Don?t let her model looks fool you; Rebekah is serious about the music she plays.
Known for her blend of acid electro tech house and inclination towards a decent jackin? house set too, Rebekah first started mixing 9 years ago when she was 17 and still in college in Birmingham. Not knowing what she wanted to do, she started going out clubbing and was inspired by the sets of Scott Bond, Dave Clarke, Derrick Carter, Richie Hawtin and Billy Nasty. Fast forward a few years and she has toured all the corners of the globe including South Africa, Australia, Central America, Brazil, Italy, Russia, Dubai, Hong Kong and Thailand. That is not forgetting all-important sets at Space and El Divino in Ibiza.
With a growing reputation, she now plays several gigs every weekend in the UK for brands like Ministry of Sound, Godskitchen and Miss Moneypenny?s. When asked what her main influences are, Rebekah says, ?French and Chicago house, with a touch of funk, I like to keep it rolling. I?ve got my own loopy sort of percussive sound and I don?t really play all the big tunes, I?m not a big cheesy DJ. I don?t mind slipping a few anthems in ? if I really like them ? but it?s not what I started DJing for. To play one big tune after another, you can get any old DJ from down the road for £50 to do that. I try to give something a little bit extra and a little bit different, bringing in new sounds and really just experimenting a little bit.?

At only 24 years old, he already has an album ??TrickaTechnology? wih Krafty Kuts under his belt. The album had a sense of De La Soul, James Brown and Jurassic 5 about it.
