaš li neki savet za devojke koje imaju želju da postanu deo scene?

Danas je teško za sve da budu primećeni, ali opet je lakše nego pre 10-15 godina. Svako mora imati svoj put, a najvažnije je da budu ono što jesu.

Thanks #bangalore that was a super nice party and thanks for being so friendly, lovely and kind to me! Enjoyed every second and special thanks to the crazy dancers in the front and the Krank Crew, you made my day for sure ❤️ now off to Goa! W Hotel tonight along with Ankytrixx and my brother from another mother @deepeshsofficial

06. I za kraj nam reci šta možemo da očekujemo od tebe 13. januara i koji su ti planovi za ovu godinu?

Kao što svi znaju ja nisam techno DJ i od mene možete očekivati tech house/house set začinjen techno vajbom, ali više groovy.

Što se planova za 2019. tiče, remix za Claptonea će izaći ove godine i još jedan za popularni nemački DJ duo, čija imena još uvek ne smem da otkrivam. Takođe, imaću izdanja za “Formatik” i “Kittball” naravno.

Hvala ti još jednom! Vidimo se na danceflooru!

ENGLISH VERSION

Hello Juliet,

Thanks for taking some time between the gigs to speak with us. We really appreciate it.

01. Correct us if we are wrong but you were basically the operating mind behind Tube & Berger’s Kitball imprint. How did you meet and started being a crew?

In 2005, Kittball was initially founded by Tube & Berger and I met them through the company I was working for at that time. It was a company that provided label management for several well-known labels and that included Kittball. In 2009 Tube & Berger headhunted me from that company by asking if I would like to come and join them at Kittball as an equal partner and co-owner.

02. Can you tell us if we entered the room of 14-year-old Juliet what would we see in the room?

It was a regular nursery with tons of toys and a mini soundsystem. I recorded my own mixes, my own news with my cassette deck, I still have some of them. It makes me laugh listen to it.

03. What makes a good track worth signing today for Kitball?

We have to feel the track, hard to say these are the ingredients to get signed by Kittball. We often have the situation that one of us sees more potential in a track than the others, but we usually trust in each other’s decisions, and it usually gets released. We also have tracks sent to us that aren’t quite where we want them to be, in terms of suiting the kind of sound we put out on the label, and I don’t have any problems with sending the artist a response, with some tips on how he or she might improve the track.

04. What is the best investment you made under 100 euros?

Buying a high-quality travel Pillow.

05. Do you feel as a woman that it’s harder to make it into the predominant male scene? What would be your advice for young girls that want to come part of this scene?

It´s hard for everyone to get attention on the market today, but it is easier nowadays then 10-15 years ago. Everyone has to find their way, be yourself is the one I can give you.

06. For the end tell us what can we expect from you in Serbia on the 13th of January and what are your future plans in 2019?

As everyone knows I´m not a Techno Dj, so you can expect a nice pushing Techhouse/house set with some techno vibes but more groovy.

My plans for 2019, I did a remix for Claptone which will be released this year, I fixed another remix for a big German Dj duo, but I´m not allowed to talk in public about the names. I have also set releases on Formatik and of course on my Label Kittball.

Thank you once again for being with us! See you on the dancefloor!
