It’s a Showcase of Epic Proportions

19 Mar


Not so long ago i visited Morzine to see my most excellent Dj girlfirend ‘C:SHE’ and shred at Morzine-Avoriaz.

I was also invited to spin some tunes at The Basscamp Music Festival Apres event at the base of the Pleney Bubble lift. I didn’t really know what to expect, but was literally blown away, not only by the resort and it’s facilities, but by the energy and personality of the crew behind the Basscamp movement. Literally 200 ravers rocked out in their ski gear as the sun went down to cutting-edge breaks, ragga DnB and booty-electro.

I had to mentally psyke myself to step-up to the 1’s and 2’s as the crowd bobbed with intrigue and I took control of the decks. It was one of the biggest crowds i’d played to in ages and it was a buzz to take them on a journey through disco, booty house and breaks. Seriously good times!

I then took it on as my duty to share the love and invite DJ C:She to spin up a storm in Chamonix.

Party people it’s time to experience a small taste of what the Basscamp Music festival rocking Morzine 2-6th of April is all about!

Basscamp Music Festival boasts some of the best international DJs in the business and is sure to fill your ears with mystical music from sundown to sunrise on the alpine stage set in the heart of the beautiful mountains of the Portes Du Soleil. It’s a 5 day music festival based in Morzine, France boasting big banging bass music!!!


Come Down to the Event and you could win A 5 Day VIP Double Pass to the event + super cool hoodies and tee’s!  Mix Bar are making 10 liters of punch. Buy this and go into the draw to WIN!!!

Introducing DJ C:SHE!- A Big Bass rockin’ female DJ who pulls out all the stops to make a fun booty rockin atmosphere in the club!  Expect Dirty Booty Bouncin Electro, Ghetto Breaks and DnB. DJ support from R.I.A


DJ C:She first burst onto the Dance scene in Manchester in 2000 after a heated debate at a late night party over why most DJs had to be male.

500 quid well spent later on a dusty old pair of Technics, a barely working mixer and an hour’s lesson off a DJ pal, and DJ C:She was born and ready to prove to the world just what a determined chick with a passion for dirty baselines and pumping beats can do.

With a strong background in music already she was instantly hooked, and after scoring her first gig after less than a week she was soon in hot demand. Her signature sound of Booty Bouncin’ Electro Ghetto Funk was soon born…think of a meaty but fun blend of baseline heavy Breaks and Electro, grooving vocals and Drum & Bass.

DJ C:She quickly got heavily involved in Manchester’s nightclub scene playing all over the city at bars and clubs, and also through promoting her own hugely successful club nights such as ‘The Beatworx’ at the huge 3 story nightclub ‘Industry’. She was also involved with the award winning club nights ‘Tangled’ and ‘Fuse’. Together, these nights saw her playing alongside some of the decades Breaks and Drum & Bass’ elite such as The Freestylers, Freq Nasty, Andy C and DJ Hype. The journey soon grew to playing at a handful of festivals and then over to Europe rocking dance floors all over Germany, France and Switzerland.

Currently based in New Zealand, C:She is still flying the flag for UK Breaks, Electro and Drum & Bass, and has been playing in both Australia and New Zealand. Set to return for a stint in Europe from December 2011, DJ C:She is back to rock the house…time to get down and dirty to some good old block rockin’ beats. See you on the dancefloor!

For Girls That Shred : Chamonix Girls Zone

18 Mar

Chamonix Girls Zone – 20th & 21th of March 2012
Girls unite. The Chamonix Girls Zone is here and will be taking over Chamonix on the 20th and 21st of March this month!

It´s a free to participate is designed for chicks that love to shred, no matter what the level.  It’s a day leave the boys behind and to embrace a snow-fueled female fiesta!!

It’s a chance to meet cool, new girls, learn from each others riding and maybe throw down a few new tricks! But, most of all it’s about having an awesome day under the spring sun in the snow-slush with like minded ladies.

The idea was conceived last year in conjunction with International Women´s Day. Elena Lopez and her bestie wanted to seek out more girls (like them) that immerse themselves in the winter paradise, that is Chamonix. The response to a ‘Girls Only’ event was overwhelming, and as a result turned into a raging success.  Post event is was glaringly crystal-clear the girls of Chamonix had been waiting way too long for the chance to hit the mountains together!

This year promises to be bigger and better with more action, more prizes, more girls, and more fun! Elena has been working hard to secure some excellent partners and a great programme. She assures us that it’s going to be an event not to be missed! (if you’re a girl!!)

Nikita Onsie!

DJing with Krafty Kuts – Someone Pinch Me

7 Mar

First A-Skills, now Krafty Kuts. I am a lucky girl.

Coming from way down-under I would have only dreamed of DJing on the same line up as these funky-break icons. It was an opportunity that seemed a world away.  Now,  living here in Europe I realise that by immersing  myself in what I love to do, the opportunities are open to me. I am in the playground of people with like minds, and everyday i’m inspired by the people I meet.

Over the winter in Chamonix I have been working alongside Le Vert Hotel in conjunction with my involvement with The Daily Dump Snow Report.  Le Vert Hotel is an establishment born just over 6 years ago and run by a crew of cool-cats who love the active-mountain lifestyle as much as the love to share it with their guests.  If you like your accommodation hip, funky and laid-back, then it’s the place to stay when you visit Chamonix. especially if you want something that feels like a home away from home.

Tomorrow it’s Le Vert’s 6th Birthday and they’re pulling out the party poppers to throw down a soiree that is sure to tear the roof off with none other than the multi-award winning DJ Krafty Kuts.

He will be joined by the awesome Soul of Man, (Finger Lickin’ Records) and my good mate and local funk-loving tune slinger G-Funk, and ME – R.I.A

Krafty Kuts is a true international superstar, headlining clubs and festivals to sell out shows. Returning to Chamonix after a decade he’ll be rocking Le Vert’s intimate space to a small capacity of only 200 lucky people. He’s the master of the mash ups and the king of the grooves so we’re expecting to hear him slamm the funk, hip hop, breaks and drum & bass all with that non stop ‘Instant Party’ vibe….
