DJ June started out at the Institute of Audio Research studying to become a professional studio engineer. After graduation, she began working as a buyer specializing in vinyl at downtown Brooklyn's legendary Beat Street Records and interning at a recording studio. At that time, DJ June was making beats which naturally lead to her becoming interested in DJing. Through her work at Beat Street, she consistently met major party and Hip Hop DJs and major label recording artists who would drop by to shop or sign at artist in-store events. The finishing touches in June's training came when DJ Scratch showed her how to read the crowd and other tricks of the trade, including the all-omportant advice on dealing with the music industry.
She has the experience, the knowledge, and the skills. From the recording studio to the club, she has and can do it all. With a ear to the streets and a ear for the perfect blend, it is little wonder DJ June is now being asked to DJ internationally.
