“It’s beyond words how ecstatic I am!” Tenashar tells DJ Mag when we present her with the news that she’s entered the Top 100 DJs poll. Even shedding a few tears, she’s clearly blown away with the excitement of it all. “I live for being a DJ and there really couldn't be a better reward than celebrating with my fans.” Her very earliest roots in performing to a crowd started when she was a drummer in a band at six-years-old.
She lives in Hong Kong but because she has a Spanish grandmother, has spent many years in Spain. “Being in Ibiza and going mental on a console only seemed like a natural progression,” she says of her early club experiences. Tenashar might be described as a 'model DJ' but her heart is set on rebelling against premixed, commercial pop music. “My passion is EDM and I intend to stay true to that,” she reveals. “DJing comes first of course, but like every DJ, we do need to do photoshoots to promote albums, tracks and flyers.”
