Billie Clements Interview
Georgia interviewed Billie about how she started DJ’ing.
- What made you start DJ’ing?
I loved dance music. My mum would always play it when I was growing up and I just thought it would be quite cool to do as there are not many female DJs about.
- How old were you when you started?
I wanted to start when I was 13 but my mum wouldn’t let me as she didn’t think I was serious about it, but she eventually let me start when I was 16.
- Where did you first DJ?
I started having DJ lessons then practiced in my bedroom for a year then my first ever set was in a club called the DSI. It was awful! (Haha)
- Where has DJ’ing taken you?
DJ’ing has taken me all over the world. I have DJ’d in places like; India, Sweden, Chile, Poland, Ibiza, Marbella, Serbia, Belgium, Amsterdam, Bahrain, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and all over the UK.
- How did you come up with the idea for ‘Sin Sundays’?
In Liverpool there was nothing on for music on a Sunday and I knew people liked going out on a Sunday, so my best friend and I started in in a Liverpool club and it just got bigger and bigger. We used to go to Ibiza every summer and we thought ‘why not bring it to Ibiza too?’
- Where do you travel to DJ now?
Now that we have Sin Sundays in different cities we travel to Amsterdam, Dubai, Croatia, Andorra and all of the places I mentioned above!
- Who is your favourite DJ?
I love a lot of different DJs, it depends on my mood, but at the moment I love Carl Cox. If I am at a festival David Guetta is my favourite but I also love Calvin Harris!
