The Highs and the lows

The Highs and the lows
Parisian DJ High Low has recently become a Sydney-sider and the latest addition to our DJ roster. I had a chat with her to find out, among other things, why the big move.
 
Tell us a little about yourself.
 
I'm from Toulouse in the south of France and I moved to Paris to play with and for my bro and mentor Ben Manson. The first thing that made me want to become a DJ is Paul Kalkbrener that I had seen in concert for "Berlin Calling". The power he held in his hands to take the crowd along with him ... I think that's what I like about being a DJ, you know what I mean? (M: 100%)
 
Why "High Low"?
 
There are two reasons. When I started to DJ there was music that had just come out that was so deep and melodic that it made me "high" (I'm ashamed, I won't say which one πŸ˜œ ) and I also had this way of mixing which went up very high and then went down very low like a big melodic break ... and πŸ’₯.
 
You've appeared at the Milkshake Festival in Amsterdam, Mardi Gras in Sydney, Instinct events in Berlin, the Parisian editions of LDMT and of course Extra Dirty. How would you describe your sound in 3 words.
 
Melodic, high and low.
 
What's your top track at the moment?
 
Clap codex D72 - Take Control
 
You've recently re-located to Sydney. Why?
 
After coming to Sydney twice to play, it left me with an indescribable memory and especially for Extra Dirty on the June long weekend last year. The day I had to go back to France I found myself in front on the hotel looking at the sky and I said to myself, I have to come back here, but this time, to stay longer. I don't know why but that's what I felt deep inside.
 
What's your favourite French food?
 
Cheese (M: Of course).
 
What's your favourite Australian food?
 
I will say that I've discovered a passion for Sydney pepperoni pizza.
 
What's your poison?
 
Not very original but I love beer. (M: All the best people do πŸ˜‰ )
 
Thanks Marjo. We can't wait to see you again on the long weekend.
