DJ Paulette self-penned book launch UK tour

As one of Haçienda’s pioneering female DJs, DJ Paulette has soared to the heights of the music industry. Her electrifying performances have captivated audiences, leaving an indelible mark on dance music history. 

Welcome To The Club, her debut book, is the first historical account of the electronic dance scene written by a black woman DJ in which Paulette shares the highs, lows and love of a life lived through music. She makes keen and witty observations about the evolution of the industry, shining a light on and celebrating the work of her peers. These powerful yet unsung and often invisible sheroes have shaped the industry in their way, making a vital, ongoing and progressive contribution to the culture and within this male-dominated creative space.

In this, her self-penned debut, DJ Paulette offers a candid and compelling account from the unique perspective of a Black woman navigating a fun and glamorous world that is also riddled with exclusion, misogyny, racism, and classism. She combines memoir, interviews, self-help, education, history, a sense of purpose and her love of music with humour, and brutal honesty. Part biography, part call to action:  Welcome To The Club is a remarkable story and manifesto for our times. 

DJ Paulette celebrates the launch of this book with two special events. 

The first is on Jan 25th (at HOME in Manchester) in conversation with fellow DJ, label head and BBC Radio 6 host Jamz Supernova, who was recently bestowed the Music Champion award at Music Week’s Women In Music Awards 2023.
