A lot of your streams and mixes are infused with House Music elements, why is House Music such a huge part of who you are as an artist? The basics started with House. I was exposed to it mostly at an early age in my life in Miami. I love Electro/Big Room. When I first started, I wanted to mix Big Room Progressive Electro House Music and people thought I was crazy. Everyone told me that I had to start my sets with Techno. I knew it could be done so I started teaching myself how to do it. I love big room bangers and bass house. My inspiration came actually from Swedish House vibe like Axwell, Ingrosso and Steve Angelo – those sounds inspired me to play and get everyone in the vibe. The rest, as they say, is history. Your social media streams have shown that you have been going through a rough patch from a health perspective. It has to be challenging to perform and do what you are passionate about, day after day. Health issues come secondary to me. I am a mind over matter type of person. That being said, it was rough when I found out that I had endometriosis, especially because you might not be able to have children. To make matters worse, I was diagnosed

with Ovarian Vein Syndrome. It was a tough go for a while. The American Rave scene really stepped up and supported me. I cannot tell you how many email messages I got and text messages I got to help and support me during this time. I am so in love with music and so many people have tuned into my live sets that honestly my health is just part of me, but it doesn’t define me like the music does time and time again. I have to definitely give a Shout Out to my female and male PLUR Ravers who help me with my music. In the beginning, I messed up so much, but their feedback and support made my podcast and my sets all the better. What’s next for Alix B in the way of new music and mixes? Where can we expect to see you next? I have been talking with different producers and DJ’s. I can’t share their names right now, but let’s just say that I have some excellent things in the works. I am also working on a new EP. As for live mixes, I am putting those out almost daily for everyone to download and enjoy. •
