It’s a fact: Vixely can’t get enough of SBND. Following our interview last week with Sabrina Burda of the SBND pair, we caught up with her musical accomplice, Natalie Dodge, to find out how Natalie got started as a DJ, her favorite artists and dream venue, and what’s on SBND’s playlist right now (you will LOVE it!).

Vixely (V): How long have you been DJing? How did you start?
Natalie Dodge (ND): I first started DJing when I was with Sabrina about a year and a half ago. She taught me how to use the equipment and we would practice together every chance we could get. A plus is that I work for a dance music label in NY and I listen to this type of music everyday, so I think it was easier for me to figure out how to beat match and mix/ blend songs into each other.
V: Who are your favorite artists to listen to/ mix right now?
ND: How to choose! I think the DJs/ producers at the top of my radar at the moment are Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris, Third Party, Deniz Koyu, and Kaskade. Some up-and-comers to definitely watch out for are Paris & Simo, Walden, Danny Avila, Jakob Liedholm, Pierce Fulton, and Bauer & Lanford.
V: Dream venue?
ND: I would have to say Pacha in Ibiza. I hear it’s one of the most magical clubs in the world, and if we had the opportunity to DJ a party there, it would be a dream come true.
