Get To Know Allie V
Q. What’s your elevator pitch?
A. In a nutshell, I’m a Music Producer, DJ, Performer, Designer and Entrepreneur! I was heavily influenced by music from a young age and with that passion I was able to cultivate a lifestyle that I could have only dreamed about 10 years ago. I can’t pin point a specific moment in time when it all began but once I graduated from College where I studied Radio Broadcasting, a different beast emerged. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some Juno Nominated artists with my latest projects reaching No.2 on iTunes Hot 100 Sales Charts and No.5 on the Hardwell “Talent Revealed” Charts. I’ve also had the opportunity to perform at big clubs and festivals and open for HUGE acts that I’ve previously paid to see in concert.
Q. What’s your music style?
A. Tasty, I push to be a taste maker when it comes to music and try not to play ONLY big records. This doesn’t mean you won’t hear some popular records in my sets but you can bet it will be a banging version you’ve never heard. Drop Vocals here! insert instrumental there! ENERGY, if I had to choose one word.
Q. Currently, what are you working on?
A. Building an Empire! On top of production and performing live, I’ve had a label and agency in the works for start-up as well as a design company already functioning and helping other artists create a brand through web, logo, cover art and anything in-between listed as services offered. Music is still the No.1 motivator for everything Allie V but with so many musicians stepping across platforms to capitalize on more opportunities, I’d be ignorant to not continue expanding.
Q. How many shows do you do per year?
A. I feel there is more importance in the quality of shows played rather than a set amount but if I have to give you a ball park, I would say anywhere from 75 to 150 depending on the year. Keep in mind those numbers include everything from a Big festivals to private and intimate functions.
Q. Where is your favourite place to spin?
A. I love to travel, so pretty much anywhere I have to get on a plane. You can’t beat that feeling!
Q. What are your dealer’s choice?
A. I play on pretty much anything and everything! It comes down to mood or type of event really. I currently prefer Pioneer CDJ2000s & Pioneer DJM900 but I played on Technic 1200 MKII and a Rane 57SL on vinyl for years. I’m also all over the midi controller scene and use software like Serato & Ableton. As for production, Akai MPD, KRK Monitors among a few others and a ton of other software & hardware!
Q. What do you want people to know?
A. Your mind is powerful! If you stick to it and believe it, it will manifest. The important part here is this works in both ways, Positivity & Negativity. So, be careful what you truly believe or you might end up in the opposite place you are looking for.
