INÉZ is the last name of the Swedish DJ scene and debuted last Friday with her debut single Listen to your heart” that is a new version of Roxette’s superhit and Billboardone from the 1989th

Despite five years of professional DJ meets INÈZ daily by comments from men who think she just stands in a DJ booth andpress a button to start / stop the music.”

– I get hefty comments from men who comes forward almost every time I play. And with 3-4 gigs a week, it can be quite tiring, says INÈZ. My goal is to wash away all prejudices against us girls who have DJs as a profession and I like to be treated with the same respect as my male colleagues.

Her interest in DJ profession began in middle school when she signed up for a DJ course. Already then noticed the male dominance, and when she was the only girl on the course burst her confidence and she dropped out.

I regretted it hard for many years that I did not complete my dream. When I many years later was asked to jump in as a DJ in a nightclub I did not hesitate a second. I invested in my own equipment and hung out on the Stockholm night clubs every night to listen to how other DJs play. I listened to their mixes and began to imitate them at home in the living room behind my turntables.

Today is INÈZ a established DJ’s name and work continuously mix-tapes and co-producing tracks for various projects. The debut single “Listen To Your Heart” is co-produced along with English producer Patrick Jordan and is available on all platforms.
