We’re starting off cool and mellow for our next trip to the turntable, from veteran DJ Lucky Cat
Lucky Cat collects a wide range of genres– all on vinyl– but true to her South London roots Reggae is her first love! In 2019 she competed in 2 Reggae DJ clashes Tradition’s Old Hits Clash and the Lover’s Rock and Revival Clash. As a solo DJ she has played in Switzerland, Ireland and Germany and specialises in late 60s/early 70s styles of Reggae.
Collecting records since age 12, Lucky Cat started DJing at parties in 2000, then progressed to hosting her own club nights in South London. In 2005 she debuted on Resonance FM and has since made almost 20 series of her show. A passionate broadcaster, she also contributed mixes to the BBCs cult programme On the Wire.
In 2016 she founded an all-female Reggae DJ collective – Sisters of Reggae. The collective of 5 DJs and 1 MC gig all over the world and encourage other women to get behind the decks with their popular Female DJ Relay Nights.
