DJANEMAG had a talk with DJ Lud Prado, read our interview below! All exclusive with! 

DJANEMAG: When did you decide to pursue music as a career?
LUD PRADO: Exactly 2 and a half years ago, I was 29 years old and it came to mind the desire to take initiative in taking a DJ course. I always wanted to, but I never ran after. Until I took courage and did it! Consequently, I loved it! I've always been to parties since I was very young, always part of the youngest in the class. I always had a good taste in music and couldn't stay a weekend without going to a party. When I actually took the course, I found that I loved that and didn't understand why I didn't take the course before. Since then, I was playing not a party of friends there, another one here. But it was taking such a fast turn that it became work and not a hobby. Where I decided to focus and study more. Always following the genre of house, deep house to a tech house.

DJANEMAG: What has been the highlight of your career so far? What are you looking for next year?
LUD PRADO: I believe my career gained strength of 1 year and a half, I'm being one of the DJs most sought today, it makes me where I began to make very relevant parties in the market with other DJs I admire very much the same line-up, example: Alok. And from now on, it's focusing on new track releases.
DJANEMAG: What was the best and hardest thing about being a female DJ?
LUD PRADO: It is hard to get recognition in any way, it goes beyond being female. Conquering your space requires work, dedication, you give up so many things, and when you're a woman, the load is a little heavier because so many male DJs don't want a woman to go that far! There is ego everywhere and the song is no different, but being harder I can say that each victory makes me feel so much gratitude for having gone through countless episodes and being able to get past them and being here.

I will remain firm and strong; I believe the female DJ scene is featured all over the world.
DJANEMAG: What is the most significant track you have produced? Why?

LUD PRADO: I really like the lyrics of my track "I'm single", because it is very feminine, but will soon come very good news!

DJANEMAG: What inspires you to keep making music?
LUD PRADO:  I think music makes the soul happy and soothes bad thoughts. I enjoy producing and seeing the end result beyond what I expected.
DJANEMAG: Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases. Any collaboration?
LUD PRADO: I have a goal of releasing 6 tracks by the end of 2020 with amazing collabs.
DJANEMAG: Who would be a dream collaboration? Do you have a pair of DJs / DJs you dream of producing a track?
LUD PRADO: Yes, I'm a fan of David Guetta! It would be a dream!
DJANEMAG: What are some of the most demanding DJs in the industry that you think are making really cool music today?
LUD PRADO:  In Brasil - Alok and Vintage Culture.  Abroad, I really like the production of David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Armin Van Buuren, Calvin Harris and many others.
DJANEMAG: Which social platforms do you like to use and why? Do you communicate with fans there?
LUD PRADO: I use Instagram more, where I connect daily with the public and show my day -a- day  work and travel, great facilitates in connection to everyone.

DJANEMAG: What message do you have for all your fans out there?
LUD PRADO: This year is being very significant for me. Where I have a wonderful team preparing my shows in detail to be better and better. Await news soon.

DJANEMAG: What else are you in love with outside of music?
LUD PRADO: I'm a very active girl and I can't stay still. Whenever I'm working I have a lot of fun and it makes me fall in love more and more with my DJ career. With new discovery comes a new path and a new passion in my area. I also really enjoy hanging out with my friends when I'm off.
