Check Out The Go Getta Mix Featured DJ! [The Go Getta Mix With ADRI.V]
Every month I featured a new DJ on The Go Getta Mix, and the month of August, the Featured DJ is DJ Queen Of Spades!
Check her out!
DJ Queen of Spades has always had a love affair with music. While growing up in Toronto, Canada she explored her inner creativity through dance and dramatic arts which gave birth to a lifelong affair with music. Her breakthrough moment came in 1996, when the spark to learn the craft of deejaying was ignited. A connoisseur of a wide variety of music, her passion lies deep in hip-hop, house and R’n’B. It was just a matter of time before she would emerge as The Queen of Spades.
DJ Queen of Spades diligently studied some of the most acclaimed in the business including DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Scratch (EPMD), Spinderella (Salt ‘n Pepa), Kid Capri, Funk Master Flex (Hot 97) and DJ Starting from Scratch to learn the intricacies of mixing records firstly on vinyl, and later moving to CDs and mixing software. Realizing quickly that female DJs were not as widely accepted as her male counterparts, Queen of Spades has had to prove herself to the club-goers and her peers that she is a force to be reckoned with. Her earliest gigs at the former Berlin Nightclub in Toronto grew into a string of bookings at numerous venues, a weekly residency, a featured DJ for the monthly Ladies Night live-to-air on The New Flow 93.5 (Toronto’s only Hip Hop & R’n’B FM radio station), the annual Toronto urban showcase for female artists; Honey Jam and now gigs in the most popular clubs, lounges and hotspots that span across Canada and The United States. With all of this under her belt, it’s no surprise that she has now been able to branch out and take her talents internationally.
DJ Queen of Spades has garnered repeated nominations for Female DJ of the Year at the Stylus DJ Awards since 2007 and was also honoured at “The Annual Tribute to a Lady” Gala in 2008, where dynamic women in the community are recognized for their creative contributions. She has produced a popular CD series appropriately called “All Hail the Queen” which showcases her strength as a deejay, and her diverse taste in music and has been a member of The Core DJs since July 2009, the World’s Largest Professional DJ Organization and also spins on their signature radio show on Sirius XM / Shade 45. In 2007, at the time a brand new internet radio station, Queen helped to shape and develop the growth as one of the Administrative Team of Globe Radio.com. A station with several sub-channels that catered to different genres of music. She was also Globe Radio’s ONLY female DJ with her mix show The Royal Treatment. Since then, Queen has since showcased her skills on a number of other mixshows including The Old School Cafe on Tulsa Oklahoma’s #1 Hip Hop & R’n’B station KJAMZ 105.3 and Sikmixxradio.com.
DJ Queen of Spades is an outgoing, friendly, down-to-earth woman who truly understands the art of deejaying having been immersed in the culture from all aspects; the listening ear, the dancer and now the party rocker. It is a privilege to get to know her as a person and a DJ, for when you walk beside her, you walk amongst royalty.
All Hail DJ Queen of Spades!
