Testimonial:

“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”
