Spend 69 Seconds With Vancouver’s DJ Riot.


DJ RiotCurrently one of the most prominent female DJs in Vancouver’s music scene, and half of Team Bangn!, DJ Riot has been setting dance floors on fire since 2007 and has just wrapped up a West Coast tour.

With a classically trained background, she has gone from learning piano and theory from her Polish mother, to fronting punk rock bands, but has now taken her knowledge and passion for music to the dance floor.

Her dirty electro bangin’ style is setting a new standard in the city which has rapidly earned her a heavy following and opening sets for international electro artists including Steve Aoki and DJ Neoteric. A mix of hard electro, dutch house, dubstep and dirty bass, her ultimate passion is to make you sweat!

DJ Riot is a contestant in the Hot Gay DJ project and looks forward to your support on June 3rd for the Hot Gay DJ Davie Village Tour and on August 2nd for the grand finale event.

01Your first job.
A newspaper route in my hometown Port Moody, B.C.

02The job you wanted as a child.
A Firewoman.

03Your hero.
Angelina Jolie for not only being extremely talented, classy, and modest but also working with the UNHCR to travel the world and share her resources with less fortunate people. I think it’s extremely noble for a celebrity to forget about their ego and the delusional world of Hollywood and remember the reality of what’s going on in the world and contribute in some way.

04Your biggest indulgence.
Video games!

05One thing no one knows about you (and you are willing to share).
I grew up listening to classical music everyday.

06What’s getting the most play in your iPod right now?
Tons of Dubstep, AC Slater, Armand Van Helden and Crookers.

07The three things you would want with you on a deserted island.
A water filter, a solar powered boombox and a friend to share it all with.

08The name of the last book you read.
The Celestine Prophecy.

09 One word your best friend would use to describe you.

10 The one thing any visitor to Vancouver simply cannot miss.
Definitely can’t miss the seawall around Stanley Park and Wreck Beach, Vancouver’s nude beach!
