Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Mixxtress was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. At the age of 13 she received her first turntable along with a collection of old school Funk, R&B, Jazz and Hip Hop vinyl from her uncle. This allowed Mixxtress to expand her music knowledge and that’s when she knew her passion for music will soon lead her to be a Dj.
In 2005 she bought her first pair of turntables and mixer from a friend and after one year of practicing on vinyl Mixxtress landed her first residency at one of Seattle’s hottest nightclubs. In 2007 she was inspired to take Dj’ing to the next level by learning how to Scratch and Beat juggle. Since then her versatility and open format mixing combined with turntabalism has allowed Mixxtress to play at all the major clubs in Seattle including Trinity, Last Supper Club and Volume to name a few. This also led her to be part of the Dj roster for one of the largest Dj booking companies in the world founded by the legendary Jam Master Jay of Run DMC called Scratch Events.
Mixxtress also earned national acclaim by placing 3rd in her first DMC Battle in 2014 being the first and only female to ever place in the U.S DMC Battle in Seattle as well as the whole west coast.
Currently Mixxtress spins for events/tours for leading brands such as Nordstrom’s, H&M, Guess, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Living Social’s Sumo + Sushi, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series and teaches Dj classes at the Rain City Rock Camp for Girls. All while continuing to rock nightclubs and preparing to enter the DMC Battle & the Winter Music Conference Spin-Off battle in 2015.
