BIOGRAPHY
Betti Forde has been deejaying for a decade and holds residencies at some of the longest-running underground nights in Vancouver including Full Tilt Tuesdays at Republic (formally Stacked Tuesdays @ Celebrities), the notorious fetish party Sin City, and Flygirl Productions' events including Hershe Bar and Chicas - yet somehow she still finds time to play at Lick and Maxine's Hideaway most weekends and even Pop Opera in the VIP whenever Rhiannon has jetsetted somewhere. She has been touring internationally since 2003 and has rocked the world’s hottest club nights including Boombox in London and White Nights in Paris, and back home has been hand-picked to open for Diplo, CSS, Chromeo, Keoki, Blowfly, and Lady Miss Kier (Deelite). Betti also likes to sing, rap and bust into the splits, so she's one-third of the critially-acclaimed electro/hiphop outfit StinkMitt, who have played with everyone from Peaches to Para One, licensed tracks to the L-word, and changed the face of music forever.

In 2003 Betti founded Stacked Productions and has created and produced club nights and events such as the infamous Stacked Tuesdays and Victoria's annual charity bash Groovefest. Off and on since 1998 she’s hosted a radio show on CiTR 101.9 FM Vancouver - currently she's on the air with "The Broadcast" on Fridays from 1-2pm. In addition to all this rocking out, Betti is a huge nerd, so much so that before becoming a pro-DJ and indie-rap star, she was a feminist academic, musicologist and activist, achieving a B.A. (Hon.) and an M.A. in Women’s Studies and publishing several journal and newspaper articles on music as well as a full-length biography of Lydia Lunch titled “Lady Lazarus: Confronting Lydia Lunch” (Questing Beast, 2000). She believes that partying and politics can and should go hand in hand.
