Born and raised in the lively London's Brixton, Dushi is a DJ and producer indebted to a life spent raving. A child of the legendary DnB and free party scene that filled clubs and warehouses in the capital, Dushi has carried that unique energy through to her own productions. Whether rolling out hardstep, liquid or jump-up, the open-minded spirit of rave is at the heart of both her productions and fluid, club-ready DJ sets.
Dushi’s productions have garnered instantaneous support from some of the most-recognisable and important names in DnB, including DJ SS.

Always producing, a fruitful time in the studio then lead to a return to record in 2017, linking up with DJ Hazard's Radius Recordings for the colourful, halcyon four-tracker ‘Dimensions’, including a festival-wrecking collaboration with vocalist, Deleelah.

She also contributed a cut to Soulvent Records’ ‘Summer Soul’ compilation, incorporating her own voice as well as studio, and receiving support and Rinse FM play from Hospital Records’ boss Chris Gross.
Dushi’s release schedule has been bolstered by wide support from a broad range of DJs, including plays on both Radio 1 and 1xtra from tastemakers such as Fabio and Grooverider, Friction, Bailey and Rene Le Vince. A lifelong devotee to radio, she has also recorded guest mixes for Marcus Nasty on Rinse FM, Renegade Hardware, Capital FM and the Rework podcast series.
With a number of exciting new releases on the horizon, forging a link between DnB’s storied past and it’s open-minded future, wherever Dushi goes, it’s in her own words “peace, love and frequencies…
