American DJ and producer Sky Deep explains the inspiration behind her music, and why she moved to Berlin


For years, people told American DJ and producer Sky Deep that she should go to Berlin. It made her curious, so she planned a tour stop in the city with her band at the time. Now she’s lived in Berlin for three years.

When asked about the current atmosphere in the U.S., Sky Deep said “as a black, queer woman,” she is terrified to return to her home country. She continued, “But I actually experience fear in several places in the world so I don’t think I can escape it.”

Sky Deep joined Monika Müller-Kroll to talk about her involvement with a new festival called We Make Waves as well as the inspiration behind her track, “Coconut Oil.”
