> JESS TUCKER – AKA Miss Instigator ( Australia )
Originally from Tasmania, Australia this passionate female DJ has been playing since the end of 2007. With her background as an accomplished drummer, guitarist, and saxophonist, Jess, (aka Miss Instigator) quickly developed her turntable skills to be playing in venues within a month of learning how to play.When Miss Instigator started ’throwing beats down’ she was the only female DJ in her region and experienced a male dominating environment. However, with most of her friends being DJs she found it easier to get into the scene. This led to many national and international supports for DJs such as Kid Kenobi, MC Shureshock and Baby Gee. Jess became resident DJ within Bar 39 and was able to take the initiative and successfully organize some of her own events.
Jess has been living in Canada for the last 3 years and started performing again during Christmas 2010, as support DJ for Bass Kleph, Yolanda Be Cool, and Joseph Martin. She has played and assisted in organizing some outdoor events, such as Full Moon, Smooth Action, Canada Day, advanced Bass-sick training for the Party Animal and Bounce.
Jessica is known for her underground electro music and ability to ‘read the crowd.’ She is readily able to manipulate the dance floor by playing more than one genre in her sets. Her diverse playing style adds to the atmosphere. She is totally in control of the dance floor.
Miss Instigator’s favorite quote is “Music is the universal language, from.” As a traveling DJ, Jess is convinced that music can be enjoyed within any cultural context, world-wide.
