Renegade Riddims: Missy C

Share

Missy C, or Carly as her friends call her, discovered her passion for Drum & Bass at just 15 years old, when she stepped into her first rave at Mass in Brixton. From that electric night on, her love for the genre only intensified. She became a familiar face at clubs like Air and the Custard Factory in Digbeth, and she didn’t shy away from travelling abroad to experience raves like Innovation and Sunbeatz.

Fast forward 20 years and Carly’s life took a thrilling turn when she met Jaydan. It was during the lockdown in April 2021 that their romance ignited, with Jaydan becoming her patient mentor in the art of DJing. With his guidance and three Pioneer XDJ1000 decks, Carly found her true calling. She realized she was destined to be Missy C.

The journey from newbie to sensation was swift. Within weeks, Missy C received a message from DJSS inviting her to play at his rave in the ‘Rudegal Arena’ at Leicester’s 2Funky Cafe complex, alongside industry titans like Bladerunner, Grooverider, and more. That first booking was just the beginning.

Since then, Missy C has rocked stages at various events, from Raveology to The Bellyman Show in London. Her talents have taken her beyond borders, with gigs in Amsterdam, Canada, and Prague. But it’s in the heart of the D&B scene, particularly in Birmingham, where she’s made her mark.

Building a devoted fan base didn’t happen overnight. Missy C clinched seven DJ competitions in 2023 alone, earning spots at events like NuFrequency and securing residency with Subvert. Her mixes, showcased on Soundcloud under her series ‘Bootlegs and Bangers,’ reflect her signature style: intricate, technical, and always fresh.

Missy C’s sets are an experience. Whether she’s spinning dark rollers or delving into more melodic tracks, her energy is infectious. Each performance is a journey, carefully crafted with double drops and a keen ear for new releases. But beyond the decks, it’s clear that for Missy C, it’s all about the music—from the heart to the dancefloor.

Today Missy C joins our Renegade Riddims series with a brand new and exclusive mix. The mix features music from the likes of Jaydan, S.P.Y, Enta, ZeroZero, DJ Zinc, DJ Hybrid, Dillinja, Jam Thieves, Kleu, DJ Hazard and loads more!
