DJ Roman Candles, aka Gemma Whitfield, is a Birmingham-bred “next generation” DJ who has already seen a lot of love from BBC Radio. And now? Well, she’s only gone and put together the very first, for-your-ears-only DIVA Mix Of The Month!
Only available here on the DIVA website, the #DIVAMixOfTheMonth is coming to you just in time for Brighton and Amsterdam Prides this weekend – and with a mix of new stuff (hello CATQ) and old classics – it’s sure to make you feel all of the queer vibes.
LISTEN HERE (Oh, and turn up the volume?) 🎶
Inspired by soul, disco, Latin grooves and Chicago house, Roman Candles presents, “a blend of authentic and progressive dance music influence.”
Soon to release on Marshall Jefferson’s label Freakin 909, she’s previously played at both Birmingham and Coventry Prides, and has plenty more coming up – find out more on her Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
