Chicago born, now based in San Diego, CA.

  

BIO:

Hailing from Chicago and recently relocated to San Diego, music powerhouse Diskokitty, or Margot Rudy, has seen it and done it all. This flexible DJ has the ability to take on any gig, big or small. The key word is fun. She wants to have fun and wants you to have fun with her. No matter the genre, she will make you move, *chair dancing is acceptable but not encouraged*. She has over 20 years of experience traveling to DJ underground and corporate events. She has DJed all over the United States, and in Mexico and Canada. Margot has supported some of the world’s most legendary House and Drum and Bass DJs.

Including over a decade’s worth of piano lessons, Diskokitty has had the blessing of being exposed to an amazing amount of music of all genres. As an open format DJ she leans toward Hip hop, pop, and funk, and as a underground she leans toward chicago-style tech-house and old-school drum and bass. No medium is a challenge and she is able to perform on whatever is set out in front of her, even if it’s a crate of your own records or a roulette of random USB’s. She will take over the dance floor. Just show her where the set up is and she will play a set for you that you will never forget.

Her forté is working with finicky crowds and keeping the bodies moving. Margot has a deep passion for music and it is her full time job. She scours the internet and record stores searching for the perfect songs to cultivate your event, playlists, and her sound. Currently she is also working in the studio on her own productions and remixes. If you need a DJ (and now producer) that will connect with your crowd and dance with you, then Diskokitty is the lady to call on, as she is the “ultimate selector” who can handle any situation.

Quotes from former clients:

I was worried that my guests wouldn’t break out if their comfort zone to dance in public. Margot was able to read the vibe and had the dance floor packed literally all night. Her talent, professionalism, and love for her craft made for a great experience. One of the best decisions I made for my wedding!” Kathleen Eva

She kept the party dancing all night at our wedding reception! She’s 🔥🔥🔥!!! I highly recommend her services. She’s prompt, attentive to detail, and a great mc. She even played the perfect tunes as we paused for late night fireworks.” Haley Panka

“She is without a doubt one of the most experienced, personable and well-rounded DJs on our roster and we are elated to have her on this side of the continent!!” Nate Manic- DJ/Producer Business Owner

I’m working!

Oddly enough it didn’t take me long to get some work here in San Diego. I was born a performer, playing piano recitals since I was 5 years old. If I am not playing music for people I feel physical and mental pain.

So what am I doing? Currently DJing a few dinner shifts at STK San Diego. I’m playing upbeat favorites as an open format dj.

I love working on nice gear

As you can see it’s not too shabby. I hope I get to keep the gig, but you know how this industry works. So far I like it a lot. I get to play music I like and enjoy the atmosphere. Crazily enough this is the first time I’ve had direct deposit in over a decade.

got tipped with no requests

I know the guests are at least happy. My first weekend I got tipped twice with gentlemen throwing money on my console without asking for requests. Being 43, I don’t see it being because I’m a hot a piece of ass and truly attribute it to my having a good vibe.

I work there this Friday and fly out to San Francisco for a private gig. It’s my first out of town gig in years. Momming can bring up lots of guilt and insecurities that you didn’t have before but I’m looking forward to getting out of town. I wish I would have planned better to stay longer and go out but oh well. 20 hours in San Francisco should be interesting.

I’ll definitely keep you posted!

Good Morning!

My first post on this site! So many exciting things are right around the corner. We are currently in limbo as I transfer from Chicago to San Diego. I’ve taken a break from gigging to focus on production. My next gig is for my “crew” Proper, a drum and bass weekly that we hold at Debonair Social Club. We are experimenting with April 3 and throwing all our USBs in a hat and taking a random one and playing whatever is on it. It shoudl be fun! https://www.facebook.com/properchicagodrumandbass/

Currently I am working on my own projects. I have entered a contest with the Junglist Network in the UK. Currently I’m in Round 1 where they judge the mix themselves. Next round (if I make it) they will count the number of listens on a different mix you upload. I will need the help of my fans. I do not do pay for play services and know this is rampant on social media. I’d like to win the contest on my own talents, I hope that the other contenders feel the same. If not, on to the next venture. Until then, I am invested in this contest because drum and bass is a passion of mine and for some reason, of all the genres I DJ, Drum and Bass comes most naturally to me. I don’t have to think about much when I’m beat matching. It’s really weird bc it’s not the case when I’m doing any other genre. I really think with Drum and Bass I could go very far if I tried….which I didn’t really before. So my new hustle is contests bc as stated, paying for followers isn’t my steelo.

Not a bad way to wake up. My entry into the contest is 2nd in the world in Jump Up DNB.
