February 2012-DJ Syrena in Consolle Rosa Shokking-Approda da oltreoceano direttamente alla consolle di MRS una dj brava e sexy, che dal 1999 è protagonista dei dancefloor nelle movimentate notti di Los Angeles. Mondo Rosa Shokking is a cool fashion, art, music & culture webzine in Italy, and they interviewed me for their “Shokking Pink” female DJ section.

The full archive of my guest radio broadcast on KXLU on Jan 21st, now available. The host, Mystic Pete had lost his voice, so it was spontaneously up to me to do all the talking as well as spinning live! Loads of fun, and 2 hrs of Drum & Bass, House & Dubstep. A full journey of many of the influences that have shaped my DJ career.
We Love Venice-Event of the Week: Chicks with Decks This Friday at Area 33 & Exclusive Interview with DJ Syrena
March 3, 2011-We Love Venice “Event of the Week: Chicks with Decks This Friday at Area 33 & Exclusive Interview with DJ Syrena” by Gina Calderoni. Interview Highlights: Chicks with Decks has quickly shown to be one of the favorite monthlies in the LA UG music scene. WeLo was fortunate enough to sit down with DJ SYRENA, a recurring resident of CWD. WeLo: People associate Djing with partying, but tell us something about it that we would never know. DJ Syrena: The act of dancing has always been a source of therapy for me, I can really work out a lot of stress and issues just by losing myself in the music, while simultaneously finding myself again. I guess that is why I am compelled to be involved on the other side of it, to give back and share in the common human experience of celebrating life. WeLo: We LOVE to dance! How about your road to production, has it been a long one?! DJ Syrena: It’s been a long one. I’ve been educating myself in every aspect from the software, engineering, recording, writing and vocals. Last year saw my 1st official remix released on Playloop Records, and now working with a UK artist to release some co-productions this summer, in addition to my ongoing solo work.

A fantastic review by blogger Spineshaker of my Electro House mix “Electrofied”! Thank you!
HOT MIX ALERT: A truly excellent electro house mix with amazing tracks like the white label “Love Without My Sunglasses” …DJ Syrena has been rocking tables everywhere with a wide variety of genres including downtempo, funky house, electro house, breaks, and even drum and bass.
