The 2020 Breakthrough DJ Competition is now well into Round 2, so we’ve decided to catch up with each of the Top 16 to learn a little more about them 👀 We’ll be speaking with all of the Top 16 in the coming days.
Today we catch up with Clickbait from Melbourne, now living in Glasgow, who impressed the judges with her bold style. Definitely one to watch!
Hi Clickbait, well done for making the Top 16! You really stood out for your style in Round 1 so we can’t wait to hear your next mix!
First of all, introduce yourself?
If Britney Spears and Patrick Topping had a love child, that’s essentially the sound of a Clickbait set. I’m 5ft but love LARGE party tunes, you’d be challenged to find someone with more energy on the decks.
Couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Tell us your favourite genre to play and your favourite track right now?
Tech house and liquid drum and bass. Claude Von Stokes ‘Solo’ that came out in the midst of isolation, or the remix of Anderson Paaks ‘Come Down’ that Glasgows legends Shaka Loves You put together.
Interesting mix, so how long have you been behind the decks? Biggest claim to fame?
18 months, I ran into Skepsis in a crowd post-set at a festival once. Bought him a beer and chatted about Australia. Nicest dude.
Skepsis is a chilled guy, I’ve bumped into him in a club too. We’d like to know who each of you aspire to?
Probably Skream. He handles so many genres so well – his versatility in the EDM world is iconic, there’s nothing that guy can’t do.
Big up Skream haha. So, if you could play at any party or venue, where would it be?
I’d love to be on the Hideout lineup in Croatia, ideally a boat party. Do boats count? Alternatively, a boiler room in London. Any club. Anywhere. As long as there’s a dance floor.
Both are great choices, and somewhere sunny would be nice right now! Anything you would like to share before we wrap up?
I’ve kicked off a podcast exhilerate radio UK called THE CLICKBAIT PROJECT. Exclusive tracks and interviews with my favourite up and coming artists from around the globe. Check it out.
Last question: what’s your opinion on phones on the dancefloor?
Sometimes when I’m on the dancefloor and I get overwhelmingly happy I text my Mum. So, I don’t have anything against phones. Live ya life man, everyone parties differently.
