Tula's DJ career began in the early hours of Sunday
mornings back in the early 90's when she hosted shows
on pirate radio stations. She is now one of Brighton's
most respected and talented DJs, resident at Brighton's
most renowned underground club nite; Stompa Phunk, plays
at clubs all over the world and has built up a reputation
for playing funked' up jackin' house sets.
Stompa Phunk has been continually tipped as one to
watch by the UK dance press (Nominated for 'Best Small
Club' in the Muzik Awards in 2002), and by high profile
DJs such as Lottie and Ralph Lawson. Or as Jockey Slut
put it: "Stompa Phunk - here to prove this house music
thing's still got legs." Now residing at Brighton's
newest club; Audio, Stompa Phunk continues to throw
block rockin' house parties with guests such as Derrick
Carter, 20:20 Sound System, Ivan Smagghe and Heather.
Away from Brighton, Tula has been a regular guest DJ
at clubs across the UK including:
Back To Basics, Sundaysonic, Boutique (Brighton & London),
Missdemenours, Chibuku Shake Shake, Gallery/Roach @ Turnmills,
Tribalism and Rulin at MoS, Type @ The Cross, Pacha, Passion,
The End, 333 and Homelands 2001.
Internationally Tula has been working abroad for the
past 5 years, playing in Slovenia, South Africa, Kiev,
Ireland, France, Ibiza, Malta, Switzerland, Spain and
Brazil where she played to 80,000 people at their first
ever Dance Parade in 2003. So far this year Tula has
been doing a tour in Russia, playing at Moscow's renowned
club Propaganda, went over to Israel to play Tel Aviv's
Freshfruit night and is touring with MTV over the summer
as part of their Puma 4-Some Tour in France, Spain,
Austria, Holland and Germany.
Moving on from her pirate radio days, Tula has hosted
shows for local Brighton station Juice 107.2, and went
on to host her own 'Housekeepin' show on Ministry Radio
from 2002-2004. Has been interviewed on Radio 1 by Lottie,
was a guest DJ on Annie Nightengales's show and in November
2003 Tula made her Essential Mix debut, with her set
from Stompa Phunk broadcast live on Radio 1.
Moving into the world of record production, Tula's
first production, a Re-Edit of Artificial Funk track
- 'Together ' was released on Skint Records in March
2003. Went down very well with the dance press, and
the single even scraped it's way into the Top 40.
DJ Magazine: "Stompa Phunk's talented DJ Tula breaks
her production cherry with a monster-breakdowned, tech-stomper
of a re-edit."
Mixmag "Tula tightens up the rest of the vocals to
make this an absolute thumper."
DMC Update "She's blown everyone else out of the water,
adding a cute girly vocal over the slammin' infectious
rhythms." Tula has also just completed her first track,
'I Jus' due for release on Stompa Phunk Music in 2004.
