BYO: Who are you and what is your Artist Name?
SOPHIA: I'm Sophia de Vries AKA Honey Disco.
BYO: When did you start DJing for and How did you get into it?
SOPHIA: I started djing a few years ago, I began playing whenever we had people over at our house, then at house party's. I got asked to play my first gig at Secret Garden bar then it rolled on from there. I got into it from having friends who DJ'd and watching them play.
BYO: What style of music do you like to play the most and what do you have planned for us on Sunday?
SOPHIA: My go to style of music is a mix of disco, house and funk. I've been really getting into 70's African disco, so expect to hear some tropical bangers.
BYO: Where has been the best place that you've played? Or is it just for fun like friends parties or as a creative outlet?
SOPHIA: I played a pretty fun gig recently at Freda's Disco Bongo night alongside some legendary DJ's. Although I have to say my favourite gig of 2018 has been New Years day on the Colo River with all my favourite people.
BYO: If people want to keep track of what you're up to, how could they do that?
SOPHIA: I usually post where I am playing on my instagram @sophia.devries, I also have a mix up on https://soundcloud.com/honeydisco and will be uploading more.
