There is plenty of talent to go around in the Ronson household: with a Grammy Award winning producer for a brother and a famous fashion designer for a sister – Samantha Ronson holds her own, DJ-ing the biggest parties all around the world – serving up everything from old school disco to funk and 90’s R’n’B, as long as they get the crowd dancing. Before tearing up the decks at the CÉ LA VI Night Race Weekend this year, we managed to steal a tiny spot of spare time in her busy schedule to speak to her- but only for a minute.
PS: Right off the bat, what is a project you are currently working on?

Any chance of more future collaborations with your brother (and do you enjoy working with him)?
I hope so… I love working with my brother!
Is there any sibling rivalry between you and your other famous siblings?

Describe in a sentence your approach to DJ-ing.

Name something you are currently obsessed with.
