Hi, my name is Albana Abazi and I’m a 23 years young DJ/producer from London, UK.
I’ve actually always liked dance music, but I started taking more of an interest in making dance music in 2011 when I was studying music A level. I’m actually really into metal and post-hardcore music. I used to listen to a lot of Electrocore and ‘trance metal’ back when I used to think hearing synths in metal was cool haha.

How and when did you fall in love with Hardcore?

During my A levels, I was into hard trance and trance, but when I went to university in 2013, that was when I really wanted to start making hard dance music. I went to my first rave in 2013 – Frantic at KOKO, it was amazing and I was convinced that I wanted to go to raves more! I looked deeper into harder styles of dance music and was inspired by mainly Happy Hardcore and UK hardcore, I thought this was the limit of hard dance for me! There’s something about these genres that just leave a smile on my face, it’s just so cute! I’ve grown to like some Hardstyle and Hardcore now though!

 You have recently played at a Headhunterz event – where was this?

Yeah! This was on the 7th of February at the Ministry of Sound! Such a big, popular venue for hard dance music right?!

RIGHT!!!!!

HH Feb

Who else rocked the house there for you?

DJ Ravine, from Australia, played in the second largest room, 103, where I also played. Clefheart, from Italy, played after Headhunterz in the main box, Spyro also played in the loft and there were many other DJs playing all sorts of hard dance music; uptempo, Hardcore etc.

 

How did the set go?

Welllllllll honestly, the set didn’t last too long as ministry of Sound closed room 103 at 4.30am and not 5 of which I was supposed to finish at. The audience loved what I played in those 10 minutes though! It’s fine though, I’m sure I’ll have other opportunities like this!

Yes! Unfortunately I have not released any of my own music yet because I don’t think the songs are ready yet! I’m hoping to release some singles this summer though! However, you can actually listen to a few of my tracks in mixes that I’ve released in my Mixcloud! (for UK hardcore – look out for the ones with lots of piano parts!)

Hardcore dance music is difficult to find in London these days, it’s all happening outside in the country. If you are ever in London and you want to go raving, follow: https://www.facebook.com/hardcorelondon/
