Hoops DJs are going to keep the Bacardi Express crowd entertained between sets, the three ladies, Anna Lunoe, Ninalasvegas and Bad Ezzy are the ladies who are giving Australian DJing a serious makeover, with lipstick and bling. We caught up with DJ Bad Ezzy from Hoops about Bacardi Express…

Everyone is making a big deal about you being three girl djs, how does this make you feel?

DJ Bad Ezzy : Well really we're just 3 djs! The fact that we're girls isn't such a big deal. We kind of hope people like us for our shows and music rather than just because we're girls.


What excites you about the Bacardi Express tour?

DJ Bad Ezzy : Being to play a bunch of shows with some great bands and finally finding out what crazy stuff really goes on the train....


Describe Hoops in 3 words:

DJ Bad Ezzy : More is more.


Was there a moment when you knew you had made it, in your industry?

DJ Bad Ezzy : I don't think any of us have ever really considered if we've "made it" or not to be honest. We just have fun doing what we do. It's definitely exciting and gratifying when we get asked to play with an artist we really admire though!


Did you have any pre-conceived ideas about the music industry?

DJ Bad Ezzy : Sex, drugs, rock n' roll? We've all been involved in the music industry for a while in different capacities before we started Hoops, so there wasn't too much that could shock us.


What music/artists do you listen to when you are not playing your own?

DJ Bad Ezzy : I think all 3 of us have eclectic tastes and would definitely be listening to things you wouldn't expect us to be listening to in downtime. Talking Heads, D'angelo, Qtip, pixies, Pavement, Earth Wind and Fire, Radiohead etc etc


What is your favourite part about performing live?

DJ Bad Ezzy : The massive adrenalin rush and seeing the crowd getting into it.


What/who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?

DJ Bad Ezzy : Samantha Lim of teenagersintokyo fame, Sheila E and Lisa "left eye" Lopez.


What is the biggest challenge you have faced along the way to your musical success?

DJ Bad Ezzy : Costume dilemmas.
