DJ Roxanne Born, but not raised in the Bronx of New York City, Roxanne moved to Florida in 1984 and at the age 15 she was awarded a scholarship to attend the Dillard School of Performing Arts where she gained a background in music theory.
Being involved in music most of her life, she was an accomplished guitarist in local bands but that gave way to her desire to be involved in all styles of electronic music, especially Drum and Bass. Roxanne discovered electronic music in the mid 90’s while working in a nightclub. “I was fascinated by the way a DJ could control a crowd and how much energy would be in the room”.
Once hooked, Roxanne spent much of her time learning the skills to become a DJ. After only six months of dedication perfecting her skills, her hard work paid off in the form of bookings. Her style developed into mainly the harder, darker and more aggressive sounds of drum and bass and she is able to peak the energy levels within a set again and again.
She has been ripping it up at parties throughout South Florida and playing at events all over the U.S. for the past 14 years. During the summer of 1999, Roxanne relocated to Los Angeles to further pursue her career as a top notch DJ and producer after outgrowing the scene in Florida. Since moving to L.A., Roxanne has become a favorite at many of the weekly drum and bass clubs including the longest running most successful Drum & Bass night in Los Angeles “Respect” and has earned quite a reputation at the larger events both locally and out of town.
She has had several releases including “Hypnosis” which was released on Vortex Recordings, and has remixed E-Sassin’s track entitled “Fragment” on Thermal Recordings. Over the past two years Roxanne has been widening the scope of her music selection by branching out and playing other styles of electronic music including Techno, Electro, and Breaks.
This veteran DJ is quickly becoming a favorite within these genres all over Los Angeles at local clubs and on various radio shows. Contact Roxanne for bookings at DJRoxanne@hotmail.com
