Rhiannon's DJing style is high-energy, interactive, and fun. She plays exciting sets that inspire people to be in the moment, dance, and forget the rest. Rhiannon is a house music lover. As a versatile artist, however, she can produce, play, and perform everything from house (bass, future, electro, deep, and tech) to trap, moombahton, hip hop, and mash-up. Such versatility in both style and skill has made Rhiannon a popular DJ amongst a wide variety of party-goers. She can please everyone from top 40 crowds to raging EDM fans to picky underground house heads. Rhiannon knows what people want on the dance floor and she delivers it with compassion. Her goal is to bring this dynamic level of talent, positivity, and personality to the music industry worldwide.
Since Rhiannon spent the first eight years of her DJ career playing on vinyl and turntables, her ears are well-trained. She mastered Serato on the side but prefers to show off her live mixing skills by using minimal technology - just a USB flash drive and a couple of CDJs (no sync or laptop required). A true professional and crowd-pleaser, Rhiannon never pre-plans her sets or plays the same set twice. She treats each show like a unique experience and taps into the style and mood of each audience that she performs for. Rhiannon selects tracks on-the-fly, mixes seamlessly, and speaks live on the mic to connect with people. Her infectious energy casts a spell on the room, drawing ears, eyes, and hearts to the stage for an unforgettable experience.
