We met at a Rock n Bowl event on the West side. She was DJing for the annual TJ Martell Charity party. I loved her relaxed style and was such a fun person to talk with. Since we had a report, I suggested that she come by Popdust and spin a set for us on Popdust Presents. That is just what she did. Nicole had a very nice interview with Brent Butler. They spoke about some considerations you must take into account, if your are a world class DJ that is. The dress, the tunes and that enormous bottle of rosé set the stage for some dance grooves that were just right to chill with. The following was broadcast live to our Popdust Facebook page. We streamed the interview first and then a special hour-long set (music starts at 21 minutes) with DJ Rosé.
Just so you know, we finished that whole bottle. It was not necessary, but we did it anyway. Brent and I had so much fun with Nicole. She knows how to keep a party going. Popdust was so lucky to have her as our first guest on the new DJ segment of Popdust Presents "Swift Digits." It means fast hands. It's important to appreciate all that running the decks isn't just making a playlist. There is an art to the selection, but the craft is in the transitions. When the record changes, that's the time to listen.
Nicole Rosé, also known as Nicole Rose Stillings, is an entrepreneur, music director and in-demand DJ. She has been on the global dance scene for over 7 years. Rosé focuses her time solely on the positive. She's into creating good vibes, that is embodied by the music she shares.
Her style can be described as soulful and energetic, so it has been dubbed "glam house." She massages the crowd with her solid grasp of dance, disco and modern day hits. The daughter of two brain doctors, Rosé takes her happiness to the next level– recently working with Fast Company, Cornell University and the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment to build mixes and playlists that make people thrive and feel alive.
DJ Rosé's signature sound can be heard regularly for Saks Fifth Avenue, Samsung, W Hotels, Whispering Angel, and Gilt Groupe. Recently she's played Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed Awards, Sephora Meatpacking's Grand Re-Opening, Lucky Brand's Lounge at Coachella, the Scope Show at Art Basel, just to name a few.

In 2017, Rosé was named Music Director for Gilt Groupe nationally, traveling with their team to bring upbeat music with an artsy flavor to millennials and lovers of dance music all over the world. Rapidly expanding in all directions, she was also recently seen on BRAVO's Summer House DJing the cast's epic rosé-fueled finale party.
Now, you too can hear the world through rosé colored lenses!
