Dirty Q&A: Blond:ish On Overrated DJs, Popped Cherries, Threesomes

Features

/ August 6, 2013

What’s better than two blondes who love to rave? How about two blondes who love to rave and are willing to dish out the dirt (and we mean DIRT!) in an raw interview with VIBE? Electronic duo Blond:ish (aka Anstascia D’elene and Vivie Ann Bakos) give us an outrageous insider look into their party lifestyle with answers to some tough, serious and wild questions such as overrated DJs, popped cherries and a steamy threesome.

VIBE: Are you natural blondes?
Both: ISH

Favorite “Dumb Blonde” joke?
Both: Q: What do you call a blonde with 2 brain cells? A: Pregnant.

When did you pop your studio cherry (aka first time in the studio)? Most awkward memory of that day?
Anstascia: Not really sure but I think it was in Angel Moraes’ old school studio at an after party sometime in 2007 in Montreal. He had the full analog mixing boards and it was all really confusing. I felt like I was in a drunken spaceship.
Viv: Ha, don’t remember my most awkward moment first time in a studio, but I hope one day I can twiddle as many knobs popping my real cherry as you can in the studio! All (Canadian) sarcasm aside, I feel at peace with the universe when we’re in the studio… I can spend an eternity here! Just wanna spread love through our music.

When did you pop your actual cherry? Most awkward memory of that day?
Anstascia: Well were both still virgins, but avid horse back riders in our spare time, so some people might get confused.

Which artists do you think are bit overrated this year?
Viv: Oh wow… uhm, no offense to anyone on this list, but take your pick: DJ Mag Top 100.

Which producer sports the hottest bod in the EDM circuit?
Viv: Well Seth Troxler obviously, even though we wouldn’t classify him as ‘EDM.’

Worst music career advice you ever got?
You should play commercial music so that you can pay the bills, a.k.a. the recipe for selling your soul to the devil.

If you had to have sex with one celebrity for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?
Anstascia: Mmmmm, I’m married.
Viv: Ah, nothing for the rest of life…. but a one nighter with Johnny Depp and Kate Moss together when they were younger.

Worst fashion blunder of your career? Got a photo we can share on VIBE?
Viv: Probably when Anstascia convinced us to be raver kids like five Halloweens ago… We had the whole Hello Kitty and pacifier thing down. Worst idea ever. Picture??? (we’ll look).

What’s one stereotype that is true of all blondes?
Both: Not all dumbs are blonde.
