On the latest issue of VOLT Magazine, we collaborated with the French fashion brand, The Kooples. We couldn’t let this happen without a good ole party to celebrate. And what do you need for a great party? An even greater DJ! Lucky for us Becky Tong was available to spin the records at our event. And we even had time for a little Q&A with her so you can get to know the lady that gets people on the dance floor.
Volt Café: When was the first time you realized you wanted to go into the music industry?
Becky Tong: I never really set out wanting to be in the music industry. I was at Chelsea College of Art and Design and started doing an internship with a music and food festival & management company on the side. I was introduced to a few contacts in the music industry and began getting into DJing, which happened quite naturally. I ended up deciding to drop the paintbrush and focus on making waves in music!
VC: Could you tell us a bit more about your DJ style?
BT: Love playing Disco/House sets – anything to get people moving.
VC: What is/are your all time favorite track(s), and why?
BT: Love Come Down – Evelyn Champagne King is such a feel good song.
Rock With You – Michael Jackson is my fave MJ track and I find myself playing it every time I DJ, it’s timeless.
VC: Is there something absolutely essential to have with you when you are DJing? Besides all the equipment of course..
BT: Headphone jack! Forgotten that way too many times and that’s been an issue. Apart from that I always need hair ties – hair gets in the way a lot…
VC: What do you enjoy doing more than anything else?
BT: Cooking – If I wasn’t in music, I would pursue cooking full time.
VC: What would you recommend for people to have an amazing time at a club/party/festival?
BT: Make sure you have your party friend with you, I have dedicated friend who I just go out with really because that’s what he does best and he’s always the life of the party. You need a friend like this in your life.
