BIOGRAPHY
Of Australian origin, 26 year old Daneekah's dj career began in Melbourne, Australia in summer of 2003. Alongside fellow San Francisco dj Stepwise, AKA Andres Octavio, she began tag-teaming at various reggae and dancehall nights. This immediately led to other gigs, and also to the beginning of her first weekly Ruff Enuff. This was soon followed by 2 other weekly residencies in a country where reggae and dancehall audiences were small but quickly growing, in true underground style. Her career highlight was opening for Dj WhAT?! of the Beat Junkies. Daneekah went on to perform numerous times with well known Melbourne crews Chantdown Sound and Ghetto Fabulous, whilst also appearing on Melbourne radio shows RRR and PBS. In early 2004, she released her first mixtape, entitled "Dancehall Queens". This reggae and dancehall mix was 100% female artists, a refreshing change to a genre almost entirely dominated by men. BIg up the ladeez in reggae music!
In November 2005, she made the long awaited move to San Francisco, CA. March 2006 saw the release of another mixtape, "Dancehall 101", a mix of old and new dancehall mashed with hip hop riddims. This mix is available for free download at www.mk2systems.com. Click on Memekast >> mk003-March edition. This mix was also transmitted as a podcast. Daneekah also held a 7 month Thursday night residency at the Tunnel Top(601 Bush @ Stockton, San Francisco), where she was responsible for booking weekly guests. In San Francisco, she has also played reggae and dancehall parties at venues such as Studio Z, Il Pirata, Nickies, Ramblas Tapas Bar, Jasper O'Farrells & Madrone Lounge.
