I am an empathetic person, and always try to understand where others are coming from, even if I disagree with them fundamentally. Intellectual curiosity is important to me, as all my relationships, romantic or otherwise, have been rooted in being able to share deep conversations and gain insight from others.
I am most passionate about music—I produce and DJ house and techno, and play guitar, bass and drums. I am also very politically passionate, especially regarding the struggle for full equality for all people; I am a socialist and feminist.
Just picking some artists at random from what I've been listening to recently: Dusky, Justin Martin, Hot Since 82, Shadow Child, Sasha, MK, Disclosure, Maya Jane Coles, Dubfire, RAC, The Magician, Moonboots, Waze & Odyssey, Daft Punk, Zed Bias, El-B, Joris Voorn.
Besides that, I love Radiohead, The Shins, Elliott Smith, RJD2, DJ Shadow, Boards of Canada, Lotus, Disco Biscuits, The Smiths, Parliament-Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Aphex Twin, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Black Sabbath, and a lot more.
