Current state of mind.
I’m very happy!
Is BLANKA your real name or is it an artistic name? Where does it come from and what does it mean to you?
My real name is Blanca, I wanted to keep my name by changing something so it is in capital letters, it means purity and brilliant, and I like the meaning of it.
What is your first memory with music? The first song you remember, the first instrument you played, the first concert you went to.
My first memory of music I have is Flamenco, since it is very typical where I am from. The first song I remember: Pereza – Princesas . Also the first concert was with this band too. And the first instrument I played is called: ¨cajón¨ in Spanish.
What was your first DJ gig like?
I remember I was very nervous, but it was an incredible experience to have the opportunity to play in public.
Did you always know you were going to dedicate your life to music? Or was there something else in mind before DJ-ing came by?
Music has always been with me all my life, but no, I tried many things before until I knew that I wanted to dedicate myself to music. I worked as a model for a few years until I realised that I didn’t want this for all my life, although I love fashion.
How did you start the label Room Trax with Angioma?
We met in Barcelona, I started working with them running the social networks, until everyone in the team decided to leave. Then Alexy (Angioma) and I stayed. We decided to adapt the name and the concept and start the brand again together.
When and why did you decide to move from Barcelona to Berlin, the capital of techno? How do you feel the techno scene and crowd has received you there?
Im from Córdoba south of Spain, but I left home when I was 18 years old. I lived in Barcelona for three years, which were incredible. During the pandemia Alexy (Angioma) and I decided to move to Berlin to focus on our career of music and development of our brand, Room Trax. The techno scene here is unique, it is an advantage to be able to listen to artists who inspire you and be able to learn something.
How is your creative process when making music? Where do you start from?
Normally I start looking for what is most important to me, which is a good kick and bassline, then I add the drums and some percussion, depending on my mood, I look for some synth pattern and samples.
