RPM SPOTLIGHT: Rosy Ross
Rosy cut her teeth sharing an eclectic array of music for friends at house parties, through whatever medium she could. This naturally led to her expressing her selections in front of a set of turntables.
With this momentum, Rosy founded an open decks club TBAM - the most excellently titled “There’s Been A Mix Up” which is a tongue in cheek reference to the idea of an ‘amateur’ stepping up to the professional-looking (and, frankly, intimidating) DJ booth and taking over for the night.
The night welcomes and encourages DJs of all levels to explore what it feels like to play music out for the first time in front of an audience at venues such us Folklore, Theatre Deli & Off The Cuff Bar in London
Rosy also is no stranger to radio - in fact she’s well acquainted, she is senior producer for Threads Radio and also hosts her own shows ‘En Vacances’ & ‘Back To Ours’ on the station.
While En Vacances explores the edges of balearic, disco, italo, synth pop, house and other gems her other show on Threads with Casey Dewhurst “Back To Ours” provides tunes for all stages of the after party.
If that wasn’t enough radio shows to shake a record at, Rosy’s formerly hosted a Disco show on AAJA Radio aptly titled ‘Disco to Disco’ - a deep exploration into the genre and its inspirations and offshoots.
When not on air Rosy’s picked up a steady stream of gigs playing at venues such as Dalston Superstore, Rye Wax and Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, where you’ll find her spinning her signature blend of sounds from boogie, dub, disco, italo, house, chuggers to balearic, & psychedelic sounds flying solo or as a core member of DJ collective Sisu
