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."

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    Good things come in small packages, especially when it comes to innovative Spanish cuisine in Miami. Deco got a table at NIU (new) and got a big taste of Barcelona.
