My DJ Philosophy

To play the finest of 60s female pop, soul, R&B, freakbeat, garage + rock n’ roll, whilst occasionally veering off into ’80s chart-hits, Japanese pop, Lou Christie, exotica, lounge, easy listening, Frank Sinatra, anything off Hall & Oates’ H2O album, bubblegum pop, heavy metal, My Bloody Valentine, the Bee Gees, and anything else that takes my fancy. In short, ’60s girl-pop is my bread, and everything else is my butter. Or is it the other way around?

I aim to play records that people will enjoy, not just to show off my record collection : )

*the DJ party to top all DJ parties!!
**at age 19, I was a heavy metal DJ at this much-missed dive bar on St. Mark’s Place. My claim to heavy metal fame is that I opened for Testament and made the Lemonheads’ Evan Dando dance to Kiss’ “Detroit Rock City.”

I’ve also hosted numerous parties in London + NYC, including A Night of J-pop, Le One Night Stand, and Cherrybomb. And I currently host Sh-Boom, a night of vintage vinyl + erotica every 3rd Friday at Our Wicked Lady in Brooklyn.
