Adam Melville, DC-11
THis is the big one peeps, in my eyes one of the UKs biggest female DJ and she is coming to Hartlepool on the same day as the Royal Wedding (bank holiday fri), read her impressive biography below then you will see why this is not to be missed, REBEKAH WE WELCOME YOU:
Rebekah’s love affair with electronic music began at the tender age of 17, going out and listening to legends such as Dave Clarke, Derrick Carter, Richie Hawtin and Billy Nasty at Bir...mingham’s legendary Que Club. This gave Rebekah her first taste into the world of deep house and techno.
In the six years that she has been Djing professionally, Rebekah has toured every inch of the globe, performing at some of the most exclusive parties and rocking clubs in the world. On her travels she has DJ’d in countries such as South Africa, Australia, Central America, Brazil, Italy, Russia, Dubai, Hong Kong and Thailand. She was featured on MTV for a party at Jianpula, Malta which was broadcasted to the whole of Europe! She is also no stranger to house music haven Ibiza where she has played on the terrace at Space as well as at El Divino.
Being on the circuit over the last few year’s means that Rebekah has played at some of the coolest nights and venues in the UK. These include regular performances at clubs such as Sankeys in Manchester and Turnmills in London as well as having Shindig, The Egg, the Cross, the Key, Canvas and the Honey Club performances under her belt.
Rebekah’s current UK commitments include a residency at popular underground venue; The Custard Factory in Birmingham where she performs regularly alongside world class acts such as Josh Wink, Steve Lawler, Andrew Weatherall, Eric Prydz, Switch, Paul Woolford, Lottie and Tania Vulcano to name a few.
Rebekah has also become a regular at some of the worlds most recognised and established festivals! Donning her welly’s, Rebekah has performed in front of massive audiences at UK festivals such as Escape into the Park, Wakestock and Global Gathering where she has performed on the Circo Loco stage in 2007 and Cocoon arena in 2008. Further a field, she is a regular at Serbia’s Exit festival having played on the techno stage for two consecutive years alongside acts such as Martin Landsky and Argy and will be making another appearance in 2009…. Testament to the fact that promoters always rebook Rebekah after seeing her perform live!
One million listeners tuned in to hear one of Rebekah’s biggest achievements to date, a Radio 1 interview by the notorious Fergie on a peak time Saturday evening. After he played her tech house, minimal and techno mix it was no surprise when Notion magazine approached Rebekah to do a three page spread on her as one of the UK’S hottest up and coming DJ’s. The press interest doesn’t stop there, M8 had their eye on Rebekah giving her a front cover and interview, pinning her down as a key breakthrough DJ.
In recent months on the DJ front, Rebekah has performed at some amazing parties such as playing in front of 2,000 people for Sven Vaths Cocoon - Sound of the Eighth Music tour at the legendary Que Club in Birmingham in May 2008 which was cited as the stand out electronic music event in the Midlands of the year. She was also asked to play the Global Gathering festival again in 2008 for a second year running this time in the Cocoon arena alongside Sven Vath, Adam Beyer, Loco Dice and Dubfire where she played a 3 hour warm up set for some of the most influential artists on the scene!
All this and now she is hitting DC-11 for a very special FREE party @ The Pearl Bar, Grand Hotel in Hartlepool.
DC-11 has been playing to packed crowds over the last few years and we wont stop there, keep a look out for us playing our 1st festival this summer.
