Welcome our newest edition to The Kagency Talent Roster, Lara Gerin. Lara first made a name for herself as a model, then later embraced her passion for fashion and became a stylist. Now a globetrotting DJ, Lara applies her innovative approach to styling to her latest passion, music curating. We caught up with Lara recently to get the inside scoop.
What inspired you to become a DJ?
My whole childhood was filled with music references, my cousin was always djing at home for himself and I would sit under the table to listen and feel the vibe. That's how I became interested in music. Then later as an adult working as a stylist, clients would always ask me to do a playlist for their shoots or ask my opinion for their soundtrack. I started professionally djing in 2009, first for friends' fashion launches and then expanded from there.
What's your go-to song guaranteed to get a crowd on the dance floor?
I like to mix different kinds of bounces depending on the style I'm playing (House, Deep House, Hip Hop or Dancehall) and make it a sexy vibe. I also always find a time to mix in some of my Brazilian tunes to give it a little twist. It always works well on the dance floor.
Aside from creating music, what are your other passions?
I love my work as a stylist. It is a different way to expand my creativity. Also, I love to go hear my DJ friends perform and dance all night long. That's my greatest passion.
Where is the most unusual place you've performed?
In Saint Tropez, in this amazing Villa for a friend's 50th birthday. It had an amazing view and limited to only a few, special people.
