Name:

Eve Falcon
Born: Brooklyn, NY. Grew up in Allentown, PA
Years spinning:
On and off at home for 4 years. A year playing out.
Music types: Melodic, progressive. Varies anywhere from dirty, crunchy progressive house to nu-skool breaks.
Influences: The ever-evolving dance culture. From funk to disco, to new wave to acid, to industrial to the early days of techno to the producers who are creating new genres of music and dare to push boundaries. Also WMUH (the radio station I grew up DJing on), the Beatles (talk about songwriting!), Spundae (my second home) and my musical family.

She exudes an enormous amount of energy while spinning her sets, and is known for her fabulous dance moves while behind the decks. You know her when you see her: she's only 5' tall, yet larger than life, and did I mention red-hot? Her name is Eve Falcon. She's making a name for herself in the music world - and people are starting to take notice. Not only is she starring in the motion picture documentary "Girl"along with Sandra Collins and DJ Rap, she is also featured in June's issue of BPM Magazine as one of their "Next on the Decks” winners for her mix, "Slowburn."

This sexy lady isn't new to the scene, in fact she was born into a family headed by a seasoned jazz musician who toured with the biggest and best artists in the business. Growing up around music inspired her and helped pave the path of what would turn out to be a lucrative career in music. Eve is now taking over a whole new genre of music, going from classical and jazz to high energy dance music, and she isn't getting any complaints. In fact, her message boards are buzzing with compliments and booking inquiries! You can read all about her in this in-depth interview with reporter Annalee.

Annalee: How did U get started?

Eve Falcon: I had just moved to LA after living in New Mexico for two years. This was 1998. My boyfriend and I got a place together and he had a turntable setup. I guess I was just curious and started playing around. I'd go through phases where I'd play a lot and then I would just let them get cobwebs. One day I just decided I was going to buy my own records and see what could happen. Well, let's just say I've bought a LOT of records since that fateful day. ;)

What was the 1st record you ever bought?

I don't know the exact one, but I know one of the very first albums I ever bought was The Sugarhill Gang. I memorized "Rapper's Delight." Hmm, come to think of it, I memorized Blondie's "Rapture" too! Maybe I was meant to rap?… Uhhhh, no!

What/Where was your 1st gig?

A friend's house party. I was white-knuckled and shaking. I'd only been spinning my own records seriously for 3 months. Not a bad first gig actually. I was happy to lose my DJ virginity and was anxious to start "getting around town" so-to-speak. ;)

How did you end up in Los Angeles?

Whew. That's a loaded question. The short version is that I moved from New York City to live in New Mexico for a few years-- kind of a life detour. For my day job, I'm a TV Producer, so it was either move back to New York or try out LA. Since I already did New York, I decided to come La La land.

Do you currently have any residencies?

I have a weekly at Groove Fitness in Hollywood - a 24 hour gym with Live DJs. I also have a biweekly at The In-Crowd at Boardners also in Hollywood. I'm starting to play a new night in Miami at Nikki Beach and there's talk of bringing me out monthly for that as well.
Do you currently have any albums out? I have two live mixes that have been very well-received. Aurora and Slowburn. My mix, Slowburn, was just picked as a winner of BPM Magazine's "Next on the Decks" contest. Very exciting!

Are you in the studio now, do we have anything to look forward to in the near future, maybe some collaboration with someone else?

At this point, I've been focusing mainly on DJing. Up to the time I was playing records out, I was collaborating with different artists as a singer/writer and co-producer. I definitely plan to produce and sing again when the time is right. I'm already thinking of great people I'd like to work with.

What do you think about all this mainstream techno on the radio these days? Do you think it is good for the scene or are you 100% against it selling out?

Haha- I very rarely listen to the radio but as a figurative question… I don't see anything wrong with it. If people like the mainstream techno they hear on the radio, maybe it will turn them on to new kinds of music they never would have listened to. I'm all for expanding musical horizons.

What type of music do you listen to when you are not spinning?

Zero 7, Art of Noise, Cocteau Twins, Hybrid, Deepsky, Brazilian music, Jazz (not the smooth kind), Beatles, Kate Bush, my brother (and violinist) Ted Falcon, my father (and guitarist) Marvin Falcon, various mix CDs, nostalgia music-- industrial, disco… it keeps going and going.

What are your thoughts on the scene right now locally?

I spend most of my time at nights like Spundae and Giant. Couple that with all of the wonderful monthlies, weeklies and one-offs with great talent and people and I'm a happy girl. I feel rather spoiled actually with the quality of talent that is brought in time after time. Kudos to the promoters who have made LA a great club town… They are nurturing our love for music and providing a quality club scene.


