Check out my DJ, DJ Queen Of Spades!

DJ Queen of Spades has always had a love affair with music.  While growing up in Toronto, Canada she explored her inner creativity through dance and dramatic arts which gave birth to a lifelong affair with music.  Of Italian-Jamaican decent and rhythm coursing through her veins, she founded dance troops Nu-Matik and Anonymous, which led her to a brief stint in PR and Marketing with Maddox Entertainment.  However, her breakthrough moment came in 1996, when she would regularly frequent the local record store with her best friend, a DJ at the time, and the spark to learn the craft of deejaying was ignited.   A connoisseur of a wide variety of music, her passion lies deep in hip-hop, house and R’n’B.  It was just a matter of time before she would emerge as The Queen of Spades.

When you have big dreams, it’s wise to learn from the best.  Queen of Spades diligently studied some of the most acclaimed in the business including DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Scratch (EPMD), Spinderella (Salt ‘n Pepa), Kid Capri, Funk Master Flex (Hot 97) and her good friend DJ Starting from Scratch to learn the intricacies of mixing records firstly on vinyl, and then later moving to the digital age with CDs and mixing software.   Realizing quickly that female DJs were not as widely accepted as her male counterparts, DJ Queen of Spades has had to prove herself to the club-goers and her peers that she is a force to be reckoned with.  Her unique ear for music has opened the door to spinning at the clubs she once frequented as a dancer.  Her earliest gigs at some of Toronto’s prominent clubs, grew into a string of bookings at numerous venues and weekly residencies. Now you can catch her in the most popular clubs and hotspots that span across Canada and The United States.  With all of this under her belt, it's no surprise that she has now been able to branch out and take her talents internationally.

DJ Queen of Spades is all the way original.  She is self-taught and admittedly says that she often listens only to the instrumentals of new music to take it in from a mixing perspective, before she listens to the album version.  It must be this dedication to her craft that garnered her repeated nominations for Female DJ of the Year at the Stylus DJ Awards since 2007.  Along with a handful of other female deejays in the city, Queen of Spades has had the opportunity to play alongside some of her male peers that she once looked to as mentors.  There’s no question that whether, she is spinning for celebrities such as; Rihanna, Beyonce and Drake, rocking events for NYFW or cutting up in style at MAC, H&M & The Gap, music lives in this Queen’s heart and soul.

DJ Queen of Spades has shown the world that she rules her own kingdom.  She has produced a popular CD series called “All Hail the Queen” which showcases her strength as a deejay, and her diverse taste in music.  This CD series illustrates how Queen of Spades remains on the pulse of new releases, and is an influencer that helps to break new music into the market while keeping you up to date on what’s hot on the charts.  She has been a member of The Core DJs since July of 2009, the World’s Largest Professional DJ Organization, where she is one of a very small population of Canadian DJs.  Queen, continues to be recognized for being a leader and top trendsetter in the industry.  With an endorsement by world renowned Monster Products, as one of their "Famous Monster DJs" with the likes of some of the world's best DJ’s, she continues to set the bar within the DJ culture.  Radio has always been a goal and passion for Queen of Spades, so there was no hesitation when she was offered to host her first show; The Royal Treatment on Globe Radio in 2007. The signature online show which originated in Toronto has been broadcast nationally through 3 different mix shows.  Along with her signature show, Queen has also showcased her skills on Tulsa Oklahoma's #1 Hip Hop & R'n'B station KJAMZ 105.3, Buffalo’s Legendary WBLK 93.7 and, is also in regular rotation on Shade 45 on Sirius XM Radio.

DJ Queen of Spades is an outgoing, friendly, down-to-earth woman who truly understands the art of deejaying having been immersed in the culture from all aspects; the listening ear, the dancer and now the party rocker.   It is a privilege to get to know her as a person and a DJ, for when you walk beside her, you walk amongst royalty.

All Hail DJ Queen of Spades!
