Exclusive Interview & Guest Mix: Promo ZO

Introducing Promo ZO a female Dj from Maidstone Kent U.K.

A lady you may of heard of already as Promo ZO has been working hard for many years within D&B but usually behind the scenes.

We asked a few Qs to find out more & what Promo ZO has planned for 2019.

 

Your Dj name is quite unique and stands out, any specific meaning behind the name?

Yea it’s kind of transferable!

My name is Zoe so in comes the abbreviation “ZO” and I have always been involved in some form of promotions, from club, vinyl, brand and product so it just kind of works and has stuck. 

When and why did you start to listen to and mix D&B?

I was taken in by D&B as a kid, we would listen to cassette recordings of Nicky Blackmarket and Ellis Dee in class, not that it was on the curriculum!

I then discovered if I hung out of my bedroom window with a coat hanger attached to my radio aerial I could pick up London’s Kiss 100 FM and tune into incredible specialist Jungle Drum and Bass shows hosted by the likes of Hype, Kenny Ken and Jumping Jack Frost. I remember listening to Pascal’s P-Funk Era on repeat on my Sony Walkman, it got me. 

In my home town of Maidstone in Kent we were lucky enough to have the legendary Atomics night club which was home to epic weekly events such as Heat and Pure Science plus we had an amazing record store Plastic Surgery Records, from there the culture became a lifestyle. I would have a go at mixing at friends after parties plus I worked at a couple of South London record shops and when it was quiet I’ll have a little roll out, I then soon bought my first set of 1210’s.  

 

You’re a lady whose been involved within D&B for many years, recently here at Drum+Basics we’ve noticed you’re now Djing more at numerous events and fully back doing radio..

When and where can D&B fanatics expect to see/hear you mixing again?

You can catch me live every Wednesday on Bassdrive from 2-4pm GMT broadcasting to the most dedicated Drum & Bass listeners across the globe.

That’s 8am-10am CET so for my American listeners it’s a breakfast show with quite a difference! 

I played out at the last Middle Skool at Work Bar which was really good fun, since then a few promoters have reached out so fingers crossed I will have some 2019 gigs to announce soon. 

Will you be adventuring down the music production route?

I am!

I’m often in the studio with KG and also 2Shy, between us we have cooked up a few beats. 

 

As a female DJ, have you noticed the sudden urge in females being inspired and stepping up within the music industry?

Yes, I think it’s great that more ladies are stepping up in every role.

I have worked amongst many women in the music industry over the years, those in key positions, some that are behind serious headline acts, clubs, events and labels. Some whom have hired me, some whom have helped make artists who they are today. 

My female DJ inspirations are comprised of ladies like Lisa Lashes, Kemistry, Storm, Lottie, Miss Pink, Lisa Loud, Smokin’ Jo and DJ Rap. Granted they are not all D&B DJ’s but none the less they are inspirational trail blazers in their own right. I am pleased to see that female DJs are beginning to be represented equally on line-ups, it is about time that the balance was right and it’s great that promoters are becoming more conscious of the often male-heavy bills yet they also have to be mindful not to book for the sake of gimmick, token or trend. 

What has been your biggest achievement so far?

Woah!

Beating Cancer!

Ok I know it’s not quite a music related achievement but it’s a big deal and it certainly put a lot of things into perspective for me. The support I received from the D&B family was incredible. Once in remission I did a charity skydive and donations came in from across the scene, I surpassed my target thanks to support from the likes of Andy C, Pascal, Delta Heavy, Ulterior Motive and many more scene figures to the point that the campaign was in the top 3 per cent of JustGiving campaigns that month.

That’s going to be a really hard one to top!

 

What are your plans, main goals for 2019?

To get stuck into more production.

I’m really liking the sound of the colabs that I’ve been a part of so the goal is really to progress on that and see where it leads. Maybe some releases, maybe some events, what matters to me is that whatever IT is, that it’s organic.

Of course any special thanks, mentions, final words?

Big thanks to you MaryAnne for taking the time to speak with me. 

I must send thanks to Keria EOC and all of the Middle Skool crew, Greg from Secondary School for pinching his brother’s cassette tapes, 2Shy MC, KG, Louis, Donovan, all the Bassdrive family and the amazing listeners.

Out to the ladies representing since day; Caroline, Jo Hines, Zara, Alicia, Tasha, Empress, Robyn Chaos and not forgetting MC Jakes, Anile, Digital, Total Science, Randall, GQ, Frost, Bryan G, Audio, Calyx, Night Shift, The Prototypes and everyone supporting.

I see you!
