Queenie gets loved up with Lady Lola

It’s June dear reader, that sparkling month of sunshine (I hope) and the desire to dance and prance!!! This month, I catch back up with the irrepressible and gorgeous Lady Lola to hear about her current deck action.

Hello, how are you? I’m doing great thanks. Managing to juggle being a mummy and a DJ quite well! Haha!

You seem to be a busy lady – where can we see/hear you playing? I’ve had so many amazing opportunities already this year and it’s only June! I’ve landed myself a residency at one of Brighton’s best underground nights- Berlin at the Green Door Store. And I still host my weekly radio show on codesouth.fm every Saturday 8pm-10pm plus I’ve got lots of gigs coming up in Brighton & London and even some festivals! I just did Nightshift all day party at The Tempest and upcoming I’m playing Noisily Festival, Leicestershire 7-10th July and Electric Battlefields Festival at Newhaven Fort 22nd July.

What music is rocking Lola’s world these days? Techno!!! I went to Berlin recently. And went to a night hosted by Stil Vor Talent. It was incredible!!!! I saw lots of DJs and producers that I admire and for me, the night was very musically enlightening.

What’s so good about playing in Brighton just now? Brighton has turned a corner in terms of music and clubbing. There are lots of independent promoters putting on great underground nights, and using alternative venues as well as the usual go to clubs. With the combination of promoters being passionate about music, great local talent and everyone supporting each other, this ultimately other means the music scene in Brighton has been thriving over the last year.

It seems amazing (is someone speeding up the months?) but Brighton Pride isn’t far away. It’s a bit early to ask about this year’s plans I know, but do you have any stand out memories from last year? For me, every year it’s playing the closing set in the Girls Tent in Preston ParkDjing in front of a home crowd of 5000+ is an amazing feeling!

Your little boy is a year old now – is he developing a love for all things ‘house’? He absolutely LOVES music! There is always music playing at home. Whether it’s house, Techno or lots of old skool tunes– like funk, Prince and even Frank Sinatra!

What’s your guilty pleasure? I’ve got too many to list! Hahaha!!

Describe yourself in three words! Compassionate. Vivacious. Whirlwind
