It’s hardly surprising how, after such hard work to get her talents recognised, that Tina has stepped into a natural limelight. Her initiation into Djing consisted of playing out at illegal raves in Brighton in 1999. She would be one of the only women turning up with her records trying to blag a set, usually at around 8am in the morning after all the guys were mashed up. By the time everyone had been lambasted with 140+bmp hard techno, Tina would play house or old skool rave tracks and bring everyone back to life again whilst the sun would rise. It’s what Minotaur Sound calls the ‘Tina effect’ and she still has that magical knack today.
Tina is the perfect example of a DJ playing in her ‘flow’ and quotes ‘Music is like oxygen, I can’t breathe without it. It saved me from dark times and lifted me to new heights. Djing is a feeling, it flows through me like a lightsabre of energy. I’ve never been fixated on one kind of sound. To me music is energy and sometimes the room just needs a totally different energy shift. This is just like life and I’m never afraid to do this as that’s generated some of the best crowd reactions’.
