Rissa Garcia Untitled Music Q&A and Mix

rissagarcia_banner.jpg

What I admire about Rissa Garcia is that she is just doing what she loves week in week out. You never hear any bullshit from her, she is consistently working hard at her passions, be that DJ’ing or her well respected label Nightchild Records. For someone at the heart of the NYC club scene and one of the most connected people I know I actually know zero about the person behind it all. In an era of obsessive gender equality she is the real poster child for the scene - time-served, hard-working, low-profile and passionate about quality over hype.

Music, most importantly. People that doubted me, people that hope I fail at every turn. And honestly,I really can’t fathom a life without doing this so I’ll do whatever it takes to keep on doing it. A few years ago, I decided I didn’t want to live the robot lifestyle of working 9-5 day in and day out while daydreaming of doing what I really wanted to do and what I felt so deeply to my core I really should be doing.

 

From the outside world you’re very low profile but very successful - what’s the secret of your success?
