Over a 30-year career, the Manchester-based DJ has scaled the heights of dance music fame and hedonism.

DJ Paulette is one of the North of England Regional Committee members. She is also active in the union’s Network for Members Who Experience Racism, one of the MU’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion networks, and is a Power UP mentor for She Said So. She’s currently writing her first book, ‘Welcome to the Club’, for Manchester University Press.

Over a 30-year career, the Manchester-based DJ has scaled the heights of dance music fame and hedonism playing disco, house and techno to huge crowds and in cool underground basements. One of two women to have a residency at the Hacienda in its heyday, she went on to residencies at Heaven and Ministry of Sound, before successful stints in Paris and Ibiza.
