She’s a fixture in the Sydney DJ scene and on Saturday, August 29, DJ Feisty will celebrate 10 years on the job with a party at Phoenix.
It’s called Cock Up and Feisty says party people can expect the sound to be raw and undeniably sexy.
Cock Up is about checking any attitude at the door … it’s always a social occasion that turns into some nice and dirty dancefloor action later on, she told Sydney Star Observer.
The name was inspired by my many -˜cock ups’ at attempting to name a club event and it just sounds funny Â-” cocks up at Phoenix … who’d have thought?
I can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate my 10 years in DJing than at Phoenix.
Known for her percussive style, Feisty is a pioneer in adding industrial tech-type sounds and a deep and dirty bassline into her sets.
When it comes to reading the crowd, there’s no doubt she has that great DJ ability of sensing where the crowd wants the music to head and taking them on that journey.
Some people think that if the crowd aren’t all waving their hands in the air they’re not into it, but that’s not always true, Feisty said.
Strangely enough for me, if I notice people have their eyes closed and heads down it means they’re really into it and when you’ve got them there it’s vital to stay focused.
One wrong turn can get you an en masse trip to the bar, so I like to try to stay in the moment and not get too distracted.
Feisty said her career had already been filled with too many highlights to mention.
You get to play to many thousands of people. I never take that for granted, she said.
But the most significant event so far in my career has been playing at Phoenix. The -˜Crash’ days were critical for me as a DJ. I really grew during that time.
Nothing beats the week in, week out challenge of keeping your patrons interested enough to keep coming back.
info: Cock Up is on Saturday, August 29, at Phoenix. Doors open at 10pm with DJs Mandy Rollins and Feisty. Entry is $10 before midnight or $15 after.
