First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?

Hello! I, Steph Tsunami, am a queer female DJ born and raised in Vancouver, BC, who is an all-around music-obsessed person. I have been DJing and performing around the city and province for about five and a half years and have been fully immersed in the Vancouver and BC electronic music scene for about 12 years, from my early days of raving to now. High-energy dance music of all genres is my thing, and when I’m not DJing, I am exploring all of the local music venues and supporting as many local artists as I possibly can. Some people don’t know this, but I’m a teacher by day as well!

Monstercat Compound takes place on August 20, and you’ll be taking part in the incredible event. How does it feel to be on the lineup this year? Have you been before?

It feels absolutely incredible, honestly! When I got the message that I would be on this year’s lineup, I was buzzing so hard and couldn’t believe it. To be on a lineup with this abundance of talent is a huge honour and I am super grateful.

I have been to a few Monstercat Compounds, yes! It is one of the events I look most forward to every summer because it has everything you could possibly want in an event – incredible music, food, activities, atmosphere, and it’s free! It’s also an amazing opportunity to connect with a bunch of friends and acquaintances in the industry who are all in one place. It gets a crazy turnout every year!

Monstercat has built up a roster of world-renowned artists over the last decade. Of the other artists on the Compound lineup, who are you most excited to check out?

I am definitely most excited to see Whipped Cream! Believe it or not, in all my years of attending events, I have never seen an IRL Whipped Cream set, considering she’s a BC artist and has played here many times. I consider her to be a huge influence and role model of mine and can’t wait to see her bring the energy she always brings to Vancouver. Also hyped to see all the other incredible female talent on the roster, such as Akylla, Jessu & Pyka, New Girl, and Unmarried Woman.

Explain what your performance will be like in 10 words or less.

Lots of energy, lots of genres, lots of vibes!

Last but not least, what do you have planned for the remainder of 2022?

I have been working on music production and have a couple of remixes of tunes I hope to put out to the world before the end of the year. Once those are out, I hope to get started on my first original track. Other than that, keep playing fun shows and continuing to deliver performances that make people smile (maybe even some shows in other provinces, too, we’ll see)!
