The next DJ to announce is the fantastic Ronnie Grafter. Without the tireless hard work from this lovely lady this event would not be anywhere near as fantastic as it is. Absolute honour and joy to work with 🙂
Ronnie Grafter, the Plastic Housewife, the reluctant DJ, the selective selector….so many pseudonyms but guaranteed to be loaded with a collection of eclectic vinyl spanning 29 years of repetitive beats; from Acid House, Electro, Techno and oddities often outside of her comfort zone and limitations. Preferring not to follow what’s populist, playing mostly Techno and what many don’t; she’ll always pay respect to the old and respected tunes in her collection.
Gently bullied to play by her closest of friends, family members and husband much of her adult life; she was forced to make a start approximately 2 years ago. The journey has been both terrifying and amazing but this undeniable Grafter by name and nature loves it.
Her brief journey up until now has had her play with and for DJ’s she’s admired and respected. Taking her out of the UK, meeting fabulous people and seeing places she never would have if not for the invitation. Many nights played have been the icing on the cake; in particular playing twice at her favoured and frequented London night of choice Don’t, and for The Warsaw Torture Boyz at Out of Sync in Poznań at Project Lab.
Paul Elemental deserves a mention for having the foresight and taking the risk of booking the reclusive Grafter for his Elemental parties twice; it paid off and ultimately secured her subsequent bookings at Don’t and beyond.
Stints on radio have also featured, playing for the likes of Report2Dancefloor and RIOT Radio, however due to poor health with which MS has been an inconvenience it’s not always been possible to accommodate requests outstanding but, their time will come.
She’s certainly come a little way and out of her shell somewhat since the daily rinsing of Dr Teeth and the Electrical Mayhem’s Jam, featuring Animal from her treasured the Muppet’s Musical Album circa 1979, and yes, she’s that young!
