DJ Miss Nine sent KL boys into headspin
By Steven Patrick
In the clubbing world, there are some pretty faces who fancy making out with the DJ and there are plenty more who fancy making it as a DJ.
Some will solicit fame through infamy, like Paris Hilton who tried being a DJ in Sao Paolo, Brazil recently and was resolutely booed off the decks. And others who will work hard to earn credibility, like Miss Nine.
DJ Miss Nine is model (good start) turned DJ (okay) turned sidekick to the likes of John Digweed, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren and James Zabiela—you go, girl!
She was the first female DJ to mix for Yoshitoshi Recordings, operated by big-room house music maestros Deep Dish, and her CD Yoshitoshi Ibiza: Mixed By Miss Nine hit No.1 on the iTunes chart in 2006.
She hosts her own radio show, Nine Sessions, on more than 30 stations worldwide. And she's signed to Elite modelling agency.
Her story began when she was still Kristin Schrot and she had a crazy idea: let's have a crack at being a DJ. "So I got some vinyl records and I started to mix, and after three months my friends arranged a gig for me in Amsterdam, and here I am," said the sexy German on the eve of her one night only show at KL's club Vertigo last week (on The Gardens rooftop in Mid Valley City).
In Amsterdam, Miss Nine became the resident DJ at the Motion parties, playing Hi-NRG grooves that were heavy on the vocals.
She believes hard work, persistence and a passion for music are what got her to where she is. A catchy name helps, too. She chose Miss Nine because her nickname was Nina and she was born on 9th March.
She also hopes to be mentioned in the same breath as her heroes Tiesto and Armin van Buuren one day. "I want to see how far I can get as a woman in a male dominated world," she told Daily Chilli. "In the beginning, it's hard to get respect. No one takes you seriously. But once you prove you've got skills, you're okay."
