11 Things you need to know about Stacie Todd!
Just days before she was getting ready to deck herself out in snow gear ahead of Jindabyne’s Snowtunes festival, blonde bombshell Stacie Todd dropped by MTV Australia HQ!
Aside from dishing on her upcoming Snowtunes set, which FYI will include “a lot of new music and edits,” we talked about where she’s from, her life in the U.S, her weird AF pre-show ritual and everything else in between.
Here are 11 things you NEED to know about Stacie Todd…
1. She grew up in Perth but lives in NYC!
“I grew up in Perth in Western Australia,” Todd explains, adding that her fam is definitely not the musical type. Her brother’s a plumber, the “complete opposite” to her and while her “mum’s always been into music” she doesn’t have “a musical background at all.”
On where she’s based now: “I’m based in New York and Chicago.”
“I loveee Chicago! It could be my favourite place, because the music scene for house started in Chicago. So they love their music and they know their music really well.”
2. She wanted to be a weather girl
“I always wanted to be in front of a camera, doing something, but also bringing modelling into it. I always thought they were up there because they were pretty, but no, you need a degree.”
3. She’s got a whole lot of love for the NERVO gals
“I really like NERVO,” she said. “I think that their image and how they represent woman is so good and especially because they are Australian.”
“They are really inspiring, I really look up to them. They were on at Ultra and I was just watching them. I learnt so much from them and they’re so down to earth.”
4. Her biggest musical influences are Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
“Watching them perform is out of this world. Everything they do, even the way they dance on top of the DJ booth in sync.”
5. Her pre-show ritual involves drinking red wine and listening to country music
“I always have like a little routine in the hotel room before I play. I’m always having red wine and dancing to country music. Everyone thinks it’s just so weird but I always listen to country music before I DJ.”
“My Pandora is always ‘Nashville.’ Just the soundtrack.”
6. She always travels with a tube of Vegemite
“I always have to have my Papaw cream and I take a tube of vegemite, no matter what. I have vegemite on toast every day, and a Milo.”
7. When she’s in Sydney, you can find her hanging out in Manly
“The beaches there are so beautiful. It reminds me of Miami a little bit, but I actually think Manly is prettier. The people, the surfers; no ones wearing shoes, they’re all just in their wetsuits, it’s great.”
8. Ultra Korea blew her socks off
“I haven’t done much of Asia and they didn’t really know much about me, but when I got on stage, their faces just lit up, I was blown away. I was definitely the only blond there and I’m really tall too. When I’m wearing heels, I’m six-foot-two in that DJ booth and everyone was just like, ‘who is this giant?’”
9. She has the perfect ‘smoke bomb’ method
Stacie won’t let seeing the sunrise ruin a big night out, so if she says “I’m going home to put my phone on charge…
…”Everyone knows that’s code for ‘Stacie’s leaving’.”
10. Harry Styles once crashed her DJ booth (OMFG!!!)
Both Brooke from One Tree Hill (who Stacie is OBSESSED with btw) and 1D God Harry Styles hung out with her at a Lollapalooza after party and she was star struck big time!
“I was DJ-ing all night and Sophia walks in – Brooke from One Tree Hill- and she comes up to me and she’s like ‘DJ Woo!’ and she comes up and starts dancing with me. I’m like, ‘oh my God, oh my God’ and then Harry Styles walked in and I was like, ‘this is NOT happening.’ He was in the DJ booth. He kept asking for a hip-hop song.
11. Hey, Steve Aoki! Stacie wants to crash your stage
“I want to go on his boat in the crowd. I really want to throw cake at someone and his stages look so fun.”
