“I started the Female DJ Reggae Relay in 2016 to provide a welcoming space for women to play,” says founder, DJ and broadcaster Debbie Golt of Outerglobe. “The initial project died over the COVID-19 lockdown, but Miss Feelgood (Shirley Slattery) and I decided to re-launch it in 2021 as Vinyl Sisters, Upstairs at the Ritzy in Brixton.”
Each month, Vinyl Sisters invites four guest selectors to play for 30 minutes each, with opening and closing sets by Shirley and Debbie. Experience isn’t necessary as training is offered. All that is required to perform is a great vinyl collection and a genuine love of the music.
