Most know her from her stage name, Blossom, but Emilie Fromm has been establishing herself as one of Arizona’s strongest DJ’s and producers for the last few years now. The Phoenix native just had a stellar performance at Goldrush Music Festival last month. We were lucky enough to be apart of it and thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. Respect My Region wanted to spotlight her for her efforts at the festival, but managed to take things a step further and secure an interview with the up and coming DJ. Enjoy the exclusive interview below!
Exclusive Interview With ‘Blossom’
*This interview was edited for clarity*
RMR: Which artist(s) has had a big influence on what you’ve been able to come up as with your own sound?
B: I went to a music production/DJing school in Los Angeles during summer of 2015. One of my teachers was Night Bass legend Petey Clicks, and I remember one class he showed us how to make some signature Night Bass bass sounds. From there, I knew that this was the type of music that I wanted to make. I’ve always been a huge fan of AC Slater, and he’s been a big influence for me going forward, but that moment really cemented my path.
RMR: What is your favorite song that you’ve made?
B: I have a few upcoming releases that I’m really proud of but can’t quite talk about yet. Let’s just say, it’s been really cool to work with vocalists that help to elevate my ideas, and I can’t wait to show people some of these tracks that I’ve been working on.
RMR: If you aren’t making music, what can Emilie be found doing for fun?
B: Since I graduated from ASU in December 2017, I’ve been in music mode pretty much full time. Right now while I’m grinding, I really like to spend a lot of time with my parents, boyfriend, and dogs. I also try to go to the gym a few times a week since a healthy body & mind helps me to stay creative!
RMR: Where would you love to travel to if you could play anywhere in the world?
B: Both my best friend and my sister just moved to London, and I can’t wait to go visit them. I would love to play in London just so that I could spend some time with them both.
RMR: What has been a highlight in your career so far? Like a moment that has stuck out to you more than others?
B: It’s crazy how fast things move once the ball starts rolling. I think my happiest moments so far have been releasing my first ever original on my dream label Night Bass and getting the approval of artists I’ve been looking up to for years. However, the best is yet to come. I am currently working on an EP, and that has been an incredible experience for me.
RMR: If you could work with any other artist in the world that you haven’t worked with yet, who would it be?
B: I’m not sure yet. I really just want to learn as much as I can right now before I start working with more people. I love shadowing other artists so that I can take notes and ask questions; in-person learning just works a lot better for me. BIJOU, who I just released a track with on Night Bass, has been particularly helpful in this way throughout my career — always letting me sit in on his studio sessions & having the patience to answer my many questions. I really learned a ton from watching masterclasses and videos online from artists like Chris Lake and Born Dirty, but have so many more things that I’d like to ask. I would love to learn more from them.
RMR: What would you like to accomplish as a music artist with a personal audience and influence?
B: I think it’s very easy to live life in the fast lane when you’re in an industry like this, but it’s important to go deeper to create real, lasting value in what you’re doing. I’m always yearning for fulfillment in what I do, and I hope someday I can use my influence to inspire and motivate others to care about themselves, each other, and the world!
RMR: What could we expect from Blossom in the next several months or year to come?
B: I’m currently finishing up my first ever EP, but I also have a few other releases on the way before then. In the next year, I hope to start playing across the country and in the next few years, around the world. I can’t wait to see the world and play for people everywhere; I really feel like DJing is my true calling. I also have some other fun projects that I’m working on that I can’t wait to share… lots coming soon!
RMR: Last question here, when could we expect a visit from you to Seattle, Washington!?
B: The moment I get that call, I’ll let you know 🙂
