Very few electronic music artists open up to their followers on social media the way Alison Wonderland does. Candid and unapologetic about her insecurities and anxieties, she empowers her fans to trust their instincts and embrace their flaws. In turn, Alison–whose given name is Alex Sholler—is nourished by their stark realness. It’s a symbiotic relationship that’s helped make her one of the most endearing—and successful—producers and performers in dance music today.

With her second full-length artist album due this spring, we sit down with Sholler to discuss how the project came together, the memories of her first experience playing EDC Las Vegas, and the unique way she approaches social media.
