Tickled Pink #19 with Katie Drover, Virginia Le & Ms Gove

Author: Tickled Pink
Monday, 13 August 2007
Melbourne has many talented female DJs on the scene, so it was hard to narrow down the list of who we wanted to play at Tickled Pink. We decided to bring you a nice mix of style and flavour.

Music, in all its guises, is a passionate interest for Katie Drover and has been since she started piano lessons at the age of seven. DJing has been her creative expression for the last four years and, at the age of 19, Katie walked into her first residency at Room 680 in Hawthorn and has held solid residencies ever since. The role of the DJ, she says, is to keep exploring.

Ms Gove exploded on to the Melbourne scene when she won the 2006 Miss Vinyl competition. With a rocking set that just could not be beaten, her mixing skills, music selection, style and the whole package were very highly scored by the judges. With three years experience under her belt in the Melbourne DJ scene, the breakbeat and electro spinstress has turned many heads since her first gig at Arthurs Bar in November '05. Her sets so far have been absolute crowd pleasers - she knows what the punters want and will deliver it strongly!

A self-confessed vinyl addict, Virginia Le has spent the last five years working at several record stores around Melbourne. Her knowledge and passion for dance music saw her recruited by Australia's premier record store, DMC Records. Virginia's sound is a unique and addictive fusion of deep German minimal, tech-house and techno, resulting in her becoming one of the most in demand DJs in Melbourne, with residencies and guest spots at some of its most respected club nights and events.

If that's not quite enough for you, Tickled Pink residents Danni B, Elektra, Sass and Miss Chris are also joining in the fun for a night of female delight.
