DJ Rachael had been blazing trails since she first picked up a mic in the mid 90s. Starting out at Club Pulsations and Club Silk in her hometown of Kampala, Uganda, she soon switched to the turntables and never looked back. This year she celebrates 20 years of rocking parties, clubs and festivals across the East Africa region and beyond.
A phenomenal DJ, performer, MC and producer, Rachael is also a leading member of the much touted Santuri East Africa crew, and has even found time to found Femme Electronic – a movement to support female DJs and electronic music producers in partnership with Santuri and the Goethe Zentrum. She’s appeared on the BBC, worked with numerous international organizations raising awareness on important local issues, and remains a true party rocker extraordinaire. Mixing up styles from across the world effortlessly, Rachael has pioneered a ‘melting pot’ style in Uganda that has enraptured audiences over and over. Her mixes feature her own edits, fresh productions and remixes alongside hand picked bangers and homegrown vibes.
She has featured on the exclusive Blankets and Wines Edition 12 Smirnoff sponsored After Dark Party at the Uganda National Museum as well. Headlining Bayimba Festival in 2015, she brought the house down, and is now set to show the rest of the world why they call her “the undisputed”.
