Can you believe it’s March already? The days are getting longer and whilst it might not be time to crack out your bikini it’s definitely time to get your lug-holes round some beautiful music – and this lady knows a magnificent tune when she hears one!!! So as we celebrate the budding trees, the lighter evenings and of course International Women’s Day, let the gorgeous Kerry Jean Lister provide the soundtrack. Whether on the dancefloor or via the airwaves, her passion for the groove will most certainly get you in the mood…….
Hello Kerry, how are you? I’m splendid, thank you for asking.
Where can we see/hear you playing these days? You can hear my Feel Up Radio Show on 1BTN 101.4fm, DAB+ and online 1btn.fm every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from midday to 2pm. And I’m also a resident DJ at Club Barbra which is held quarterly at the West Hill Tavern 67 Buckingham Place, Brighton.
Any other exciting projects for 2019? Club Barbra, the night I run with my fellow 1BTN presenters Suze Rosser and Queenie & Wildblood, returned to the West Hill Tavern on Friday February 15th and it was a cracking one!!!! Now we’re getting very excited about our 1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover on Friday March 8th. Following on from last year’s success we have an even bigger and better all female line up of specially programmed show between 8am and 12 midnight. Then on the Saturday 9th we have a night at Patterns with Honey Dijon with the 1BTN IWD Soundsystem with DJ Faro, Jayne Winstanley, Suze Rosser, Wildblood and Queenie and myself.
What music is rocking your world these days? UK vocalists including Cleo Sol, Yazmin Lacey and Fatima. I’m also hoping we’ll get some more new music from Lou Hayter this year – Cherry On Top was one of my tracks of 2018.
Always a tricky one but I have to ask…..what’s your favourite tune of all time? Oh god – I’d find it easier to pick a favourite child! OK let’s go with Prince’s Mountains – it’s definitely top 3 regardless!
What’s been your most memorable gig and is there anywhere you’d still love to play? Most memorable is DJing at the All Ends Up warehouse parties my friend James used to put on in East London. These nights were amazing! With proper old school dirty warehouse vibes and an amazing crowd of likeminded people I don’t think they will ever be topped! As to where I’d love to play it’s got to be at Horse Meat Disco!
Name a tune you wish you’d never played & why. I REGRET NOTHING!
What is your guilty pleasure? Without wanting to sound like a middle aged mum cliché, it’s most definitely wine!
Describe yourself in three words. Northern, optimistic and greedy.
