It is my greatest honour to receive the DJ Mag Top 100 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award. I accepted this award on behalf of Manchester – it’s such a rare occasion when anything like this is awarded North of Watford plus I have a sneaking suspicion that I am the first woman (black woman) to win it which makes it even more special and historic. This is also to prove that you don’t have to be an Instagram influencer with millions of followers to make your mark. If you can make a difference, be fearless and make a difference. This is also for anyone who gets knocked down nine times and stands up ten. I see you. And so do they.

ANTON STEVENS – DIRECTOR OF HIDDEN CLUB (MANCHESTER) is next in my line of men you should know about. He’s a music loving Mancunian born and bred, a Leeds University graduate, a techno dj, an events organiser and promoter, a club director, a blindfold-level nappy changer and a grafter who eats hard work for breakfast. He is the Director of Hidden Club in Manchester aka Anton Fitz (DJ) with a 360 understanding of clubbing from artist to promotion, marketing and events and he gives a deep insight into where his natural affinity to the job comes from and the behind the scenes graft required to take him from being a 13 year old schoolboy handing flyers out for his birthday party to maturing into a keen business man who can keep one of Manchester’s finest underground clubs running like clockwork even during the pandemic.

Welcome to Press Play! – A new concept for Twitch, where DJs share their genre-non conforming knowledge, beats and basslines. It’s a game of 90 minutes that nearly didn’t make it to air thanks to my Anker Hub exploding and my not having a back up (a lesson learned, back up bought and thank you full moon). But after half an hour of nerve wracking, technical jiggery pokery – the lovely (and very patient) Dave Brown Face Timed me – and my WFH set up – right back on air … and for that I owe him a great debt of gratitude. Enjoy.

Happy New Year and Welcome to the first Accaliberation of 2021. Since National Lockdown has been recommissioned for series 3, this month’s story time focuses on the theme of ’Never Alone’. I call on some soulful sages and wise wordsmiths from Soulclap, The Beatles, James Brown, Fame Gospel Choir, Marco Faraone, Bobbi Humphrey, Patrice Rushen, Brainstorm, Blaze and many more to channel a message of how we can make our way through this lockdown and the pandemic with dignity, a smile and a sweaty body. It’s a soul, funk, disco, house genre-hopper and tells an isolation story like only music and lyrics can.

Welcome to Episode 2 of ‘HEAR HEAR’. Consciously uncoupled from my Reform Radio show, it’s my chance to share the wisdom and joy of some extraordinary people in a lockdown regulated session that is exclusive to my YouTube channel. I am blessed and schooled this month by the inspirational and unfuckwithable Jamz Supernova. She’s a BBC 1Xtra and Selector Radio powerhouse and the brains behind the Future Bounce parties and record label and she brings the fire in some beautiful ways.
