Over the years we’ve always looked forward to Berlin DJ Nadja Lind’s sets which fall into the realms of deep electronic, techno, house, dub, and minimal techno. When Lind isn’t djing or producing her own tracks, she’s busy running the Lucidflow label, home to some of the finest deep electronic music being released today.
Check out our interview with Lind below. But first, press the play button below to set the scene.
1. WHAT QUALITIES MAKE AN AMAZING MIX?
An amazing song touches my soul, gives me goosebumps, makes me wanna jump and dance, moves me to tears and leaves an instant imprint to my nervous system.
2. YOUR LIFESTYLE IN FIVE WORDS?
Rollercoaster. Laugh. Vegan. Workout. Change.
3. WHO DO YOU RESPECT?
My friends. Nature. Rüdiger & Annette Nehberg. Dr. Gabor Maté. Steven Wolinsky. Barbara Rütting. Everybody who is compassionate, reflected and able to change – that’s courage.
4. WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BERLIN?
The people you get to meet from all over the world. The airports. The weirdos and aliens you get to see here. Biking lanes. Car sharing. Nearby gym. Relaxed vibe. Parks.
5. WHAT SOUND BEST DESCRIBES BERLIN?
Techno. City noise.
6. FAVOURITE PLACE TO TAKE OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS?
I take them to the Rudimarie Cafe in Neukölln.
7. FAVOURITE BEVERAGE?
Classic Chai from BioCompany.
8. DO YOU BELIEVE IN ‘LOVE AT FIRST SITE’?
It’s a question of definition. The term ‘love’ has been (ab)used inflationary. I believe in attraction at first sight but not love.
9. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
A binaural ambient drone wave I’ve been working on for my next ‘Turning In’.
10. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE CITIES AROUND THE WORLD?
Too many to name. Each place is different and related to the people I met and experiences I had. I’d love to live in an Earthship somewhere in the woods – this would be my fav place for sure.
11. WHERE WOULD YOU TRAVEL IF IT WAS THE LAST JOURNEY IN YOUR LIFE?
I would have to travel to Mordor and Rivendell in that order, if it was my last journey.
12. DO YOU BELIEVE IN GHOSTS?
No. I believe in energy, synchronicity and parallel universes.
13. ARE YOU MORE OF A RULE KEEPER OR RULE BREAKER?
It depends on the rules and if I consider them as helpful and supporting or useless. Rules depend on their context.
14. ARE YOU A HUGGER OR NON-HUGGER?
Hugger most of the time.
18. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
Ho’oponopono. I love animals therefore I refuse being part of this system of torture. Be consistent. Be grateful. Focus. Practice. Do what you love. Get rid of bad energy (whether people or believe systems). Kindness. Trust my gut feeling. Cut the bullshit. Reflect. Weep. Change. Try and error, try again. Be happy so you will make others happy, too. Respect people, animals, nature and treat them as kindly as I treat myself. Enjoy health, sanity and life. Find your personal meditation..
19. WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR 2016?
Find out who I am and having a lot of fun doing so.
