Esther has been DJing for the last 20 years all over London and Southend: The Electrowerkz, Soma, Bar Boogaloo, The Sunrooms. She currently DJs regularly at the Railway Hotel in Southend-on-Sea and previous radio experience includes the Soup Sessions on Radio Nova Lujon.
“I play anything from 50’s R&B and 60’s Soul to early 70’s Funk, Rare Groove, Latin and Jazz, plus later tunes with the same sort of vibes. Always vinyl and often 7’s, you’re not always going to get the cleanest of sounds but there’s a whole lot of warmth and probably a little bit of crackle.
Sometimes I just pull out a record at random and go from there, kind of an old skool iPod shuffle. You may not know everything that I’ll play, but hopefully you’ll still enjoy it anyway.”
