We caught up with the blonde herself to find out more...

Summer's coming, what's on the agenda?
"I'm planning on spending the rest of the summer bare foot frolicking in fields, dancing to wonderful music in this glorious summer we're having! Doing Lovebox, Secret Garden Party, Field Day, a load of lovely London gigs & warehouse parties, skipping off to play for you guys, then boarding a ferry to the Isle of Wight for Bestival to play before heading out to NY!"

Tell us about your latest projects?
"My latest & most exciting project is the my party 'Lovesick' which together my party partner launched at Cargo, Shoreditch last month...twas a huge success, being likened to something from a Bacardi ad, where party goers laden in fancy dress took to the tables, in a room full of hearts & bunting & burst out to the terrace dancing to the summer sounds of myself & our DJ's! The next installment is on the 7th August @ Cargo & we're also hosting all dayers at The Old Queens head, Islington under the same name. Fun times indeed!"

What current artists are you drawing inspiration from right now?
"Mystery Jets, Delphic, Friendly Fires, Loose Cannons. I love big carnival sounds, lots of percussion, music to make you feel good!"

What are you favourite/biggest tunes of the moment?
"I'm a big fan of 'Superbeat' by The Slips, Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP – 'We No Speak Americano', anything from Fenech Soler but generally enjoying anything with a summery beat!"

What can we expect from your show at Stop Making Sense?
"Exactly that...a show! Big bass-lines, big fun, massive sounds, a one girl carnival & a lot of gyrating on the decks!"

Who are you most looking forward to seeing play at the festival?
"Friendly Fires...if they bring their usual cow-bells, I'll be a happy girl!"

Any unusual festival tips?
"Always take a couple of pink wigs, an air horn & plenty of baby wipes..."
