True Life: I want to be a DJ. But not just any old DJ– I want to be Rebecca and Fiona. Cute clothes featuring loads of crop tops and platform shoes, to-die for hair anywhere from bright pink and blazing turquoise to best kinds of blonde, and amazing voices and dance moves that combined make for the best songs that you can’t help but ridiculously dance to– these girls are the epitome of girl power and house music. You may recognize them from hit tunes like “Bullets” or from their collabo with Kaskade (for what is one of my fave songs), “Turn It Down” (below). But whatever it may be, this Swedish duo knows how to use everything from vocals to choreography to fashion to instantly reel and lure in the crowds. While the DJ world is mostly taken over with male power like everyone from Avicii to Tiesto to David Guetta, these to girls know how to cut through the noise and make a name and presence for themselves. I got to catch up with the stylish pair a few weeks back when they made a quick pit-stop in LA to perform at Create Nightclub— and let me tell you, that show was probably one of the best I’ve seen in a while!

R&F: We like Oliver, The Soft Moon, Saint Etienne, and Carli.

R&F: We always love to play festivals, everywhere! Because the spirit is nice and people are in a good mood and can discover new music.
