Seeing the fans there in attendance and dancing to your track is why I love what I do. What’s next for Nifra? Next up, I am finishing a vocal track. I have already put out Army of Lights and also a few others, but I am working to finish and release this vocal track by the end of the year. I want to finish my year off strong with a lot of touring, while also supporting Markus at a few of his new album shows.

It’s been tough, and it has always been tough from the start. I have received positive and negative feedback and criticism from both male and female producers. Once you are in the scene and look a certain way, the critics think that you’re a puppet out there. That is not the case at all. I had no one to show me how to mix or perform. I started off enjoying trance music and being inspired by artists such as Markus Schulz and now I’m lucky enough to produce and play on his label. For me, it’s always been about the music and I can see that fans started to notice that in my performances.

Perhaps working on a Nifra artist album? Yes, that has definitely been one of my goals. I’ve had it in the back of my mind and have been working on it. I’ve been thinking about a few good tracks I would like to create and release as an artist album. I am looking to get some free time after the hectic touring of 2016, some studio time where I can really sit down and put together a great album.

Nifra, lastly before we let you go. What is the message you would like to send out to your fans of yours all over the globe? I want to give big thanks for all the love and support that fans have given me throughout this journey, and to the new fans, too! Thank you for giving me a chance and listening to my music. Hope to see you all at one of my shows! •

Nifra, as a female producer/artist in electronic music, how have you adapted to the scene with it being mostly males?
