Q: How long have you entertained people for a living?

Q: Who or where do you get your motivation from?
A: I mostly get my motivation from other artists, seeing other people work on their craft every day makes me wanna do the same and achieve more in my career.
Q: What are you currently working on?
A: I just finished 2 of my new tracks and looking forward to releasing them soon, also have a couple of exciting events ahead!
Q: How large is your fan base?
A: I have fans pretty much from all over the world. When I go visit any country, I go to meet someone who has already known me from social media which is super cool.
Q: Where do you see yourself in the next 2 years?
A: In the next 2 years I see myself touring the world more and performing in many different countries that I’ve never been to before.
Q: What do you like the most about what you do?
A: I love music and being able to share my music with the world. This is the biggest gift I could ever ask for. Also, I love to DJ for big crowds, the energy you get from hundreds of people is something else!
Q: What are your favorite cities and countries to visit?
A: I’m from Russia, and Russia is and always will be my favorite country. But I love traveling, and I am very excited about any country I have the privilege to visit. The last 2 countries I have DJ’d in were Bahrain and Oman which I enjoyed a lot. Next month I’m traveling to Taiwan for the first time, I can’t wait! Every country has something interesting to offer and I have so many more on my list to visit!
Q: What advice would you give other similar DJ’s?
A: Keep working towards your goals and improve your skills every single day even when you are not in the mood for it or too tired. If you give your craft enough of your time, efforts, and energy you’ll see the results you desire.
Q: How do you start the day before work?
A: I start every day from shower and breakfast. Never skipped breakfast in my life, I’m a huge foodie and without that first meal my whole day would be ruined, lol.
Q: Do you demand a lot from yourself? If so, please give an example.
A: I don’t know if that’s a lot but I am trying to stay on top of my game and spend time not just on perfecting my skills and making new music but also on taking care of my health and look. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading books, enjoying small things in life like walks on the beach, good food, or enjoying an interesting movie.
Q: What is the most enjoyable experience you have had as a DJ?
A: Seeing new places and meeting new people is a very enjoyable part of my work. Also, the feedback from people after my sets about how they liked it and how my music made them feel always makes me happy.
Q: How many Instagram followers do you have?
A: 51K at the moment.
Q: How important is social media to you?
A: It is an important platform for sharing your craft with people. I think it’s amazing that through social media many people from other countries I’ve never been to can hear my music and see my videos without me traveling there.
Q: Do you have any other hidden talents that not too many people know about?
A: I used to be a pretty good piano player but haven’t been playing for a long time now. I also swim well and love baking.
Q: What would you like everyone to know about you the most?
A: I’m just a girl who follows her dreams and works hard to achieve her goals. I’m grateful to be where I am right now but I have so much more to do and not going to give up no matter how hard my road will be.
We look forward to hearing DJ Eliza May during her next performance.
