DJ Diva is a female internet DJ who works with websites, bloggers, and individuals to create tailored mixtapes for exclusive and particular needs. An avid clubhead, DJ Diva has been spinning Old School, R&B and HipHop music in bars, lounges and various parties since 2000. Starting in 2007, she became the first female DJ to create a regular weekly R&B podcast on the internet entitled the “Monday Mixtape”. Themixtress.com, her website,contains over 300 mixtapes which receive continual hits. Her specialty is Old School music from the 80’s and 90’s, and she also explores other genres of music, yet her insight for future classics is uncontested! She was professionally trained in 2008 at the renowned Scratch Academy, where she earned the respect of her instructors and her peers for her unique ear and playlist arrangement.
What makes her an expert in the assembly of exceptionally specialized mixtapes? One listener said it best:
“When you tailor a mix, you do it with emotion. You make the listener feel each song of the mix and you do it with grace and expertise. Whatever mix I pick up to hear, the title and the song choices will transport me to that picture you are creating. You are an artist, but it’s like you paint with song placement.”
DJ Diva has become a favorite DJ of, and has worked with, many of your favorite Bloggers such as Afrobella, DearZette, Inkcognegro, The Soul Reservoir, The Black Tech Report, Tee Erika Patterson, Music Looks Like This, and the Kitchen Rebel.
When Jimi Izreal wrote his book “The Denzel Principle”, he hired DJ Diva to produce 2 mixtapes for social media promotion. These
mixtapes were record breaking and distinctive due to the banging jams and Jimi’s provocative spoken excerpts, laid over relevant and enjoyable instrumental beats. This was also the first time an author had worked with a DJ for such a distinctive venture.
DJ Diva has also done personalized mixtapes for award winning and well known websites such as:
DearZette.com: Website Re-launch – Neo Soul Groove Mix 2011
SoulBounce.com: DJ Diva was made their first female mixologist in 2010
CentricTV.com: Art of Seduction in 2010

For the last two years she has participated in the BART, which is best known as the Best Albums Roundtable, where podcasters, bloggers, and music producers discuss the best music issued throughout the year, and talk about what may be arriving in the near future.
