I love music.

Below are 3 of my musical incarnations: for bookings


  • R.I.A
  • PLAY DJs


R.I.A; a fun-loving, genre jumping DJ whose infectious energy, musical knowledge and Dj pedigree unfailingly shines through in her sets.  An established working DJ, industry professional and radio announcer rising 12 years, she mixes an eclectic and diverse funk driven sound resonating within the realms of disco and broken beats and bass. Her natural ability to amplify or soften a mood as a DJ is charismatic.

She’s extensively travelled rocking bars and mini-festivals in Europe, America, Australia and Scandinavia including; Burning Man-Nevada, Winter Sessions Weekender-Chamonix and Basscamp Music Festival-Morzine, and was an active player in the DJ circuit in Sydney from 2001 – 2006.

Over winter 2012 she held down residencies at Mix Bar Chamonix, Y bar Chamonix, and Djed special events at Le Vert Hotel supporting the likes of Krafty Kuts, A-Skills, and Soul Of Man. She warmed up for deep house break-through producer Finnebassen at Skvmlos at Fugazi in Oslo Norway, and has also supported Fort Knox Five, Agent 86, Mark Walton, killer Queens, Skitz and Darrison, Yes King, Dj Cheeba and more.

Last year she launched new bass-rockin’ breaks duo; ‘PLAY DJS (R.I.A and Dj C:SHE)’ and performed a standout set at Rhythm and Alps in Wanaka 2013/14 and a mini tour around Queenstown and Wanaka.   Around the same time, on the opposite end of the spectrum, she launched downbeat project ‘YogaRhythms (R.I.A and SJ)’; a magical fusion of yoga, breath, dance, radical self expression and electronic music’. They performed Splore Festival and toured with Wanderlust OZ/NZ 2014 and played a number of shows/workshops around Auckland.

She likes to exercise her love of music, as well as health via her long-lasting affair with radio. She launched Future Movement Radio on in February 2014, pushing music with motion, soul, groove and funk, the occasional guest, and the ‘Feel Good Feature’ – tips and ideas around healthy living!’ (Listen to the replay on

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
Bob Marley

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.”

“I love the way it can stir emotions, create feelings and summon memories. I love how music can bring joy, movement and atmosphere to places and spaces. This is why I collect, play and share music. Whether it be in a big club environment, chilled bar scenario, or jamming on the radio. Without sharing, music cannot be heard and experienced in true sense of joy it deserves.”  – RIA
