Miss Radcliffe Meets......DJ DELUXE

Miss R: So, you're one of the top 'Urban' Dj's in Doncaster. Give me details on how the journey all started for you?

It all started not long after I turned 19. I'd always been into music from a very young age, I was basically brought up around it. But, at the age of 19 I decided to  buy my first pair of DJ decks (A Ministry of Sound starter kit) then every week I'd buy myself a piece of vinyl and started learning how to play.

Miss R: Who was your biggest inspiration?

I wouldn't really say I have a sole inspiration, as I have many lol! Listening to guys like Tim Westwood, Steve Sutherland, Trevor Nelson & Chris Goldfinger on the radio growing up, played a massive part for me wanting to do what I do today.

Miss R: What has been the most memorable night for you? As a DJ?

The most memorable night for me? Wow, There have been a couple to be honest. Firstly I would probably have to say my first real gig, which believe it or not was in Tryst nightclub in Doncaster (now known as Graffiti Bar). I went from playing in my tiny box bedroom to playing to a packed out club on a Bank Holiday.  It was daunting let's say lol.
The next most memorable occasions was being the warm up & down DJ for Tim Westwood & Trevor Nelson when they played in Doncaster.... Oh & meeting DJ Jazzy Jeff!

Miss R: How do you separate yourself from other DJ's? What makes you different?

I'm not really sure what makes me different to other DJs to be honest. I guess I could say I'm very humble when it comes to doing what I do! Some DJ's like to shout it from the roof top how great they are, where as I just keep my head down and get on with the job.

Miss R: You also have your own Radio show on SineFM 102.6
(Tues 3-6pm) playing RnB, Hip Hop, Reggae and Dancehall...Do you prefer being in the studio or playing in the clubs?

I can't say I prefer one to the other because I love doing both.  I experience different emotions and feelings. Being in the club and seeing the dance floor full of people, all having a good time, knowing you're creating that good happy vibe and  knowing you're entertaining people is such an awesome feeling. 
On the radio, you're not just playing to one room.. you're playing to the country & even the world! When I receive messages from people in different countries telling me they are listening to my show and they are liking what they're hearing.. that also is an awesome feeling.

Miss R:What are your Top 5 songs to play?

This is a tough question lol, There are so many songs I like to play and so many songs I can guarantee will get the crowd/dance floor hyped.
Montell Jordan-  'This is How We Do It'
Fatman Scoop-  'Be faithful'
Donell Jones -  'Say What'
Flo-Rida & T-Pain-  'Low' ....and that's just to name a few lol.

Miss R: Where do you see yourself one-two year's from now? What is your ultimate goal within the music industry?

Hmmm... To be honest I don't really set myself  goals, I literally just take each day, each month and each year as they come and see where it takes.  I don't set myself specific target's just to keep doing what I'm doing, although having said that, I would love to work on Radio 1xtra.

Miss R: What is the best thing about being a DJ?

The best thing about Ding is the fact I  that I get to share my love and passion for music & my passion for DJing with the rest of the world. Also, It's given me an opportunity  to meet new people. I've made a lot of new friends while DJing. It's the entertaining people that I love.

..Miss R: And the worst?

The worst thing?..I would probably have to say, the overly intoxicated customers lol. They ask some daft questions and want to look through my music collection for songs they like.
The hours can sometimes get to me. Being a DJ can be a very tiring job.

Miss R: What advice would you give to aspiring DJs?

The best advice I would give is just be yourself! Be unique and don't try to be like anybody else.
We will all have our own specific ways of doing thing's. We're in the same game but at the same time we're all very different. Also  be humble! Don't talk about how good you are. if you're good at what you do and you know it, leave it to the people to talk about.
I can't stress enough that being humble in this game is a must.

Miss R: What festivals and/or Venues would you most like to play at?

I would love the opportunity to play at one of the big carnivals.
Leeds or Notting Hill.
I've had the pleasure of going to the Leeds & Notting Hill carnival and it was a great experience, but I'd definitely love the chance to drop a set at either one.
The Leeds/Reading festivals would be great too.

Miss R: What events do you have coming up...Where are you playing next?

Wow! Where do I start lol. As it's now the run up to Christmas, I'm massively busy with bookings. I've also just started a new residency in Barnsley at the new club called Project.
I have a lot of gigs in Doncaster too..The Tiki Bar, The Courtyard, Manana Manana & Secrets nightclub.

Miss Radcliffe Meets......Mozaik

Miss R: Who are Mozaik? Introduce yourself.

Hello. We are mozaik, a soul/hiphop/jazz band based in Dresden, Germany. We are: Jonas Mielke (bass), Jannik Kerkhof (drums), Mikolaj Suchanek (keys), Georg Wiede (sax) and Anna-Lucia Rupp (vocals).

