Avalon Nightclub Los Angeles, California Interview by: ROBROY
Markus Schulz’s Coldharbour Recordings hosted their yearly Coldharbour night in Los Angeles this past month at the legendary Avalon Nightclub. The event showcased the label’s trance duo Grube & Hovsepian, recently signed Dave Neven, vocalist Adina Buter, special guest Bobina and the always genuine and charismatic Nifra. The night kicked off with the club already packed and with the attendees prepared for a special night ahead. Raver Magazine’s Senior Broadcaster, RobRoy, was out to cover the event and sat down for an exclusive interview with Nifra. Read more about her thoughts on the Coldharbour showcase, the success of her producing career thus far, and what else she has in store for 2016.
Hey guys! Here at the Coldharbour night in LA and I am joined by Nifra who is about to take the stage soon. Nifra, first off, how are you doing? And how you feeling about tonight’s Coldharbour night in LA?
Speaking of popular tracks, you have been trending at the moment. You are the artist behind the Transmission theme The Creation, which is still at the top of the charts. How does that make you feel?
Hello to all the Ravers! I am very excited for tonight’s Coldharbour night. I am set to perform in 20 minutes, so I am beginning to prepare for it mentally with what tracks I have lined up for my set. I was able to look into the crowd before coming backstage, and it’s a packed house. I always enjoy coming to this nightclub - great production and a big venue!
I am so happy to see the success of my track created alongside Markus Schulz. As soon as it was complete and Markus heard it, he told me that it was going to be a hit! It was incredible to receive such support from Markus, especially because he is the boss of Coldharbour and also my mentor. You get the reassurance of producing a great track with the backing from your peers, and more importantly, the response from the fans. Markus played The Creation at Transmission in Prague and brought you on stage with him. How was that feeling, being in your home country?
Nifra, how has 2016 been? I see that you have been super busy touring and making some great productions. 2016 has been a highlight year for my career. For starters, the year started off with a lot of touring, which I was super happy about - visiting different countries and playing at various venues. After this show, I am heading to Slovakia for two shows. I am also performing at Dreamstate in New York for my first time, which I am really excited about!
The feeling was best described as “ecstatic” and “a rush of energy.” I am very close to the Transmission team out there and have played there before. For that moment to occur during one of the headliners’ (Markus Schulz’s) set - dropping my track and bringing me on stage to present to the crowd - the feeling was great!
