Hip to the hop
Thereâ€™s something about hot chicks that are really into their music. And then thereâ€™s an extra something about hot chicks that are into good music.
Then there's something totally different about chicks who are into hip hop. Itâ€™s not one of those tangible things; it's not something you can touch or feel. Just something you know. Alison Wonderland fits that bill perfectly. â€œI got into music when I was still an embryo. My mother force-fed me The Beatles while I was baking in her tummy. I am a pretty strange person and usually the only thing that I make sense of is music.â€
Not a bad way to be, really. Regardless, Alison prides herself on her love of the urban sounds. But then she also knows how to select, mix and rock a party as well. â€œMan, I love, love, love hip hop. I often find myself staring up to the sky, day dreaming, wishing I had a booty. It's definitely one of my favorite genres to DJ even though I don't consider myself a genre-ist! I love everything and anything as long as it speaks to me.â€
Keeping busy on stage isn't her only love. A bit of studio time doesn't go astray either, but she's keeping mum about it for now. â€œActually I have quite a few things up my sleeve. I am busy with my own production at the moment - it's actually the reason I was recently in London! It's all a bit hush-hush at the moment, which is lame because I would love to tell the world about it.â€
Still, she won't be compartmentalised and is quick to make the following disclaimer: â€œto be honest - since my first set I played genre free - although I have noticed a lot more DJs getting into the party style which is awesome! I just love what I do. I spend my time travelling, listening to music and doing loads of interstate and festival gigs! â€œI don't really stop jumping once I get on stage,â€ she chimes. â€œSo expect a bit of an organised mess from me. Really though, just make sure that when you get to the Bundaberg tour, you're ready to party, party, oh... and also... party!â€
