Firstly, Welcome to the sesh seat! Tell us a little about yourself !
I’m LilMiss Jules I’m 43 from Cheshire I’m a married mum of two. I have one granddaughter and a grandson due to arrive any day now. I’m also a hard house DJ !
Exactly how little are you?!
Hahaha – I’m actually 4ft 11!
You’ve been on the scene for quite some time, when you originally started it was very much a male dominated occupation, how did you get into it and what made you do it ?
I started learning to play back in 2000 on vinyl. I was a singer at the time and wanted to get into some song writing so I went along to SSR in Manchester to sign up for a songwriting course but was told I was too old ? At the time I was only 26 so they offered me another course which was a government pilot scheme for DJs at technics DJ Academy in Manchester. So I thought what the hell. Yes it was very much male dominated as there was 250 males on the course with myself being the only female. Gladly I stuck at it and here I am today. Loving life !
You’re well known for your hard hitting hard house sets, has this always been your weapon of choice?
Absolutely yes it’s always been a weapon of choice. If it doesn’t make me stick out my tongue and scrunch up my face when I’m playing then I don’t enjoy it !
In your humble opinion, what is the best chocolate bar in existence?
I’m not really a chocolate lover to be honest, I’m more of a savoury type of gal but I am quite partial to a Starbar or a Turkish delight.
You recently played in Jon Hemming’s infamous shed.. we tuned in to watch ! Tell us more about how that came to be and how you felt doing it!
I’ve known Jon for over a year now and we have become really good friends. It was actually his wife Sian who invited me down to play. Playing in the shed was probably one of my proudest moments to be honest, the vibe in the shed and the people watching the live feed was just wonderful. The reaction that came after was even more wonderful. I had lots of inboxes of support and the comments on the feed where great just really positive. Playing in the shed led to me being signed by premonition artist which I’m absolutely thrilled about and can’t wait to see what happens next. so yes the whole experience in the shed and after was just fantastic, I can’t thank John and Sian enough absolutely love them both to pieces.
Your fella Ziggy, also DJ’s.. any plans for a B2B any time soon?
Yes he does, we met back in 2000 at technics DJ Academy and We’ve been playing together ever since. We ran our own event for 7 years called playground but put it all on hold to concentrate on family life. I love going back to back with Ziggy as we know each other inside out as djs and it’s just special to share that with my husband. We don’t have anything set in stone but I’d love to get the opportunity for us to do a back to back In The near future.
