One of Denver’s resident DJ’s Sinna-G has been filling the clubs with her magical beats for the past two years.Originally from Florida, this entertainer is spreading her musical flavor with a large collection of personalized demo beats.
What is the energy like when you are spinning?
That’s a great question! My full-time job is DJ’ing at a place in downtown Denver called Maloney’s. I am there on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays unless I get booked elsewhere. Depending on the night that I am there, the energy and the pace, so to speak, definitely changes. And Fridays and Saturdays sell themselves because it’s the weekend and people are just ready to party!
What is your favorite aspect of DJing in the club scene?
It’s still all about the music for me. Getting paid for doing something that I love is just an added bonus. I got into DJing because of my love for music, and I’ve just been fortunate and blessed to make that leap into the profession full-time and earn a living from it. There is nothing like that feeling I get when I’m connected with the audience and I start jumping up and down and the rest of the crowd joins in on the jumping, for example. So the feedback and the energy that I get from people that are enjoying the music, is what I live for!
Is it difficult to stay energetic through the late night and early morning hours?
Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m a pretty energetic individual anyway! So add in the passion and energy from the music and a live audience and POOF! It’s a natural high that I ride all throughout my set! Plus each time I get ready to mix a track, it has that feeling of being a challenge and is so much fun for me and the reason why I DJ! I quit drinking alcohol back in 2003, so shots don’t apply, but I LOVE my coffee! I might have a redbull during my set if the coffee that I had early on is starting to wear off. High energy is sort of who I am.
What is your style?
In terms of my individual style in music, it would have to be more of the underground Miami-type sound that I don’t get to play often but when I do, people go nuts. Surprisingly, with this influx of club music becoming so mainstream lately, people don’t seem to mind me pushing the envelope a little and playing something that they might NOT hear on the radio.
What do you do in your free time?
Because I earn a living from working in bars/clubs, most of the time it’s actually the last place you’ll find me. Unless I’m going to support other DJs. I also host two Internet radio shows each week, so I keep pretty busy but I do love the water. I think because I’m a fire sign, water calms me down and provides this sense of tranquillity for me. You know, puts the fire out, so spending time poolside right now in this gorgeous weather is a favorite thing to do. I love to read and just hang out and relax on my days off. I can imagine that there might be this misconception about how I spend my time because I’m a DJ, and not to sound ultra boring, but I truly prefer my quiet nights at home when I’m off.
