Read interview with female DJ MISSREPRESENT
Set to play the Fort Jester festival at the Party in the Pines venue this June, Drum and Bass / Breakbeat DJ Missrepresent is no stranger to getting dancefloors bouncing across the globe.
For 3 consecutive years, Missrepresent was nominated and came in the results of top third and second ‘Best female DJ’ at the national Drum and Bass awards alongside Annie Mac (Radio 1) and the legendary DJ Storm (Metalheadz). If you’ve caught one of her sets either live or online, you will know why!!! Along with DJ’ing across the globe from Europe to Eastern Bloc to North America and the Far East to critical acclaim, the journey began in 2004 when Missrepresent beat over 500 entries to win the liquidfunk.co.uk DJ mix competition. In the same year she qualified in the finals of Bristol Academy’s ‘Movement & Driveby’ competition which led to the beginnings of a global career in DJ’ing at venues such as The Wagon Club (Poland), Club Cube (Lodz Poland), Porto Play DnB (Portugal) and Lisbon (Portugal) with numerous gigs in Germany.
Scunthorpe Nights caught up with Missrepresent for a quick Q&A ahead of her North Lincolnshire gig.
Which DnB track started it all off for you?
When I was raving as a kid, it was always hardcore raving at the sanctuary (RIP) but I switched after listening to Nicky Blackmarket in Bristol.
The track that sticks out the most that I loved was Jo R Type – Awesome Records. Got to shout out to Slipmat on that one, what an amazing tune.
How did you get in to spinning the tunes?
I went to a lot of free parties and house parties, and the boys never let me play on their decks. It kinda fascinated me.
I was working as a store manager for Domino’s Pizza at the time and my franchisee Hash Chawda bought me a set of decks and a mixer.
I promised to pay him the £400 at the time back, I never did! We are good though, he is like a Step-Dad to me, he is coming to my wedding in August and I visit him still in Stroud.
Which DnB DJs are your biggest inspiration?
Mixing Andy C. Selection Nicky Blackmarket. Legendary status, Roni Size, Fabio, Grooverider and Mampi Swift. Phantasy inspires me because he works so hard with promotions.
Aries and DJ SS just inspire me on the whole jungle tip, they know their jungle. Jaguar Skillz because I hit him up querying the whole digital mixing, and he actually took the time to talk and I saw a completely different point of view.
Serial Killaz for production skills, DJ Sly for breaking through and staying there. DJ Dazee and Rap for just being awesome ambassadors for women in our scene.
Simon Bassline Smith and Tony Modified Motion for smashing it time and time again. Lion Dub, Filthy Habits. Seriously I could be here all day. I am deeply inspired n a daily basis by the amazing people we have in our music scene.
Where does the name come from?
I always loved Roni Size and Reprazent. I actually stumbled up to him a bit worse for wear 15 years ago at Bristol Academy and asked him if it was ok to use the name. He was cool and now sends me music, so totally stoked.
I looked in the dictionary for Mis names, Misguided, Misunderstood etc but Miss Represent had a bit more of an urban feel to it.
Out of all your music, which tune never fails to get the room bouncing?
Vinyl or CDJs?
My house is a shrine for vinyl so vinyl, but I mainly use CDJs now.
What famous venues have you played at?
Cross Club Prague, Brunel Rooms Swindon, Scala London, Sub Club, Bratslavia – Slovakia, Tramps Worcester, oh wow I’ve been blessed to play at hundred of famous clubs check this out : http://www.missrepresent.com/missrepresent-bookings
What is your dream venue?
Amnesia Ibiza or Pirate Station Moscow.
What do you do when not DJing?
I run my label Sliced Note Recordings and I love making music. I also love making digital artwork now.
I love my garden, and watching movies, eating out and meditating.
If you had a time machine, what year would you go back to, and why?
That is an interesting question, and I don’t think I would want to time travel backwards. My life has only improved as I have got older.
I wouldn’t want to be stuck back in time as we have so much great technology now and efficient cars, efficient heating and amazing advances in the world.
But, if I really had to… I’d probably go back to 1995 and try a little harder in my GCSE’s.
Any advice for any budding DnB DJs?
Just enjoy the music, and don’t expect too much. This was a hobby that turned professional for me, and every time I get paid to play music I love, I treat it as a blessing.
Be grateful, and don’t forget your roots and the people who have helped you get where you are.
Any shout outs?
My very supporting Fiance.
Bristol Sounds, Eat Your Greens, Universal Drumz, Party In The Pines, The Explosive Bass Crew in Birmingham and all the people supporting me and my label. You know who you are!
We look forward to seeing Missrepresent on the Fortress Stage at the Fort Jester festival this June. Thickets are available on the Party in the Pines main website here.
Party In The Pines organisers are expecting this festival to be their biggest yet with a sell out once the Platinum selling headline is announced for the main stage on the evening of Thursday 12th Feb.
Already ticket sales for the August live music festival “Party In The Pines” have been sailing in through the newly launched website www.partyinthepines.co.uk without even a full line up or headline announced.
So far if you have been following the Facebook page, you will have seen the two announcements this week of the Fortress stage headline and the acoustic tent headline.
The August festival will see over 30 acts across 4 different platforms, which will include the Main stage, Fortress stage, Acoustic tent and a dance tent. There is bound to be something for everyone to enjoy and for early bird tickets at only £15, it’s not to be missed!!
Over 50% Of the early bird tickets have now been sold for the August festival. Once early bird is sold out the regular ticket price will be £25.
The Party In The Pines atmosphere is like no other live music event in the area. Surrounded by trees in a private woodland clearing with stages set into the beautiful surroundings. Whether you just want to sit and soak up the sun with a cold beer and some friends whilst taking in some live music or if you want to party hard when the sun goes down. Party In The Pines is the place to be this summer locally.
Camping & Parking is FREE (no hidden costs) just buy your ticket and that’s that. You can bring your own alcohol (No Glass) or purchase from the on site licensed bar.
Please ensure when booking via the Party In The Pines Website you book the festival you want. There are two different events.
JUNE- FORT JESTER FESTIVAL – DJ ONLY EVENT
AUGUST- PARTY IN THE PINES FESTIVAL – LIVE MUSIC
This Saturday the biggest local event kicks off between Broughton & Appleby.
How Much is it and where can I get a ticket ? £20 & tickets are still available from Celebrate Partyshop Robert Street.
When can I camp from? Saturday to Sunday
I haven’t received my online ticket purchase yet? Don’t worry if you ordered before last Friday your tickets should have been dispatched and be with you by the end of this week.
Why can’t I bring glass bottles? One they are more dangerous, health and safety and also harder to get rid of. Where as cans are much easier to recycle and plastic bottles.
What time does it start and end? 12pm to 12am
Why does it finish at 12am this year? Due to noise restrictions which effect local villages.
Why can’t I bring a caravan? Space is the answer to this, if there were too many caravans the site would fill quickly & there are no hook ups. Camper vans are permitted.
Can we have a BBQ or Fire? Due to fire risks these will not be permitted. Food vans will be on site for your catering needs or feel free to bring a picnic.
The event is open to over 18’s only due to licensing.
Can I pay on the gate on the day? This option will not be available.
Party In The Pines is situated in a private woodland clearing. Whilst driving past Broughton onto Appleby you will see the sign posted entrance to enter the parking & camping site. Once you have parked and pitched you can make your way to the fair situated near the entrance to the Pine arena.
As you walk through the woodland area you will then come to the clearing the Rave cave will be situated here and across the other side of the clearing is the stage and main DJ stage.
Stay safe, Have fun & be nice!!!
See you in the trees
