Tatiana Fontes hails from Florianópolis, Brazil, and she’s a beautiful model, a talented actress, and an amazing DJ as well. While LA is her “official” home, luckily for us (and for all of Las Vegas…), she’s been making regular DJ appearances at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan. With unlimited energy, she’s been working her DJ magic on the decks and driving the crowds into a frenzy every month. We wanted to chat with her prior to her appearance (this Friday August 5th!), and find out more about one of the hottest & talented DJs spinning today in Vegas….
You’re appearing at Marquee in Las Vegas this Friday night! What are you looking forward to the most?
TF: I’ve been playing in Vegas a lot. I’m there every month…Lately twice a month at Marquee, so I’m looking forward to seeing some of the familiar Vegas faces that I’ve been seeing frequently at my gigs. I love my Vegas crowd.
Are you one of those DJs who likes to plan your sets in advance, or do you like to “shoot from the hip” depending on the mood of the crowd?
TF: I like to feel the crowd. But at the same time I have a style that is becoming my own, so the set changes depending on the crowd, but I stay truthful to who I am. I try to keep it fresh, presenting new remixes and bootlegs of the new stuff and the classics. When I feel that the crowd is a little more open-minded, I like to mix in some underground stuff. I love when I can do that.
