Profile: DJ Eleonora

Tue 20.05.2008

The entrepreneurial and multi-talented DJ Eleonora Cutaia may be best known for her Underground Soul mixes on Expansion and Irma Records, but her sound stretches much further than one genre – as DJsounds found out when we tracked down the lady herself during Miami WMC. Born in Italy but currently living in London, Eleonora is an up-and-coming eclectic selector who enjoys being involved in many different aspects of the music/media business, and even features as a character in The Trouble with Katie Rogers comic strip. From DJing to setting up her own label, Stilnovo Music, and promotions company, AheadPR, Eleonora balances her activities for optimum output whilst traveling around the world to spread the musical word. Be it deep house or techy electronica, she has DJ’d at a wide range of venues such as Jazz Café, Turnmills and Fabric, where she was hand picked to perform by (and alongside) US jock King Britt. Then there have been the exclusive VIP functions, where Eleonora has had the pleasure of spinning to top officials and celebrities alike. Back in her native Italy, meanwhile, she DJs for the dance network Radio M2o, on the Soundzrise show. This video clip sees DJsounds hooking up with Eleonora both on the beach for an interview and later at the lush Art of Seduction night at Hotel Victor, Miami. Here she rocked the room, starring on a line-up that included King Britt, Vikter Duplaix and DJ Rashida. Words: LRC
