Blond:ish to Paris Hilton and Aspiring Female DJs: "If You Want Respect, Don't DJ Topless"

Dumb blonde bimbo DJs? The EDM industry already has one Paris Hilton.

Montreal's Blond:ish, on the other hand, isn't messing around. With a reputation for driving, body-jacking DJ sets, the duo exploded onto the international scene this past year with some auspicious tech-house releases on Kompakt and Get Physical.

Crossfade caught up with Anstascia D'Elene of Blond:ish ahead of this Saturday's performance at the Electric Pickle with SAFE Miami and the Wagon Repair label's Konrad Black. Topics of conversation included breakthrough success, overcoming female stereotypes in the dance music industry, and a few pointers for Paris Hilton.
