SPOTLIGHT PROFILE
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH
MAY KWOK
ABOUT MAY
DJ and fashion tastemaker May Kwok has been making waves in the New York social scene as a sought-after DJ by night and a visionary entrepreneur by day. With a finger on the pulse, May has established herself as a downtown fixture among the city’s premier creative community of fashion leaders, artists and musicians.

Whether it is for her taste in fashion, music, fitness or just her fun loving spirit May has been featured in the nation’s top outlets from The New York Times to Vogue Korea to WSJ and Harper’s Bazaar. These features range from highlighting her creative endeavors such as her concept pop-up shop The Notion or her collaboration with FRENDS headphones, to showcasing her effortless cool girl style to her carefully curated dance-worthy playlists.

Q&A
Your new Spring mix is full of disco vibes and funky beats. It's definitely one people will want to get up and dance to. What was your inspiration and how is it different than other recent mixes?
My past mixes have been very top 40/electronic/hip hop, so I wanted to showcase a different side of me--the funkier side. Also, who DOESN'T like disco?

What would you say is your current musical style? How does this reflect in the places your playing?
I feel like I hear the same kind of music at every event, so I really want to explore deeper into funk/disco/house music. I've been spending a lot of time researching on BeatPort.

What are you most looking forward to this Spring? 
Warmth and sunshine!!!! Definitely excited to play at poolside events in the Hamptons this summer. It's always a fun time.
