Guest > Lottie > Biography
It has been a great couple of years for Lottie. Winning the Best New DJ prize at the Ericsson Muzik Awards in 1999, she then went on to grab a Top 50 spot in DJ Magazine’s DJ Of The Year poll in one of only nine women in a chart of 100 DJs.
Lottie’s talent was first spotted by the promoters of London’s leading night The Gallery where in 1996 she was selected as their weekly resident. Today as well as a host of International gigs, Lottie plays all over the UK and holds the title of being Bugged Out’s first lady, an honour indeed to be so highly regarded at this legendary Liverpool club.
Where Lottie shines as a DJ is in her quality of music and her insistence in only playing proper house. Spinning deep and tribal, through to tough and techy house with an added twisted disco and funky sound from UK and American labels; she is a consummate spinner. Although her insistence that music come first has strongly directed what media coverage she chooses, entering the world of TV and Radio was a natural step for Lottie, presenting for MTV at Homelands (2000) and appearing on Channel 4’s award winning Faking It show as a mentor to a classical musician who was trying to make it as a club DJ, she has also become a regular guest DJ, filling in for Danny Rampling on Radio 1.
Productions include ‘The Sound’ on Duty Free Recordings and ‘The Yob’ with Trade DJ Malcolm Duffy on Remote. Others include ‘Relax’ by Robbie Rivera, and Lottie’s favourite track, ‘Happy Days’ for Defected came out in June ‘99. During 2000 she completed a remix of Junior Cartier’s ‘Women Beat Their Men’ again with production partner Malcolm Duffy. Towards the end of the year she finished a remix of “Walk Of Life” by Billie on Innocent Records and her second solo single “Bushroot” (on Duty Free Recordings) was released in December.
Remix wise, Lottie added her flavour to ‘mountains’ by Meeker on Darren Emerson’s label Underwater, ‘Salsoul Nugget’ by M&S on FFRR and Desert's 'Lettin' Ya Mind Go' on Futuregroove/ Mute Records.