What are you thoughts on the Rave Act? Are you surprised by the fact that they snuck it into the Amber Alert bill?

I believe the name of the act had to be changed to the "Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act" since it came across as discriminatory towards raves. I personally think it's a cheap disguise. Since there was no public notice, hearing or debate in Congress, I think Joe Biden committed legislative abuse by tagging it on to a surefire bill such as the Amber Alert. Hopefully the ACLU will be on their toes for this one.


Do any favorite moments in your career come to mind?

Playing at Ultra for the 2003 WMC and at the Giant-Gen/Art Fashion show at the Shrine Auditorium. Both were spontaneous and wonderful. Also at Circus for Spotlight.

In the many places you have performed, which venue is your most favorite?

The main room at Circus. Hands down! I hope to do that again someday soon.

What is your current Goal as a DJ?

Play as much as possible and use my success to help others.

Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?

In Los Angeles living in the Hollywood Hills, and making/playing beautiful music.

What advice would you give to the young girls that are out there thinking about buying some tables and learning to spin some tunes?

There are many DJs out there that would be more than happy to give advice. There are also many DJ workshops popping up here and there. It takes a lot of practice and patience to learn but if you stick with it, you will get it. Most importantly, do it because you love the music! I've been obsessed with all kinds of music since I was very little. This love and excitement I have translates as energy to the crowd. DJing is much more than just playing records. It's taking people on a journey through music. It's a very emotional thing for me.

Tell me a little about being a female DJ, have you ever had any bad experiences due to this? Or, on the contrary, have you had any advantages due to being female?

No bad experiences as of yet. Since the scene still has mostly male DJs, I would be lying if I said there weren't advantages to being a woman. However, as a woman, you have to prove yourself that much more. I'm grateful for every experience I have playing out and always trying to learn how I can become a better artist.

What would you be doing right now if you never bought that 1st record and became a DJ?

I would probably still be collaborating with different music producers on dance tracks.

OK: Last question and the silliest of all…. What, in your opinion, is the greatest aspect of being a DJ?

Not silly at all! It would definitely be the adrenaline of being on-stage playing music I love for an appreciative audience.

Thanks Eve!!

Thank you for interviewing me!

 

OFFICIAL BIO

"Eve Falcon put together a solid mix of progressive dancefloor fodder. She displayed superb mixing skills and deft programming. If this chick keeps rocking it like this, she'll be on the radar in no time. Keep an eye out."
-BPM Magazine, June 2003

Eve Falcon grew up surrounded by classical and jazz musicians. Her father, renowned guitarist Marvin Falcon, toured the world with Harry Belafonte and recorded with Paul Winter. So it's natural that Eve become a… DJ? Well, not right off the bat. Eve spent much of her childhood studying piano techniques and music theory. As she grew older, she found herself drawn to the exotic sound of electronic music and synthesizers, and hosted numerous radio shows in an effort to bring her newfound passion to the listening public. Her natural talents as a singer and songwriter led to collaborations with a wide variety of artists and garnered significant exposure in the club and dance world. One key project was Eve's vocal contribution to the classic trancer "Ode to Our" by Sandra Collins and Deepsky. Caned by DJs around the globe, "Ode to Our" ended up topping the 1998 charts and recently saw new life via a fresh remix by Steve Porter.

The transition from recording artist to DJ was quite natural for Eve. With years of performing, singing, songwriting, and radio broadcasting under her belt, she has settled into life behind the decks very comfortably. Eve has successfully mastered playing such diverse styles ranging from tech-trance to progressive house, nu-skool breaks to experimental. She wastes little time classifying the music she plays-as long as it moves her, Eve's musical style knows no boundaries! Her mix CDs Aurora and Slow Burn are testimony to this philosophy.

Eve was recognized by BPM Magazine as a "Next on the Decks" winner for her mix, Slowburn. BPM also tells readers to "keep an eye out" for Eve and that "if she keeps rocking it like this, she'll be on the radar in no time." Looks like it's already happening!

You can catch Eve playing at top venues such as the Circus Disco, Hollywood Palace and Giant in Los Angeles, as well as XM Radio and the 2003 Ultra Music Festival at WMC in Miami. You will also be seeing Eve on the big screen in a new documentary film about female DJs called "GIRL." She is being featured alongside such legendary artists as Sandra Collins and DJ Rap. Check www.girlthemovie.com for more details.

Eve Falcon has a gift... an undeniable energy that has brought dancefloors to their knees through her programming and performance. See for yourself!