Miss R: How did you all meet?

We met during our first year at music school. We all study at ’Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber’ in Dresden. In the beginning of our studies there were some obligatory jazz ensembles where we were put together as a group and we got along pretty well. At that time I (Anna-Lucia) wanted to start a band which was a little more groovy, so I actually put together the people that were already around me. What a coincidence – they were all into groove music... And here we are, still playing and harmonizing together.

Miss R: What / Who inspires your music?

There’s this one band that we are very inspired by. They are called ’Hiatus Kaiyote’  from Australia. The have a very special and experimental sound and have a specific way of composing and arranging. Music is a great influence on the way we use it to compose and arrange songs. Also, there are musicians like Esperanza Spalding, José James, D’Angelo and many, many more who influence our music profoundly. But all in all, there are infinitely many inspirations for each of us.
We actually are quite different in our musical taste. Our pianist Mikolaj for example is a classical piano player. He studies classical piano and likes to listen to jazz and rock music. Our drummer Jannik, plays a lot of pop music and he is into hip hop as well. Each one of us comes from another direction but we harmonize pretty well together and we try to find a sound that everyone can identify with.

Miss R: Talk me through your process of creating a song.

Usually Jonas (bass) or myself, bring a groove or a rough structure of a song into the band context. We work on that together in the rehearsal. I record it and write melodies and lyrics at home. Then I bring it back into the band context and we work on the structure and all kinds of details until we are all satisfied with it. Sometimes it can take a while. For example, we are still working on one song which we first put together right at the start, which was in winter 2014. Some of our songs need a little more processing time, others are there immediately. It’s different from time to time.

Miss R: Who in the music world would you like to work with in the future?

There have been a few rappers from all over the world contacting us on soundcloud. They are totally into our music and asked if we can imagine featuring them in one of our songs or producing tracks together. These days it’s so easy working with people all around the world. We really want to do these kinds of collaborations in the future. Also, we have the opportunity to work with a guy called David Hanke aka Renegades of Jazz from Agogo Records. He makes raw and heavy produced music, fusing Jazz with Breakbeat elements, bringing the Jazz back to the dancefloor. He also got in touch with us via soundcloud listening to our songs.
Let’s see what the future brings...

Miss R: What are you working on now?

We are working on a bunch of new songs currently. It means a lot of rehearsing, arranging, composing, writing lyrics, finding new sounds and redefining old ones... Our long-term goal is definitely to record an album. So we are on our way!
In the meantime, Georg (sax), our social-media-guy, is working on expanding our online presence. He’s working very hard to bring our music to the people.
You could say that we are currently working on our basic fundament.

Miss R: Any gigs / tours planned?

There is a tour planned for February 2017. We’re planning on touring Switzerland and Southern Germany. So keep in touch for further information! Visit us on Facebook, soundcloud, instagram, twitter, etc. to check our tour dates!
The very next gig will be on the 27th of January 2017 at ’Zapfanstalt’ in Dresden. Come on over!

Miss R: Where can we get you music?

You can listen to our demo tracks on soundcloud. A better way of enjoying our music would probably be seeing us live! Or keep your eyes open for upcoming live videos. There’ll be a few sneak peeks on Facebook. Or you can of course get the EP as soon as it’s out!

Miss Radcliffe Meets......DOBBY

Big up this young, talented lady who is making moves on the airwaves and has even bigger plans for the future in order to share great music to the world...If you dont know her yet, then get to know....Superstar DJ on the rise...Dobby


Miss R: You're making moves on the airwaves with your show WitchezzBrew at @Reprezentradio (Tues 7-9pm) did it all start for you?

Thank you so much! For me, my radio journey started when I was just 14 years old. I knew I wanted to get into the music industry but I had no idea how or what it was exactly I wanted to do.
I got work experience at a local studio, which was used for music production and I was also on online community radio station Break London.
I remember on my first day, the station manager basically took me to the live studio and pretty much said "off you go" and I went home and said to my parents that I knew radio was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I then pretty much got a slot on Break London. From there (which served as my little radio boot camp) Myself and my cousin, Rebecca Judd used to lock ourselves in the Break London’s' studio and practise links in front of each other. From Break London, I managed to get an internship at Radio 1 & 1Xtra and moved to Reprezent, which has such an amazing family vibe. I’m very thankful for my journey thus far and excited to see what’s next in store for me!

Miss R: How did you come up with  Witchezz Brew?

