She has plenty to tell. From the dancefloor of The Saint to gigs at legendary New York clubs like Limelight and Studio 54, her marathon sets were known for their emotional nature. As she puts it, “There have been times when I’ve done a night, a performance, and the only thing to do when I was done was cry.” She describes her gigs as cathartic experiences filtered through a savvy selection of records, carefully sequenced so that the music always has a narrative. It’s an approach she learned from listening to and DJing on the radio. (She cut her teeth on a number of stations before ever stepping into a booth at a nightclub.) We caught up with White last year, and found out about some of her most memorable nights behind the decks in New York.
