Brooklyn native, DJ Juice E, is known for her uncanny ability to whip the crowd into a frenzy while simultaneously reminding party goers why they ever loved music in the first place. With roots in NYC's independent Hip Hop scene of the 1990s, Juice E's intense passion for all music of the African Diaspora has been the focus of over a decade's worth of successful parties and mixtapes that have come to define her heavy hitting sound. Party goers are delighted to be taken on a journey that could encompass everything from Funk and Soul, to Hip Hop, Reggae, Soca, House, Disco, Salsa, Merengue, and Dance Classics from the 1960s all the way to current top 40.

DJ Juice E first made a name for herself in the early 2000s when she started Free Fall, a party dedicated to Hip Hop and Dance Classics at Philadelphia's Silk City lounge. Upon returning to New York in 2006, Juice E took the initiative to break away from her roots to create Sucia (Dirty Girl), a party devoted to the hardcore Salsa and Boogaloo of the 1960s and 70s. With the help of co-founder Tony Cortez (Architects and Demolition Men), and artist Kimberly "Kupi" Kuprijanow, (KupiArt Graphic Design) Sucia became a wildly popular weeknight event that featured live musicians, burlesque dancers, costume themes, and an ever-present projection of cheesy 1970s pornographic films.

In the summer of 2006, Juice E was offered a highly coveted residency at Brooklyn hot spot Habana Outpost. There, Juice E's crowd pleasing musical explorations led to a long term relationship that fostered several parties in Habana's "Lowpost", as well as a series of acclaimed mixtapes created exclusively for Habana Outpost clientele. During this time, Juice E also played many other events with well-known DJ's such as DJ Enuff, Tony Touch, Rich Medina, and legendary DJ Evil Dee. She has also provided sounds for the long-running Words at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, and has been a featured DJ for She's So Fresh, The Gathering (Philadelphia), and WBAI's annual Hip Hop Takeover.

As part of her own struggles as a cervical cancer survivor, Juice E has become a dedicated advocate of cancer awareness. As such, she has served as resident DJ and spokeswoman for organizations such as I'm Too Young For This, and Tamika & Friends. Currently, Juice E maintains residencies at several venues in New York including Bembe, Soda Bar, and Cibar Lounge. Check her out on Facebook for a chance to catch her spin live.
