With a soulful yet rude girl style and refined selection, even though she’s pushing the freshest dubs and releases from the scenes new wave of contemporary artists and labels, her taste is infused with a revered nod to the original sound and vibe of the genre.
And she knows her history – a keen record collector, she will draw from the archives when the moment is right.
