BIOGRAPHY
Deejay Bella, from Las Vegas, began radio disk jockeying in 1991 on KALX Radio, 90.7FM, Berkeley, California. She began gigging in clubs in the Lower Haight District of San Francisco in 1995. This led to appearances at venues such as Club Dread, Maritime Hall, 111 Minna, the DNA Lounge, and the Justice League (now The Independent). Her most memorable events were opening for the soldout Lee Perry, Mad Professor and the Robotiks show, Perry's first appearance in the U.S. in over 17 years, DJing onstage at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival with Scientist dubbing at the mixing board controls, and DJing for Sizzla's 4/20 Weekend Concert. Alongside the reggae events, she has played with desi breakbeat crew Azaad (now Dhamaal), Kollektiv, and Avaaz NYC. As a music journalist, she has interviewed many artists, including Culture, the Abysinnians, the Congos, Barrington Levy, Yami Bolo, Mykal Rose, Beenie Man, Afrika Bambaataa, Daddy Kool, and reggae historian Steve Barrow, and covered Brooklyn's Labor Day Parade and the Notting Hill Carnival in London. She has since delved more heavily into collecting original pressings of 60's-70's roots reggae and plays from this catalog for her podcast. She has produced two CDs - one roots reggae, and one an all-female dancehall and hip-hop underground mix. In the business of music, she has worked at Easy Star Records and Giant Step Marketing. Deejay Bella plays monthly gigs in Brooklyn, New York and special events across the U.S.
