For some serious weekend vibes, London-based DJ Tee Tee’s mixes are our go-to. If you don’t already you’re gonna want to get to know this babe. We made it easy for you and caught up with her to chat favourite gigs, dream collaborations and secret addictions…
Tell us about yourself…
I am a DJ first and foremost and I’m obsessed with anything music, fashion, beauty and travel related. Whilst living in NYC I became fascinated with the party scene and the high level of DJs so I enrolled in a a DJ School I saw a feature on in the New York Times called Scratch DJ Academy. I returned back to London and I guess you can say the rest is history.
When I first started out I was super obsessed with hip-hop music especially with the sound coming out of the Southern states. However, I’m from London, one of the most diverse cities in the world, so I wanted to stay true to that and started to broaden what I play because great music can be found in any style.
How do you find inspiration for your style?
Walking around London and having a little nosey around Instagram.
Who’s the coolest person you’ve met so far?
Where can we see you perform next?
This summer I am going to be at Supa Dupa Fly’s Rooftop Sessions
What’s the best gig you have ever played?
Ooooh how to choose there has been so many. I would probably say it was at club night called Slut Drop in Leeds which is put on by a group of dope females who feature all female DJs on their line up. It’s in a warehouse type space, not glamorous or boujis but the crowd is possibly one of the most fun to spin for because there are simply no rules.
What’s on the agenda for 2016?
Working with more brands, international gigs and more online mixes for people to listen to.
Who would you like to collaborate with and why?
MAC Cosmetics – 99% of my makeup is by MAC. They are one of the coolest beauty brands around with such great products.
Why do you think the relationship between fashion and music is so strong?
Because they are both allow you to express your individuality and together they really help tell a story about the person, the brand, etc.
