Hey Mr DJ fundraising event for Village Fair

By Rupert Bates

She mixes dubstep, electro and progressive house into a distinctive Sussex scout hut dance sound and has been hailed as a genre-defining musical entity the world needs more of.

But enough about Rachael Babister, who along with Tara McHale is once again organizing Hurstpierpoint’s Hey Mr DJ event in aid of the Village Fair.

Hey Mr DJ will take place on Saturday May 6th from 7.30pm in the Hurstpierpoint Scout Hut and those looking to channel their inner Guetta or Garrix, or even Sussex’s very own Fatboy Slim, can buy tickets and submit their top three tunes.

“Prior to the event we will draw at random the names of 14 DJs who will get the chance to spin the decks to their favourite songs, supervised by our very own professional DJ Emma Warner,” says Rachael.

“Emma, the only person I know who mixes DJ with IT, will make sure your mixing matches your magic and the dance floor keeps jumping all night. At the end of the evening we will crown the Superstar DJ – the one who gets the most people on the dance floor.”

Emma, or rather DJ-Em-Z, has a love for all genres of music – currently specialising in house and funk. The likes of Madonna, Queen, Blondie, Rick Astley, The Cure, Adam Ant and even opera and folk, have all played their part in making her as she modestly claims ‘one of the top ten female DJs in Hurstpierpoint!’
