Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The Lotus Queen first became inspired to DJ after listening to the legendary Friday Night shows on CJSW such as The Musiquarium, The Red Eye and Radiant ST8. Sensitive to music from an early age, after attending her first rave in 1996 she felt the unique energy that flowed between DJ and dancers. Although she enjoyed Trip Hop, house, hip hop, industrial, drum n bass became the best fit.
Lotus played her first gig in 1998 in the basement of what was then called Java Sharks (now Sal's on 17th) and was one of the first female drum n bass DJs in Calgary. Since then she has shared the bill with some great talent such as: DJ Rap, Tommy Illfingas, Ill-esha, DJ Tron and Blu Mar Ten and over a decade's worth of talented fellow Calgary DJs.
Her sets feature many styles of drum n bass especially sexy, soulful and energetic liquid. Ragga and some jump up make an appearance as well as non-shitty dubstep.
Lotus Queen rinses proper every friday night, on Remote Emissions, Calgary's longest running drum n' bass radio show (est. 1997). Rowdy dj mix sessions w/special guests, to introspective unplanned journeys, your soundtrack to your Friday night is taken care of:
