Sarasota , United States
DJ Peaches has been rocking the decks since she was barely toilet-trained, when she rifled through her parents vast and eclectic record collection and 8 tracks and started experimenting with the controls on their old walnut-veneered record player. She is nonetheless a completely self-taught DJ, with influences from many friends and fellow DJ's from high school. Buying all the necessary gear with money saved up from a part-time job as a stripper and learning by bringing a new piece of musical technology home, plugging it in, and pushing all the buttons until something happened. The first record she bought was a now-out-of-print EP of Menudo. She began playing at local bar in the small town of Nowheresville Venice Florida, getting her first break when the DJ called in sick. She soon blew up in Nowheresville and began playing in Sarasota, after she was discovered by Well-Connected Scenester of the BigCityPartyPromoter crew.
