“Learning to DJ with Spin Sistas online has been a total dream! Like having two old friends in your living room, they made an easeful introduction to the somewhat daunting land of decks. Articulate, fun and inspiring the course was so well presented and each episode a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to soak in. Thank you for the journey Lainie and Rach, I have enjoyed it immensely” – Bee Robertson
“I recently took part in the beginner female dj course. The course was super informative and is the perfect place to start your journey if you are wanting to learn. Lainie and Rach are total legends and have such great energy and knowledge to share. There were also weekly zoom chats with the other girls in the course which were a great opportunity to discuss tips and progress. Highly recommended!” – Sasha Gardiner

Talofa I’m Rasela Torise, DJ name Chopsuey.
I’ve been DJing for almost 20 years. It’s hard to say when it all began but music’s guided me through life from as long as I can remember.
Music took me to London in 1989 at the age of 19 where I was first exposed to DJ’s in the early 90’s, they were my friends and the ones who enabled us all to carry on partying long after the clubs pubs and bars had closed or kicked us out…

“Lainie was immensely helpful! Super easy going and professional. She took the time to sit and go through what I needed as an individual which I benefited greatly from. She taught me not only the DJ basics but also emphasised the importance of being independent and knowing what’s what to go into the industry and represent women – 10/10” Thanks, Marj.
