BIOGRAPHY
Born and raised in England, Fortune got hooked on electronic music during the eruption of rave culture in the late 80s and early 90s. She moved to California in 1993, right as Dr. Dre dropped the Chronic and sought out her hip-hop education. In 1999 she started djing playing mostly hip-hop. 2 months later she played her first gig and soon had residencies at underground Milwaukee hip-hop establishments Mars Hotel and Quarters. She developed her style to include deep, funky, Chicago and tech house, breaks and techno and went on to play almost every venue that Milwaukee had to offer, from Dish to Thai Joes, Three to Fly Bar, as well as playing venues in Chicago, Madison and throughout Wisconsin.

Her achievements include: surpassing 35 other djs to win the Triple Threat DJ Battle in 2003; being the featured DJ in Info Magazine in 2004; founding LadyBeats, a monthly event promoting the female DJ as normal, not novelty; founding and running For U Events which currently holds down 2 weekly, a bi-weekly and 3 monthly events in the city of Milwaukee; and being recognized as a Scion Emerging Artist of 2005. Her residencies have allowed her to play alongside numerous djs but the highlight of her DJ experience so far was in 2001, when she visited Qbert at his home in San Francisco and scratched with him and Flare at the Octagon. This success has allowed her to DJ professionally full time, and stay home with her 3-year-old son Akio during the day.

Fortunes’ main mission will always be to make people happy. “Some dj for the buzz of controlling the crowd, some for glory, others for the creativity. Since I was a child I have always been moved by music; providing the medium that brings that same enjoyment to others, making them smile, dance or just close their eyes for a moment, is what really fulfills me.”
