Right then everybody, just because it’s October don’t you worry about falling autumn leaves or digging out last year’s winter jumpers. Why? Because you’re just about to have your temperatures raised up several notches by this month’s super sexy, super fierce and super talented super-bloody-star dj that’s why!!! Gather round you lot, and listen up as I, Queen Josephine has a chat with the very wonderful Dj Lady Lola.
Where can we see/hear you playing? Mainly in London and Brighton at the moment. You can catch me at Chica Bonita at Candy Bar and Code at the Green Carnation in Soho. Also for One Love at various London venues, and I run my own hip hop night called Hot Mess.
Please describe your djing style. It’s big, bold, bouncy and totally in your face – if you’re dancing, I’m dancing with ya!!!! My sets have often been referred to as the ‘Lola Show’…..come and check me out and see for yourself!
What’s your favourite song of all time? Liberian Girl by Michael Jackson
Which tune always fills up/rescues your dancefloor? Anything with a fabulous old skool sample that everyone will know but that still has my signature big bouncy basslines! Maybe something like Ready Or Not by Corrupt – the Billy Kenny remix.
What would be your ultimate dream gig (no holds barred!!!)? Well, I djed at Amsterdam Pride earlier this year which was amazing – so another international Pride gig would be AWESOME. Perhaps a bit further afield like New York or Australia…..:)
Name a tune you wish you’d never played and why! I once played Last Friday Night by Katy Perry because it fitted into the night I was playing at – but it’s definitely not my kind of thing!!! Now when I DJ I have to be true to myself and only play music that I think is credible, current and fresh.
What’s your guilty pleasure? I Love It by Icona Pop. Such a cheeky catchy little tune that always gets my booty shaking.
What has been your best ever gig? My ambition last year was to play in the Girls Dance Tent at Brighton Pride and this year I achieved it! I played alongside my talented girlfriend who is also a DJ – and it was sooooo nice to see so many of our friends gorgeous faces in the crowd, dancing their arses off to all our tunes!!
Tell us a secret! A Lady NEVER tells…….
