Kat Lane

Posted: Updated:

South Florida music fans listen up, Miami's homegirl Kat Lane likes to have it both ways, she's a singer and a DJ. She gets to show her stuff Saturday Night at Hard Rock Live where she's opening for Steve Aoki. Deco got to hang out with Kat to talk, singing and spinning.

When Miami native Kat Lane isn't singing dance-pop anthems to the 305, she's rocking the beats behind the wheels of steel. She'll be doing just that this weekend at Hard Rock Live.

KAT LANE: "I'm gonna be performing with Steve Aoki. It's going to be an amazing show."

Steve brings the party with him whenever he spins. Kat's up for the chance to do the same.

KAT LANE: "I think that he really knows how to bring his crowd in and show them just like a really great show, so I look forward to bring my own aspect and element of that as well."

Lane knows the DJ field is dominated by guys and that's cool with her.

KAT LANE: "I mean everyone's gonna have a different edge because of what they bring to the table, and as a woman, as a dancer, as a vocalist, I think those are things I kinda make into a package of my own."

Style-wise, there's not a big difference between the songs she sings, and the songs she spins but the surprises keep coming.

KAT LANE: "Because I'm very dance/pop but I still do house and I do open format too so you never really know what's gonna come next."

Her experience as a singer definitely influences the grooves she lays down in club land.

KAT LANE: "Instead of just listening to instrumentals and the build-ups of the beat, I can actually look at there's build-ups to the vocals too, you know and emotion and different things that I think I extract then bring another song based on that angle."

Kat's always gotten support from her SoFlo fans, and she's ready to give that love right back.

KAT LANE: "They're the ones who kinda created what's possible so to be able to perform for them here is kinda unlike anything else."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
