‘When I saw her rocking the dance floor, it changed my life and I knew this was what I was born for. I had to become a DJ.’
Nakadia taught herself how to master the decks, since she had no one to guide her in Thailand. She ended up taking her turntables and some vinyl and left to go to Germany to practice nonstop at the University of Braunschweig for another 3 months. After almost a year and a half she mastered the technique and started to get some bookings, but not for the right reasons.
She started to see that she was getting bookings because she was dressed sexy and her looks.
Nakadia talked to a friend and he suggested that she stop dressing up sexy and dress casually, because she doesn’t want to be none as the sexy DJ, She revamped her image so she was taken seriously.
After years of bookings and often times playing for empty dance floors, she signed to Sven Vath’s record label ‘Cocoon’ and is now playing events such as Berlin Love Parade, King’s Day in Amsterdam, and Green Love in Serbia.
