THE SELEKTA SEXXX INTERVIEW
What's the story behind your name?
My name kind of came from a different perspective on how people view the word “sex” and it’s meaning. Although it means many of things, people forget that Sex is also a mental stimulation not just physical. I decided to bring awareness to that through music. Some people judge and or ask why I chose the name and I use to give a long response to that but now... i’m starting to break it down in fewer words... “ITS JUST SEXXX” People have to be more comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Are you from Philly originally? What does the local music community mean to you?
Born in the Bronx but PHILLY raised me!
That’s a good question! The music community in Philly is full of inspiration and I think “We” as artist need each other’s energy and genuine support to CONTINUE to grow the community.
Where do you find inspiration when creating a new mix?
I like watching documentaries and old movies just for soundtracks. It helps me come up with different concepts and ideas for mixes. Just one of the few things that get my juices flowing.
What are some of your favorite types of events to DJ?
I like to spin at events that are more so Open Format. It allows me to have more creative control. I do NOT like “Radio Parties” CTHU
Tell us about your brand, Siobhan Hunter. How did it come to be? What are your inspirations? What do you hope to make people feel when wearing Siobhan Hunter?
Siobhan Hunter is actually my birth name. Many don’t know that lol. My inspirations for the brand are based off of my perceptions and how I view life. Many may not agree and then there is many that will. I like to design things you can feel other than the actual feeling of the product. It’s good, LOVING, passionate energy in everything I design at SBHN. No matter how you view it... you’re going to FEEL IT.... you’re going to FEEL ME.
Have you faced any prejudice or disrespect as a female in the creative community? How do you deal with that?
I actually haven’t experienced any of that as of yet.... Nightlife has built my aggression because it’s so male dominated which I’m not intimidated by and I also come from a household of 5 brothers, So.....I think I’m pretty good in that area.
Do you have any upcoming events coming up we can look forward to?
I do! We do! Lol The next event is on August 17th! Our Annual WET T-SHIRT FOAM PARTY. I don’t want to give up too much but if anyone attended last year.... they can tell you about THEEXPERIENCE. Lol
