the early development of Hip Hop throughout the 1970s. Afrika

Bambaataa is one of the three main originators of break-beat

deeJjaying, and is respectfully known as the “Grandfather” and

“Godfather” and The Amen Ra of Universal Hip Hop Culture as well as

The Father of The Electro Funk Sound. Through his co-opting of the

The First Queen Of The Jungle - spinning old school drum-

bass/jungle set!!!

***DJ RAP*** (Ministry of Sound / Propa / Impropa Talent, UK-LA)

Charissa Saverio, a.k.a. DJ RAP, has been the undisputed queen of

the turntables and voted the number one female DJ in the world for

the last 10 years! DJ Rap has infiltrated the music industry with

her arsenal of talent. She has established herself as the CEO of

her labels: Propa and Impropa Talent, developed her creative

direction as a full-fledged producer, and remains to be the

recording artist and DJ that everyone has come to love and love

dance to! She is also a classically trained pianist and song

writer, amongst many other talents! Rap has dominated such genres

as house and drum & bass. After waiting several years to be able to

re-record (not re-mix) the single, "Good To Be Alive - 2011", DJ

Rap was finally able to step into the studio to revive the track.

Originally, this single was released on the multi-platinum album

"Learning Curve", that was previously released on Sony Records. In

Summer 2011 the long awaited re-release of "Good to be Alive -

2011" launched! A new music video also accompanied the release. The

video captures the ever glamorous and beautiful DJ Rap, it is as if

she is ageless. Her voice is equally preserved and this is evident

in the newly recorded vocals heard on the track. "Good To Be

Alive", became known to us as an anthem following the original

release and to fans now and then, it still is. Rap has produced

music for play station, Wii, and 7 major movies. Examples of her

portfolio are evident in her work for Twix, Mission Impossible (Tom

Cruise), Isolation, Run Lola Run, Enough (J-lo), Rogue Trader (Ewan

McGregor) Multi-talented, accomplished, ambitious, and driven by

her passion to create and her love for music, DJ Rap is not a name

from music's past, it is the name of music now and an inspiration

to music's future.
