Prudence Beatport


Already being compared to the likes of Norman Jay, Prudence’s uplifting and funky style of house music is causing a stir wherever she plays. Prudence grew up immersing herself in soul, funk, disco, new jack swing and early hardcore spending most of her time at school listening to her music and going to raves instead of doing her homework. An avid clubber since the tender age of fourteen, it was a natural progression to take to the decks and share her love for dance music.

Originally from Cambridge, Prudence started DJing whilst at University in Birmingham and after just a couple of weeks of getting to know the decks she was already playing at parties and holding events at various clubs and bars in the city.

She graduated in 2002 and moved straight to London where she immediately fell into the scene writing for Mixmag, M8 and International DJ magazine and traveled around the country visiting clubs and writing reviews. She has been lucky enough to meet and interview many of the DJs that inspire her, Louie Vega, Norman Jay, Carl Cox, Pete Tong, Kenny Hawkes to name a few, making many friends along the way.

Prudence began to promote and DJ at her own night Funk Shy Nude at The Chapel Bar in Islington, London which was a great success and now living in Cambridge hopes to continue its success at one of the great venues in the city. Since moving to Cambridge six months ago, Prudence has secured two residencies at the Light Bar and Po Na Na with forthcoming events at the Fez Club as well.

Now Prudence is about to host her own radio show on London station Unknown FM and will be promoting for one of the big organizers in London, as well as her various DJ nights, writing for magazines, music photography, radio and TV work. Will this girl ever get to eat or sleep? It’s her hard work, positivity and sheer determination that makes her stand out from the rest and of course her unique passion for music and people, and natural ability to know good music!
