Charlotte Devaney’s Top 10 Livestream Tracks
Since falling in love with dance music as a teenager, Charlotte Devaney has worked tirelessly to become one of the most unique, multifaceted artists on the electronic underground. She’s had a string of viral and underground hits throughout 2020 and it feels like the best is still to come.
Charlotte has had an incredible journey towards the top tier of electronic music and it’s been eventful, to say the least! Over the course of her career, she’s been a headline DJ, platinum-selling musical artist, radio host, record label owner, animal rights campaigner, video director and even a Hollywood actress. However, it is for DJing that she is best known.
After first taking to the turntables, Devaney quickly rose to prominence as a popular host and DJ on Invincible Radio and later Pyro Radio (a station she still broadcasts on). She was initially obsessed with hardcore, jungle and drum & bass, and was taught to DJ by some of Britain’s most iconic DJs, including Fabio and Randall. Devaney’s DJ career has flourished since she made her club debut in 2009, notching up headline sets all over the world, including such far-flung places as Barbados, Bali, India, Italy, Croatia, Qatar, China, Thailand and Turkey. Her success is due to her innate ability to read a crowd, work a dancefloor and rock a party with an eclectic, bass-heavy mixture of music.
As well as possessing tight technical skills and inspired track selection, Devaney is also renowned for delivering lively and passionate performances where she takes to the mic to host and spit rhymes. Naturally, these rhymes and sung vocals also provide a focal point for some of Devaney’s musical productions, which have appeared on a wide range of labels including Karma London Records, an imprint she founded in 2014.
Creative, driven, dedicated and hugely talented, it’s these traits that have seen her livestreams during lockdown do so well. ‘The Hologram Sessions’ is a unique watching experience where Charlotte is joined by MC’s via hologram. The sessions have been going since the first one kicked off on 1st July with Skibadee joining her… SKAAATTTYYY!!! Since then, she’s been accompanied by General Levy, Shabba D, MC Neat and Kele le Roc, Dread MC, Evil B vs B Live and Sweet Female Attitude (check them out here). Today (Monday 30th November) Charlotte is back with a special “DJ Taxi Edition” featuring the MC talents of Bellyman and Trigga!
Below, Charlotte has selected 10 tracks which she rates and has been using in a lot of her Hologram Sessions. This should help build your anticipation ahead of tonight’s show on Facebook Live at 7:30pm!
