Lights Out: Winter Edition
6 Questions with our Resident Lights Out DJ Caroline Tucker!
You have a lot spinning in your world (not just the DJ decks)! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you’re up to at the moment?
Things have been very busy behind the scenes and not just on the DJ front! During the week I teach a youth DJ and production class at Northern Sound System called Bangerz & Mashups, host Drive and Fresh Air on Fresh 92.7 and am currently working on a brand new album with mega Adelaide talent Tevlo. We've teamed up for an electro/drum and bass project called V O E with our first single 'Asking For It' releasing June 29th through Global League.
We are so pumped to have you back DJing for Lights Out in Adelaide. What do you love about this gig?
The Lights Out gigs at Latitude are one of my favourite sets to play. They're full of energy and most of all laughing, happy faces of the kids who come on down for the event! We have a few regular returners who I have dubbed honorary DJs, they're always excited to jump behind the decks and have a go and I always invite any newcomers to pop over and say "Hi" and have a spin with me!
Have you had a chance to hit up the Latitude activity floor yourself yet?
One of the first things I did was head straight to the trampolines when I started DJing at Latitude! I absolutely love jumping into the giant air mattresses and pretending that I'm good at doing flips. Haha!
So we’ve done our research on you… 😜 We saw that you’ve hung out with Danni Minogue and gave her a lesson in DJing. Do you have any other career highlights or pinch-me moments that you can share with us?
There have been some amazing moments in my career but I think the past 6 months have been the most "pinch-me" worthy. I was lucky enough to be chosen to play for New Years Eve at Elder park in front of 50,000 people with Mobin Master, Tevlo & PNK FME, open for one of my Idols Just A Gent with Tevlo and play our own original songs to a packed out crowd as V O E (And have people actually dance to something we've made!) and recently play before, meet and talk about music with ShockOne at the Fresh 92.7 Birthday party - lots of long hours of work/preparation & rehearsals but with the most sensational outcomes!
What have you got in store for the people heading to our Lights Out: Winter Edition?
I have been putting some really cool mash ups together in preparation for the Winter Edition, combining a bunch of requests that came through from kids at the last Lights Out event. I really love to amp up the energy and get people moving!
Just for fun, can you tell us something about you that most people don’t know?
I'm obsessed with food, mainly cheese which most people do know but I also love weird food combinations like vegemite, mayonnaise & tomato sauce sandwiches - all on separate slices of bread, but I like to eat them at the same time. LOL.
