Artist Information

Sandra Collins Bio

Sandra Collins’ in-demand DJing has kept her constantly globetrotting – everywhere from Los Angeles to New York and Miami, from Argentina to Chile, Mexico and Peru, from Indonesia to New Zealand, from Hungary to Ibiza, from Romania to Russia and the UK.

What began as a humble interest morphed into serious business in the 90’s, when Sandra Collins emerged as one of the Los Angeles rave scene’s major players. Sandra is now, without question, one of the most recognized and beloved DJs in the business.

With her incessant worldwide touring, massive press coverage and hundreds of thousands of albums sold, Sandra has solidified her place as one of the most well-known female DJs in the world. The DanceStar Awards awarded her the 2003 Best DJ award over the likes of Louie Devito, Deep Dish and Bad Boy Bill among others. This award is part of a long list of stellar career achievements, which include URB Magazine’s 1999 “Best Female Artist”, an honor she shared with Lauryn Hill. Sandra Collins is also one of the few female DJs that graced DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs. Sandra also hosted the International Dance Music Awards in 2006 with Daniel Glass.

DJ Rachael P Bio

For me, music is my way of communicating to, and connecting with complete strangers, without saying a single word. My love of music started when I was 6 and snowballed from there. I went from piano, violin, clarinet, saxophone, guitar, bass guitar to DJing. My obsession with House music started in high school (god bless the Mechanical Pulse) and has grown ever since. I’m a house head forever…at least until I die. The thrill I get when I’m playing is addictive. It’s my passion, my outlet, my therapy. I never know what the crowd will be like, how they will react to House music, or what way I’ll try to drive the vibe throughout the night. That’s part of the thrill and it never seems to get old. But when all is said and done, this is what it’s all about for me: “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” – Aldous Huxley
