Age: 31

Work: Research coordinator and fundraiser

First time I went to Culture Box… was 18 September 2015 at a What Happens club night with Tim Andresen and James Zabiela. It was also the first weekend in Copenhagen after I moved here.

I come here because… of good line ups, sound system and atmosphere. It is my favorite club and the best place to party in Copenhagen!

My favorite DJ or live act is… James Zabiela along with Sasha and John Digweed. And I am really happy and excited with the Copenhagen scene, which I started to discover more lately.

What I love most about Culture Box… (1) the atmosphere, all the nice people, the good sound system and very good line ups (2) Black box, front left corner – where to find me or avoid me (3) that Culture Box always stay in touch with customers and listen to their suggestions, and always try to improve.

In the future I’d like to see… (1) Henry Saiz – he never played at Culture Box and I think it would fit (2) I always get very nicely surprised by the line ups, so I am always looking forward for the event announcements (3) the events, alternative to the classical club nights. The Simon Littauer concert was really nice.

I think the future of the electronic music scene in Denmarks is going to be... AMAZING. I like how everyone within the scene are friends and respect and support each other’s work. I think this is something you don’t get to see happen in many places, and it will help build and grow the scene very nicely. The local DJs are super good. If corona strikes again outside of Denmark, we will happily party with a pure Copenhagen line up.

I think the future for electronic music is… expansion. Read here in detail: “Modelling song popularity as a contagious process”, or here for a shorter version: “Mathematicians discover music really can be infectious – like a virus”.

What I love most about electronic music is… that it can take you to many different places.

My dancing is… continuous, from arriving till leaving Culture Box. I don’t like to waste time sitting.

What I love most about dancing is… that it is the best, relaxing exercise.
