Brooklyn on exclusive Interview with Out Now
With her infectious dance moves, charming country-girl nature, girly street swag style, and bright green eyes; Brooklyn is a DJ and performer the crowds don’t forget. She has taken her all-round powerhouse performance across the globe to some of the biggest venues in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Cambodia, England, Scotland, and Ireland. Not to mention her tour of North and South Vietnam with global megastar David Beckham to promote his whiskey - Haig Club.
Brooklyn’s transmissible sets lured the troops when she hit the stage at Creamfields in the UK and on the world’s largest cruise ship festival, ‘It’s the ship’, which sailed from Singapore across the straits of Malacca to Penang and back.
Before making her mark on the world music festival scene, Brooklyn shared the main stage with global headliners at Australia’s once iconic summer music festivals; Stereosonic and Future Music. But don’t think you’ll have traveled overseas to see Brooklyn in her element; you can become part of her body-hugging dance pit at major venues across Australia including headline shows at Marquee and Pasha in Sydney, HQ in Adelaide and everywhere in between.
For Brooklyn, preforming is when she gets lost amongst the force of the crowd, projecting her persona across the room creating that united buzz. The crowds just can’t take their eyes off her with the all-round performer erupting with mesmerizing dance moves whenever she can get away from the decks.
When Brooklyn is on the stage her beats include big room, electro-house, the latest anthems and anything with that deep pounding bass. Brooklyn has over 250k followers across social media who track her day to day life just to get a glimpse of what life is like for a DJ on tour, or to get fashion and style inspiration as her wardrobe is full of swag.

Where are you from?
I am originally a country girl from a small town in central Queensland called Biloela, then moved to the Gold Coast after high school. I love the Gold Coast my whole family is now living down here too which is good because I am very family-oriented.
When did you start making music?
I started producing music maybe 3 years ago now and I only started releasing music end of last year. Its such a nerve-racking thing putting out music, you put your heart and soul into something and the truth is not everyone is going to like it or understand it.
How do you describe your music?
My music is very housey, uplifting with catchy vocals, but I am still experimenting with sounds I don't want to be pigeonholed into one genre of music.

Favorite moment from your career?
It's hard to just pick one but when I played Creamfields in the UK I was shocked by the support over there. I had people lining up near the stage waiting to see me after my set to get photos, some even brought along photos of me to sign. Just crazy to think people on the other side of the world know who you are.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
I have always admired Calvin Harris, I just think is freakishly talented. Everything he puts out is a hit and can easily transition from radio to the club scene, it would be a dream to meet him one day.
What is your producing software? I use Ableton Live and have worked a little with FL Studios.

What other things do you do besides making music?
I manage myself so there is a lot of behind the scene work I do besides music. But outside of work, I love taking my dog on walks, going to the beach and making time to catching up with friends and family is important to me.
What is your favorite track of all time?
God this is a hard question haha one song I don't get sick of hearing and puts me in a great mood is Pressure - Starkillers,
Alex Kenji Ft. Nadia Ali (Alesso Remix).
What is your best-producing tip?
I think it's always good to start off with a clear vision of what kind of track your wanting to create, what mood, what vibe,
what sound, also trusting your own taste. Don't underestimate Minimalism and repetition are key, don't think your work is boring if it has repetition it can be more engaging and make sure you track is well polished.
Why did you start making music?
I had been DJing for a few years and the natural next step was to put out my own music. Its an even better feeling playing
your own music to a crowd and seeing their reaction.

What are your goals for the future?
To keep pumping out music, more tours overseas especially the US, collab with some talented artists and hopefully one day
play at massive festivals like Tomorrowland and EDC.
What advice can you give for the young music producers/DJs:
First of all believe in yourself! It sounds very cliché but its what got me where I am today.
Networking is very important throughout your career, especially when starting out, reach out to club promoters, other DJ
/producers, agencies and try to build a relationship with them.
Keep active on social platforms, you never know who could be watching/listening. Posting frequently so you can be on people's radar and showing them what you're up to will keep them interested in your journey.
Please write a message to your fans:
Words will never express how much I am grateful for all the love and support I have received over the years.
To anyone who's been to a show, listened to my music/mixes and followed me on social media THANK YOU!
I have a lot more exciting things coming in the future that I hope you love ❤️
