#MISSGUIDEDDISCOVERED: FLEXMAMI| March 23, 2016
We caught up with super creative FlexMami, a DJ and radio presenter from Sydney with a passion for blogging. We are addicted to her abstract way of dressing, showing us how to rock a bold colour and not cut corners when it comes to your personal style.
Tell us about yourself?
Ola! I’m FlexMami; DJ, Radio Presenter, ambassador of self-love, curator of important looks and one-liners. On any one occasion you can find me eating burgers, researching my personality type and brainstorming Instagram captions.
What’s the best gig you have played?
To date, it would have to be a Sidechains party in Sydney. It’s a local party run by some super amazing creative (#humblebrag, myself included) all with a focus on bringing the flavour ~internet music~ into a IRL venue. We’re encouraged to delve deep and play obscure tracks, and that’s always an A+ time.
Who’s your favourite artist and why?
Ooh that’s too tricky! I feel like I need to break it down into producer, singer, rapper etc. It’s too hard to pick one. Right now, I’m bingeing heavily on Tory Lanez.
Describe your sound in five words…
HYPE CLUB TRAXXX – IMPECCABLE TASTE
What are you working on at the moment?
Right now I’m working on the Sidechains Radio show, which I co-present with Denzel Sterling (CEO of Sidechains). It’s super rewarding as I get to do what I love – play phenomenal music, chat to sensational people and banter. Every. Single. Week. It’s on Fridays at 8am and 8pm on FBiRadio.com
What’s on the agenda for 2016?
GIGS! I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to play an insane amount of amazing parties, so I’d love that to continue this year. I’ve also just started my fashion/music/lifestyle blog www.flexmami.com, which is a huge focus for me. It’s long overdue, so I’m really hyped to get that off the ground!
Who is your guilty pleasure most played?
Oooh, y’all are killing me. I’d have to say my most played track is DJ Sliink’s remix of Loveeee Song by Rihanna + Future. It’s quintessential Jersey Club and it’s a sure fire way to take any set to the next level.
What’s the last thing you listened to?
Designer Drug by Mayer Hawthorne. It’s this posi, vibey club/funk/disco-esqe track. Makes me want to put on an afro wig, high-waisted flared jeans, HUGE hoop earrings and go rollerblading.
Disclaimer: I can’t rollerblade :’(
What song do you want to be playing as you walk into the club?
Oh, oh, oh! It would have to be Buzzin’ by Mann and 50 Cent. I have only the fondest memories of that track. It’s a failsafe party starter.
If you could collaborate with anyone who would it be?
Solange Knowles, without a doubt. I feel an affinity towards her.
What’s your spirit animal?
A fox! I came to that conclusion based on my MBTI tbh. The internet tells me that based on this my levels of creativity peak at night (true), I’m witty, intelligent and crafty (also true).
Who are you currently stalking on Instagram?
What makes you laugh?
A+ banter. I’m pretty generous with my laughter. It doesn’t take a lot to get a chuckle from FlexMami.
What’s your secret addiction?
None of my addictions are secret – I’m big on indulging and celebrating lavish behaviour haha. Hence why I named the party I run Luxury Plus. Back to the point, I’m all about burgers, juice and Netflix; probably in that order.
What would your superhero power be?
The ability to summon anything into existence. It would be unlimited and there would be no negative consequences.
What was the first thing you did thing morning?
Hit the snooze button, then caught an Uber to work because I was going to be late. Classic me.
Tell us something weird about yourself?
I once went to Malaysia on vacation. I had temporary henna of a tiger ‘tattooed’ on my forearm. Two years later it’s still there – albeit faded – but noticeable.
What item of clothing can’t you live without?
A midi skirt for sure. It’s fail safe, appropriate for any occasion and very flattering.
What items do you make sure you pack on tour/gigs?
Multiple USBs. Murphy’s Law y’all. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong so prepare for the worst. You’ll always learn the hard way though.
Who is your style icon and why?
How many times am I allowed to plug Solange in this interview? She’s beyond inspiring and her aesthetic is so consistent.
Where do you look for fashion inspiration?
Most definitely, Instagram. It’s the ultimate inspiration vault – you can’t go wrong. Always give credit where credit is due though!
What best describes your style on stage?
– An element that makes you feel next level fabulous
– An element that makes you want to stay home and admire your beauty because it’s just too good to share
–A look that photographs sensationally from all angles
What’s your favourite fashion trend this season and why?
I’m not necessarily big on trends. I’m a creature of comfort, so I typically wear a variation of an outfit that’s worked for me in the past – making slight variations depending on my mood.
