ELIZA Rose has broke a fresh music industry record, becoming the first female DJ to top the UK singles chart for over 22 years.
Her fresh hot track B.O.T.A – (Baddest of Them All) alongside Interplanetary Criminal has been dubbed a ‘zeitgeist’ for now – just as the ‘female boss’ vibe becomes mainstream in both British politics, football and culture.
The zany Londoner got into the music scene and fist hit the decs aged 15 after bagging herself a work placement at Flashback Records in Islington.
“I was really into Amy Winehouse at the time,” she told Dazed magazine, “and through her I started getting into soul, jazz and disco.
“When I realised that all of this was Black culture, and I was able to hold this physical thing in my hand that represented black culture, that’s when I started getting into records.”
She’s even bringing back a sense of wild hedonistic creativity not seen since the likes of Amy Winehouse with chic-extra fashion and a chilled vibe sound fresh from the dance floors of the London Underground club scene.
Her smash-hit number-one single “Baddest Bitch of Them All” has seen the newcomer take the UK Charts by storm.
The last time a female DJ took the top spot was way back in 2002 when Soniqe said It Feels So Good.
Riding the crest of the dance revival currently underway on the UK charts, following a six-week climb, Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal‘s B.O.T.A. (Baddest Of Them All) successfully un-seats LF SYSTEM’s long-standing chart-topper Afraid To Feel (2) to become the UK’s 1,400th Number 1 of all time.
