Partying With Brazzabelle at Disneyland
On stage Brazzabelle is a fashion forward temptress with a sexy gaze, smile that can light up a room and a distinct perfectly placed long ponytail. But today she's almost unrecognizable as she comes off of Space Mountain at Disneyland. The Arizona native and now LA transplant is an annual pass-holder, so we figured we swap a normal interview about her up and coming DJ gig in the OC for a day at the happiest place on Earth. Because, why the hell not? She dons a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt with a red plaid skirt, black mouse ears beanie and Main Street Elite patches on her spiked jean vest. Anywhere else the outfit might be a bit much, but at Disneyland she fits right in. Her style is usually pretty eccentric, the kind of loud clothes easily suited for massive stages at festivals like EDC Puerto Rico or New York's Electric Zoo, where she's been known to DJ hard-hitting, electro inspired sets.
Brittney Bowles Daisy and Brazzy Selfie
We make our way towards Main Street so that we can take pictures in front of the giant Christmas tree and hopefully spot a character to take a photo with. Afterwards we head over to Disney California Adventure because we're in desperate need of a cocktail. Yes it's okay to drink at Disneyland at 2pm, if you're with an EDM goddess and it's her birthday. As we wait in line at Cove Bar in DCA to have celebratory birthday drinks Brazzabelle spots Daisy Duck and begs for a picture. After posting her selfie on Instagram, fans instantly comment, "We're on a mission to find you!" But considering her signature look, would they be able to spot her behind those funky shades and Disney kid grin? "When I first started DJing I was told I needed to have branding with a name that's original and a distinct look," says the artist born Brittney Bowles. "The long ponytail weave was cool because when I didn't want to be recognized I could wear my hair down, but that doesn't really work anymore."
Her OC promoter friend Kevin from Trilogy who accompanied us on our Disney date says, "that's because you're just so popular now." That seems to be the case as of late. After being the opening support for various artist such as Alesso, Laidback Luke, and Martin Solveig she's now headlining her own monthly local shows like the new Wonder Saturdays at the Yost Theater this weekend. She's also playing at LED's OMFG NYE festival in San Diego on the 30th and the LA Shrine on the 31st alongside artist like Boys Noize, Diplo and NERVO. "All of my LED, Yost, and Avalon shows are amazing," says Bowles. "I have the best fans here. They always come out and rage!" Her fans are so enthralled with her, they even beg for her hand in marriage via twitter or Facebook on the daily -- Not like she replies, "but it's cute to see," she says. We stay at Cove bar for a while admiring the view of Paradise pier and Mickey's Fun Wheel as we drink and eat like the quasi-mature adults that we are.
