DJ Uglyana Jones

Today we jump back into another quick round of DJ interviews. Several DJ's have entered the scene now and we will interview and showcase a bit more! Some are old favorites and some just long time music lovers starting to stream in SL! So without further adieu...Here is Indiana.....I mean Uglyana Jones! Who by the way is nothing close to her namesake!!

Jonesy

Are you DJing currently and where?
I'm not, and frankly I'm confused as to why you are asking me, and further confused as to why I'm answering.  Ok, just kidding!  I'm spinning at The Velvet Tuesday 3 PM TO 5PM SLT

When did you start DJing?
About 6 weeks ago.

First Club?
The Velvet, of course!  It is my home.

Most unusual thing you saw while DJing?
Stipo Starship bouncing on a ball dressed as the Pope with his beloved pink bouffant.

Favorite music?
I usually stay within the indie range but within that I am drawn to many different sub-genres.  Lately I have been getting into electronic/experimental.


Influences?
Moby Tenanbaum.  To me he is The Form of a DJ.  He knows the genre, has a passion for the music, and has an amazing ear.  His sets are smooth, there aren't any unintentional bumps in the transitions.  And he has a quiet charisma that keeps people involved in the local chat.  Mallory Cerise is another influence.  She knows her genre thoroughly and can weld such compelling stories using music.  Also she has been a great help with the technical aspect of it.

What do you listen to at home?
Whatever I'm looking at for my next set.  In the car I am always singing along with The Shins.  They make me happy!

Do you have a regular set you play, a “go to” set?
Not yet, but as I play I try to remember the songs that people respond to for future sets. 

Cream and sugar or black?
1/3 milk, 1/3 coffee, 1/3 sugar.

Cat or Dog?
Rabbit.

If you could take one thing from your inventory for real-life use, what would it be, and why pick it?
Alphas.  Can you imagine how much fun you could have with a full body alpha, a cat and a car?

Best SL Memory?
When Maht Wuyts had to move The Velvet from the Downtown sim to the new Velvet sim there was a big fundraising party.  We had crazy costumes, funny dances, stripper poles, and Wiseblood Wisent was actually able to make use of his many random accessories.  Not only was it hilarious, but since we were all working toward a common goal, there was a beautiful sense of community as well.
Come out and check Uglyana out at the Velvet Tuesday 3-5PM SLT!!!
