The world’s number 1 female and a right proper DJ regardless. Charissa Saverio, aka DJ Rap has “the whole package” according to Billboard. From spinning, producing and remixing to owning her own label, modeling and doing commercials, Saverio really knows how to work the music business. She should, being that she helped usher in many of the UK’s most popular genres of music, specifically drum and bass and electronica. But don’t get it twisted, Rap is also a fierce progressive DJ. According to her, she’ll be bringing “beats for your feet, vocals for your mind, strings for your heart and bass for your groin,” to Club Glow this Thursday.

Rap muses about how she was exposed to EDM. “When it first started in England it started in pubs…It wasn’t a DJ culture…I remember the first time in a pub…we’d get on the mic, we’d all be drunk and pretending to rap, which is how I got the name Rap, you know, amongst other reasons… The first time I went to a proper rave was in Hackney, on Wallace Road in an obscure dusty warehouse.”

Rap’s most famous work is her album “Learning Curve,” which received rave reviews from Rolling Stone and went multi-platinum. Her most famous track off that album is “Good To Be Alive,” which was remixed by Deep Dish among others.

“I’m just trying to make pieces of work that I’m proud of forever,” says Charissa, “and I hope kind of classic, in the respect that they’ll still be played.” While she considers drum and bass her forte and has recently released tracks with her new DnB band, she also makes it a point to mention her love to showcase house, the genre of EDM that got her into the scene in the first place. Her work has been remixed most recently by Austin Leeds and Starkillers.

Come out to Lima Restaurant & Lounge this Thursday to experience one of the Original Gangstaz of electronic dance music. Glow happens every Thursday at Lima DC Nightclub and every Saturday at Fur Nightclub.
