You're never too old to love a good bass drop. Just some inspo for our future selves. 

This 80-year-old grandma, Wirginia Szymt aka DJ Wika, mixes tunes at a huge club in Warsaw, Poland every week. 

"I don’t care if someone likes it or not that I am dancing or jumping behind the console, because I cannot play and stay still. When I play, I feel the melody, I feel the rhythm," she says.

The self-trained DJ has been playing for Polish retirees for two decades, entertaining about 1,000 people at the Hula Kula club every Monday. She plays everything from disco and rock to samba and ballads.

"I do not fit the stereotype of an elderly person. I don’t see a reason why my age should determine my life norms. I used to work with young people and I kept this youthful outlook and youthful expectations ... My message to youths is that your life does not end when you are 70. They would say ‘Miss Wika we are already 40, we are so old’. And I am twice as old as you and ... I am not old, by no means," DJ Wika says. 

Just goes to show, once a basshead, always a basshead. Check her out in action above.
