Meet Lupa J

Lupa J - electronic music producer, songwriter and all round child prodigy. Oh, and did we mention the next person to grace the MCTV stage? We asked Lupa a few questions before their Central Session goes live...

Star sign…
Aquarius 
 
3 Emojis that describe you…
πŸ’ƒπŸ˜ˆπŸ‘½ 

You can pick one superpower - what is it and why?
Flying because who doesn’t wanna fly?
 
What inspired you to get into music?
I started learning violin when I was 6 & went to a music high school so have always been very focused on music. But it was being exposed to Grimes & Kishi Bashi when I was 15 that made me realise I could use violin with electronics to record my own songs.
 
Fave gig you’ve ever been to?
FKA Twigs first Sydney show at the Metro Theatre when I was 16! 

First CD you ever bought?
I think it would have been an Operator Please album when I was 8 or 9! I was obsessed with the Ping Pong song.
 
You can collaborate with any artist from around the world, past or present. Who is it?
Arca would be a dream right now!
 
If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing right now?
I did two years of arts and gender studies at uni and really liked it but wanted to focus on music - so I’d probably go back to that  

What’s your go-to Karaoke song?
Into You by Ariana Grande
