As the host of Rinse FM’s Drive Time show, her essential selections in the field of “beats, bass and bounce from across the club spectrum” make London afternoons and commutes a brighter place.
She’s also a regular on the club and festival circuit with gigs at the likes of fabric and Glastonbury under her belt. In control of a party she spins homegrown styles like UK funky and garage alongside international flavours from Brazil and Portugal, and dancehall. Her ability to blend party-starting styles also landed her the role of tour DJ for rap star M.I.A.