Witchezz Brew came about 2 years ago, after feeling like I didn't have much of a brand and I really worked on cultivating what Witchezz Brew was and what makes it stand out

Miss R: Who/what has been your biggest inspiration?

There’s a couple of people who have been pretty massive inspirations for me. First and foremost, my dad is a huge inspiration to me. He was the first person to introduce me to music and DJing. He even took me to my first ever festival haha.
Some of my earliest memories are of me sitting on top of his record box and watching him DJ. Another significant inspiration of mine is my mentor, Jamz Supernova. I remember listening to her show, Future Bounce when she used to be on Reprezent when I was 16 and feeling like wow, there’s someone out there who plays all the stuff I’m into and seeing her journey to push the boundaries and make that music heard on national radio makes me believe that I, too, can do it!
I remember on the first day of my internship at Radio 1 and 1Xtra, I met her and she was just the loveliest. I’m so thankful to have someone like her as a mentor. I’ve really learned a lot from her, from the way to carry yourself, to looking after your social media, to new DJing techniques.

Miss R: As a DJ, What has been your most memorable night/event?

I think my most memorable night has to be opening up for the August edition of Future Bounce. I’m one of the regular warm up DJ’s for Future Bounce and on this line up we had Full Crate, Mar, Lee Millah and Midas Hutch, who are from the 'Rock The Boat collective' in Amsterdam. It was just such a fun night. The set I did really got the crowd nicely warmed up. The club reached capacity at 1AM and it was vibes galore.

Miss R: Do you prefer being in the studio or playing in the clubs?

This is gonna sound like a cop out but I promise it isn’t.  I actually love both for different reasons. I love being in the studio and doing my own show, because that’s something I’ve been building for the past two years and it’s my baby, essentially. I love introducing people to new, alternative music instead of what they’ve already being exposed to and inviting interesting artists to share their stories and provide a platform for their voices.
I love playing in the clubs because nothing beats the feeling of people vibing out to your set that you curated. I love looking up and just seeing people dancing and appreciating the music. It’s priceless.

Miss R: What other projects are you involved in?

I also work at Radio 1 & 1Xtra as Team Assistant, helping out on the production on all your favourite shows from; Trevor Nelson to Charlie Sloth to Huw Stephens. I also work quite closely with my best friend, Olivia Louise and her music. I think she is one of the UK’s top talents and I just believe in her so much that where-ever I can help, I will.

Miss R: What are your Top 5 songs to play?

At the moment, it’s looking like:

* Miraa May – Benji
* Solange – Cranes In The Sky (Kaytranada Remix)
* Migos – Bad n Bouji (Negium Edit)
* Ravyn Lenea – Sleep Talking
* BANKS – Gemini Feed (Swell Remix)

Miss R: Without giving too much away, Where do you see yourself in 1-2 years from now? What is your ultimate goal?

I think in 1-2 years time, I definitely see Witchezz Brew growing to a point where it’s so much more than just a radio show. I want to publish a book, I want to have a compilation CD/EP, I want to be throwing a yearly party called the Witchezz Brew Ball with all proceeds going to charity. For me, Witchezz Brew is not just a cool name; it’s an actual lifestyle, dedicated to making all aspects of your life magical in whatever way you can and to carry and convey magical vibes to the world despite all the negativity that gets thrown at you and that is the ultimate goal for me.

Miss R: What festivals and/or Venues would you most like to play at?

I’d love to play Glastonbury and Bestival one day. They just seem like these other-worldly events let alone a festival. I feel like I’d be right at home at either of those festivals. In terms of clubs... I’d love to play Fabric, Koko, Warehouse Project in Manchester and Motion in Bristol. I’d also love to travel to different countries to DJ. At the minute, Berlin and Amsterdam are on my list so, hopefully within the next year I’ll make that a reality to play in both those cities.

Miss R: What advice would you give to aspiring DJs?

I have two pieces of advice:
1. Patience is the ultimate key in the music industry, especially as you’re starting out. I remember being so eager and just wanting to jump into things when I was younger when I really wasn’t ready.
Take your time, work as hard as possible and your time will come.

2. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. Focus on yourself and you’re already on to a winner. I found coming up, that worrying about what the next person was quite detrimental to my own progress. I remember reading somewhere “Don’t compare your chapter 1 to someone else’s chapter 22” which is what I live by. I’m at where I’m at, and doing what I know I can do to my authentic best. That’s all that matters to me.

Miss R: What's the best way for upcoming artist to get their music to you? 

The best way an upcoming artist can get their music to me is by submitting to my submissions email which is:
I always look in there for what’s new and I have supported the likes of Shadez The Misfit, Ella Frank, S E G and more all through that submissions email!

AMAZING! Thank you Dobby.
