NICOLA: After years of messing about with playlists and amassing a vast collection of tunes from many genres I took a Digital DJ course at Dubspot in New York City. I use Traktor software and and a Traktor S4 controller for DJ'ing. This portable kit allows me to play at any venue by hooking up to existing PA systems.

I like to play an eclectic mix of well-known tunes and rare tracks, mixing current sounds with vintage gems.

Right now I am in Bequia, a beautiful island in St Vincent & The Grenadines. As well as one-off gigs for special events I have a regular residency at Sugar Reef on Lazy Monday Cocktail Hour.

I call myself DJ Tillergirl.
