LOLA began DJing in 1999 after spending nearly 10 years in New York City's club and music scenes. She attended several now-legendary parties and clubs in NYC's early 90s, including "Soul Kitchen," "Giant Step," The Palladium, Twilo, Club USA, "Cafe Con Leche," "Sugar Babies," "Bang the Party," Sapphire Bar, Sound Factory B ar Wednesdays, and the Limelight.
Lola was drawn to the freedom of expression she felt possible in clubs. As she discovered her niche, she discovered "Bang the Party" where she met her friend and soon-to-be DJ partner, Eric "EMan" Clark.
Lola founded her five-years-and-running weekly event "Deep See" with EMan in May 2000. The party grew to a cornerstone of New York City's underground circuit and became a stopping point for most DJs when they visited New York. The roster of guests includes: Miguel Graca (Bombay Records), Slam Mode (Spiritual Life), Lenny Fontana, Jaymz Nylon, Neil Aline (Chez Music), Matthias Heilbronn (Wave Music, Soulflower Ent.), Dennis Ferrer (Sfere, Ibadan), Osunlade (Yoruba), DJ Pierre, and many others.
Lola has played in many venues in New York City including the Sullivan Room, Cielo, Luke & Leroy, Speeed, Le Souk, Sapphire Bar & Lounge, Frank's Lounge (Brooklyn), Centro-Fly (RIP), Baktun (RIP), the Duplexx, and several others. She has played internationally in Montreal, Canada, and in the states in Washington D.C., New Haven, CT, Miami, Florida, and Pittsburgh, PA.
In addition to producing Deep See, Lola organizes occasional events under her media/production company, mochilab media.
Lola also occasionally contributes writing to magazines and websites on various topics, including music. She has contributed most recently to "Earpllug" and "Bright Ideas," the journal of the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation.
