Djanemag: Kate Ear is you real name, isn't it? A lot of Djanes use nicknames! Why did you decide to use your real name becoming a Dj, but not a nickname? 

Kate Ear: My name is Ekaterina Egorova, although I’m Russian, I live in Spain since I was 6 years old, my real name is very difficult to pronounce for the Spaniards, even for Europeans, so decided to use another surname as a nickname. 

Djanemag: Tell me please, how did you begin with music and Djaying? Was it your dream from early years? 

Kate Ear: In Russia where I was born and lived until the age of 6, I received classes of music and piano, although now I can hardly play the piano because I stopped practicing, those classes received helped me to improve my ear. Years ago when, I was still a child I dreamed to dedicate myself to music as a DJ, but I proposed it completely seriously at age 17. I took a professional DJ course at a college, and here I am. Now I am 21 years old. 

Djanemag: Do you travel a lot? What countries or cities do you like most of all and why? 

Kate Ear: On the two years I’ve been a professional DJ I’ve traveled more than I expected, I’ve been to France, a couple of times, Frejus and Saint Raphael, also in Ibiza, both places have me love, especially de White Island. Particularly, I also enjoy a lot when I go to Lleida (Spain), the audience is great. 

Djanemag: Do you think that «Dj world» is men's world? In your opinion is it harder for girl to become famous Dj? 

Kate Ear: Until nowadays there have been few girls that have been thrown in this profession. Today things have changed, although it’s true there may be a boom and too many women DJ’s emerging. This hurts a little de scene. It’s hard being a woman because there are many women trying it, but I think what makes success is talent, time, have some luck and know how to take it. 

Djanemag: What challenges have you faced being a female DJ and how did you overcome them? 

Kate Ear: Being a woman makes the audience become prejudiced against your work, most often is that someone that has never listened to you thinks you’re just a pretty face or a pair of tits, even thinks that your set is prerecorded. I try to show my talent and silence the gossips, but not always achieved. 

Djanemag: Could you describe your feelings when you play music? 

Kate Ear: It’s very hard to describe, it’s a feeling of euphoria and satisfaction, if you love music Djaying it before an audience is the best thing you can experience. 

Djanemag: What’s the most difficult thing about your job? 

Kate Ear: Long trips, the short time to see family, the endless hours without sleep. But, as you do what you love, you do it at ease. Also, a little, the great falsehood of certain people that you meet along the way, but it’s offset by a large number of people who deserve it, and you know in the path. 

Djanemag: Do you have any exclusive news for readers at this moment you want to share? 

Kate Ear: Right now, I’m back at school taking lessons of musical production. I hope that soon, with some help, I can perform my first single. 

Djanemag: Can you share your dreams and plans for future? What would you like to achieve? 

Kate Ear: My big dream is to Djaying at big event, at a great festival. But, I have feet on the ground and I know that the path is not easy and it’s only for a few. Although, now I’m really happy with what I’ve achieved and with being able to devote myself to this for most of my life until, in a long time, I decide to settle down.
