Engineers Without Fears
While the majority of her work is in the jungle style, her more successful work is in traditional electronic music. DJ Rap has been voted the #1 female DJ in the world by Shejay. She owns, records for, runs and A&Rs two labels Propa Talent and Impropa Talent. She is also a producer, model and actress. DJ Rap grew up all over the world and was born in Singapore, daughter of an Italian father and an Irish-Malaysian mother. She lived in Walthamstow, East London for quite some time before she became a DJ.
She has worked as an engineer and produced many hits, often collaborating with other artists. After being the first artist on the scene to self-release her first CD, she signed to Sony along with Grooverider and Leftfield.
Her most well-known artist album, Learning Curve, was released in 1999 to critical acclaim and resulted in several stylized music videos, including two versions of "Good to Be Alive" (one for the CD version and another for the rarer radio remix) and "Bad Girl", a song about having to be a strong woman to survive in today's world. Rolling Stone gave Learning Curve three and a half stars, stating "this is the record Madonna wanted to make". Learning Curve went on to sell over a million copies bringing her total sales to over 3 million worldwide, including her successful compilation sales including Journeys by DJ, Propa Classics Vol. 1 and 2, Brave New World, Armani Exchange CHEMISTRY and Touching Bass, Bulletproof, Up All Night, which have all crossed many genres and has become her trademark.
DJ Rap has also done vocals for several artists, including BT (for "Giving Up the Ghost") and Art of Trance (for "Madagascar [Domi Nation Remix]"). She once appeared in a commercial for Twix candy bars.
