What is the driving force that keeps Alix going day after day, especially in the world of dance music that is always changing? I am naturally hyper. My sound is unique because I don’t have a set genre. It all depends on the mood I am in, to be honest. It is not uncommon for me to go from a Deep House to a more Tech House

You are the first American female DJ to rock the world with fans from 175 countries. What is the ride like to be in front of so many people who are going nuts over the Alix B vibe? The first American female DJ of anything is really humbling. Much less to have so much energy to resonate globally through a movement of coexistence is insane. I started mixing when I was sick and got diagnosed with endometriosis. I realized that I had to chill and take a step back from what I love to do the most. It was then that my good friend Aaron Reid told me that I needed to DJ, that I needed to do what I love most. I thought it over while I was sick and then I started to really get into Djing. Had it not been for my good friend opening my eyes and this severe illness who knows where I would be right now.
