Read about Supa Dupa Fly's founder
In March 2017, Emily secured a DJ residency on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Emily Rawson is one of the UK’s most in demand female DJs and promoters. Her club night, Supa Dupa Fly, is unquestionably the biggest Hiphop & RnB night in the UK and her all female brand, Rock The Belles, is pushing gender boundaries in music by championing female DJ talent.
Phenomenally popular with a crowd, Emily DJ’s for global brands from Chanel to Nike & Soho House, alongside hosting and playing for celebrities including the Kardashians, Kanye West, Rita Ora and Jazzy Jeff. She also plays festivals including Lovebox The Great Escape & Fresh Island, as well as being a regular contributor on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
In 2015 Emily was awarded Marie Claire’s ‘Women At The Top’ award, an accolade celebrating ten of the most inspirational innovative game-changers who shaped the year with their work.
Fiercely ambitious and supportive of women, Emily’s Rock The Belles collective brings together the hottest female DJs, bands & creatives for a genre-defying celebration of the females who are making their mark in music. Emily works as a mentor to many women in the music industry and regularly speaks at panel events, as well as often donating a proportion of event profits to her chosen charity Action Aid.
Not content with two huge club brands and personal recognition for her DJ and mentor work, June 2016 saw entrepreneurial Emily launching Supa Dupa Fly’s very own festival in Santorini; four days & nights of Sun, Sand & Supa Dupa Fly!
