Violet hails from Lisbon and has been releasing music for a few years now but really came to prominence in 2015 when she put out a cover of the classic Underground Resistance track Transitions but reinterpreted with all female vocalists for International Women’s Day. Now this track really struck a chord with people and since then she’s enlisted the talents of lots more women to reimagine a string of other dance classics from Egyptian Lover to Joe Smooth. But her talents don’t just end at reworking old masterpieces. She has a string of excellent releases in her own right, runs the Lisbon based Radio Quantica and has recently started her own imprint Naïve which has her personality stamped all over it. We caught up with Violet for a broad ranging chat, taking in a whole host of topics from the intricate planning of her DJ sets, ways to fight imposter syndrome and we even end with a quote from the mighty Kanye West.
