Moxie is many things: a Londoner born and bred, raised on raving and records; a seasoned DJ, playing big-room clubs and sweatbox basements worldwide; a charming radio host, as at home on national FM as regional stations and independent start-ups. It’s this balancing act between the underground and the mainstream that’s seen her become one of the UK’s hottest DJs, and is shaping 2015 up to be her strongest year yet.
Starting out covering for Sinden’s Kiss FM show in 2010, Moxie began hosting on pirate radio station Rinse and regularly DJing on the London club circuit. Her DJing experiences have been as broad and ambitious as her tastes. As well as playing flagship dubstep club night DMZ at Brixton’s Mass (and remaining the only woman to do so twice), Moxie’s selections of house, techno, disco, hip-hop and garage have seen her reach such wide and varying audiences that she became so in demand, the legendary super-club fabric invited her to play their Room One no less than six times in 2014.
Moxie may be at home in the club, but she also shines on the airwaves. After being selected for BBC Radio 1’s ‘In New DJs We Trust’ 2013 series, 2014 saw her graduate to dance music’s upper ranks by covering for DJ Heidi’s Residency show, and going onto host her own Residency slot the same year. Throughout this mainstream exposure, though, she’s remained loyal to her independent roots. After landing her own show on east London’s NTS Radio in 2011, she’s been hosting the same slot ever since and has been heavily involved in the station’s development.
