    Tuesday 18:00 - 20:00

 

A gift to be cherished - I received my first vinyl record player at the budding age of 9. Influenced by my parent’s musical tastes including, Disco, Funk, Soul, and Old School Hip Hop, as a little Parisian music addict child I would find myself in record shops on a weekly basis, “Digging In the Crates” for latest Old School Hip Hop tunes. One of the 1st I bought that stands out is "Street dance" by Break Machine

Soon enough, young aspiring I would be engulfed by the new wave of Electronic Dance Music that swept through France electrifying every dance floor in its wake. Notable House bangers like “I Can’t Get No Sleep” by Masters At Work inspired and fed my passionate hunger for searching out new cutting edge releases.

My eclectic spectrum of musical influences would become the foundation for my DJ sets which rock the air waves and dance floors today, including London’s Ministry of Sound, Egg, Horse & Groom, MQueen and last summer at Ibiza Sunrise. Sought after, I also throw down DJ sets for corporates at exclusive private parties.

I became friend with the amazingly talented Ultra Naté a few years ago and looking at what she built with her party Deep Sugar I got very inspired by her, no wonder!.... only 18 months ago I decided to start my new exciting DJ journey, very promptly I got booked at Egg various times which built up my confidence a lot to think that after only 2 months of learning I was playing in a great big room club like Egg in London, it was quite magical.

I randomly ended up on the same flight as Black coffee in Ibiza a few months after that, I sang Superman to him on the escalator and told him how much I love him & his music and that I was a young DJ he then said woaw thank you, I can't wait to play with you! ah ah...you can imagine how that made me feel...I was like give me my decks I've got to practice...!!!

Other accolades of my career include Space Ibiza as Tour Manager & Booking Agent, promoting Space on tour parties in Europe and procuring bookings for resident DJ’s. PR for Buddha bar Barcelona & London and global business consultant for corporates. I'm thrilled to have joined the HouseFM family since November 2018 where I now have my Live radio show "La Crème"every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:00pm. This is a very exciting new adventure, pure bliss! www.houseFM.net

“It’s all about House music, mood and a deep, hypnotic groove….the beat synchronises with my heart, I love playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head and dancing, regardless of tempo, style, or release date and looking at people feeling deep emotions while dancing on my music“
