Originally from Snowdonia, Pickle’s DJing took off when she moved down to Cardiff. Inspired by a love of the euphoric sounds coming out of the hard house and trance scene, and watching her friends mixing, Pickle took to the decks. Since then she has been totally hooked! The early influences of listening to and partying to such uplifting music are clearly visible in her DJ sets, even though she plays progressive House, Electro and Electro Swing. In terms of Progressive House, some of her influences come from quite tribal sounding record labels such as Iboga, Echoes Records and Tribal Vision. When it comes to electro, she is influenced by the recent funky sounds being produced by artists such as Mord Fustang, Deadmau5 and Alex Kidd (USA).
Pickle’s DJ career began when she started to play for various Traffic (Cardiff
University’s clubbing and DJing society) events in Cardiff. Along the way, she has held residencies at a number of Cardiff nights, including Klokwerk, Serious Sounds, Processed and Barsha. 2011 was an exciting year for the DJ, as she burst on to the UK festival circuit, playing at Glade, Nozstock, Springstan and Pugshole, as well as at several Tribe of Frog parties. 2012 started off with a bang, as the DJ got singed to Digital Mind Records, and continued playing at various underground parties in Cardiff and Bristol, including Tribe of Frog, Psyanide, Barsha and BeatNyx.
