Now that Pride has finished, don’t think it’s time to hang up your dancing shoes for another year. Not when the gorgeous Missy B is still behind the decks waiting to get your arses shaking anyway! This month Queenie caught up with the busy lady to find out where you can find her, what brings out the best in her and why there’s nothing wrong with a bit of Mr Sinatra….
How would you describe your DJing style? Anything with a dirty bass-line, Old Skool Hip Hop and a good vocal house tune, then I’ll mash it all up to get the dancefloor pumping!
What’s your favourite tune of all time? That’s got to be Double 99 Rip Groove. Reminds me of my good old vinyl garage days!!!
Which tune always fills up (or rescues) your dancefloor? Good Feeling by Flo Rider!
What would be your ultimate dream gig? I’d love to play alongside some of the big names at Global Gathering.
Name a tune you wish you’d never played and why! At the time I thought it’d be a great idea to play a bit of Whitney Houston I Wanna Dance With Somebody. About thirty seconds into the song a young lad came running up to the DJ booth sobbing his heart out trying to tell me he’d been to his grandmother’s funeral earlier in the day and that this was her song…..I felt SO bad (gulp).
Guilty pleasure? I LOVE Frank Sinatra – I’ve Got You Under My Skin etc – and anything Rat Pack or big band. Hee hee…….sad but true!
What’s been your best ever gig? Just recently I had the amazing opportunity to play a set in the Women’s Dance Tent at Brighton Pride. I had such an incredible time and the atmosphere was electric. I’ve never been so complimented in my life. It makes me very humble and I realise how lucky I am to have one of the best jobs ever!!!
Tell us a secret! I’m actually not a very confident person and pretty shy too, but as soon as I step behind the decks I become a whole different person. Music brings out the best in me!
