Apart What was your first electronic music experience and how old were you?
Niki Kitz Hearing “Silver Screen Shower Scene” on 88.9 Radio Milwaukee for the first time. Shortly afterwards I bought Felix’s “Kittenz and thee Glitz” album on CD and listened to it on repeat… I think I was 14 or 15 at the time.
Apart What’s your preferred genre(s) of EDM you like to listen to?
Niki Kitz House, tech house, deep house & techno. House music will always have my heart but lately I’ve been seeking out that spacey, colorful, atmospheric techno.
Apart Who are your top 3 DJs of all time?
Niki Kitz This is a hard one… if I really have to pick only three I’d probably have to say Maya Jane Coles, Claude Von Stroke and Seth Troxler. These three have really amazed and inspired me each time I’ve seen them play for a number of years now.
Apart If you’re not listening to electronic music, what are you listening to?
Niki Kitz Simon and Garfunkel, Pink Floyd, the Beatles and the rest of my mom’s old record collection which I was lucky enough to inherit.
Apart Are there any specific Milwaukee or Wisconsin events/clubs that have stood out and made a memorable impression on you (past or present)?
Niki Kitz I’ve only been legally able to go to clubs in Milwaukee for about a year now, but the events that have seemed particularly special to me are Crave, Taste It, and Tribe.
