Understatement alert: Arielle Free had a fierce summer.
After bumping into each other in Eden’s green room a few weeks earlier, we caught up at the much slower paced Las Mimosas Boutique Hotel & Spa. The DJ and radio personality was staying there, presumably on the assumption that she’d be relaxing and taking things easy ahead of her set… nah, we couldn’t picture it either.
Appearing almost weekly at David Guetta’s Future Rave during the summer, Arielle is known for being a feisty livewire behind the decks. Watching her animated performance is enough to exhaust you, let alone dancing to it.
Thankfully, Arielle likes to chat, as regular listeners to her Radio 1 early morning breakfast show will be all too familiar with. Interviewees can sometimes clam up and make you work hard to get answers, but there was no danger of Arielle being a closed book.
