Currently a member of TheLadyz / Ladybugz, resident and promoter of TBC and Adventures in Paradise and a regular at Soundclash, Katie has had a long and credible career as a DJ on radio and in clubs and festivals all over the UK and abroad.
Katie Barber has a long and varied history as a DJ and promoter, one that sees her firmly established as highly in demand not just in London and the UK but throughout the globe. Katie caught the DJ bug back in the early 90s but things really kicked off for her at the tail end of the decade with residencies for the Dorado record label and Patrick Forge and Phil Asher’s highly influential Inspiration Information nights at the Notting Hill Arts Club. Since then she’s performed and held down residencies at a myriad of festivals including Glastonbury, The Big Chill and Croatia’s Garden Festival , clubs such as The End, Fabric and Plastic People and famed nights like Need 2 Soul, Faith and Co-Op. She’s played alongside a roll call of some of the world’s finest DJs including Kerri Chandler, DJ Deep, Jerome Sydenham, King Britt, DJ Spinna, Karizma, Norman Jay & the Idjut Boys to name just a few.
On top of all this Katie still finds time to be a founder member of the all-girl DJ collective Ladyz, formerly Ladybugz, as well as running her own nights, Adventures In Paradise and TBC, and can often be found hosting radio shows for Ministry of Sound and Rinse FM. Equally at home playing to 1000 plus people at the Montreaux Jazz Festival as she is in an intimate party with friends, Katie is a true mistress of her craft. With an encyclopaedic knowledge rooted deep in the core of dance music Katie is an asset to any party anywhere you may find her.
