In an interview with NME, Mercedes spoke about her creative journey and what inspired her to begin her own music platform Future SNDS. It read:

Mercedes describes herself as a “renaissance girl”, and is living proof that it’s possible to get stuck into a variety of creative endeavours, if you have the passion. She started her quarterly showcase of new talent, Future SNDS at London’s XOYO, as a result of her own frustration with the live scene.

“I was tired of reading blogs about my favourite up-and-coming artists,” she says. “I wanted to see them on stage, so I said f**k it, let’s do it. Anything you believe in and put your mind to will work.”

Next, Mercedes plans to create a platform that fuses music and charity. “I want to give back,” she adds.

Mercedes appears to be a master of all trades ash she conquers the business, fashion and music scene in one swoop. Take a look at why Mercedes is one of our favourites and most stylish DJs on Instagram.
