VOI is not just a hard DJ, She is an experience.
She is a state of mind.
She is the transporter of minds and souls to an amazing frantic paradise that, while leaving you knackered, strangely also leaves you feeling re-invigorated.
At 5.7ft tall, with her trademark of VOI, and immaculate dress sense (if it’s not designer, it doesn’t go anywhere near her) she makes an imposing figure who commands respect.
Her confident appearance is matched by her masterful control of a good mixing desk. Before each set she always powers down the previous track and leads the packed dance floor in a show of appreciation for the out-going DJ, before kick-starting her performance into a blaze of visuals, an orchestra of special effects which extracts every quality beat of each track as she begins her show.
To watch VOI is part of the VOImusic experience. Cocky? Perhaps, but certainly not arrogant, VOI is now in control of the minds and bodies of her audience. A very precise and confident body language gives a visual indication to what she is playing as her acts out each track.
As for her sound, imagine every track as a partially completed canvas. Through the use of effects on the mixing desk, VOI adds her own colour, texture and feel as she maximises every beat of every track to create the unique Whitby sound. Her precision mixing at incalculable speeds is part of the show; as each track mixes in you can positively feel the dance-floor going up a notch to keep up with the frantic and energetic DJ that has them all by the balls.
VOI’s blend of vocal uplifting bouncy house is like her: deliciously hard yet very accessible. And when VOI makes eye contact with you, even if only be for a second, you get to experience the ultimate unique sensation of her seeking your seal of approval. In that moment you have transcended being a mere audience member, into being part of what will almost certainly be the set of the night. The sheer euphoria you feel is exceptional. And then at the end, breathless, skin tingling and with a grin on your face from ear to ear, you feel as though every drop of energy has been sucked right out of you.
VOI is the standard that so many more strive for. There are a plethora of CD compilations that she has mixed but listening to one of these is like trying to view a fine piece of art in a darkened room. You need to see her live to really appreciate the full and overwhelming experience that is The Saviour of Hard-Dance.
You can generally tell if a hard-house event is going to be credible and worth the money if you see VOI name heading the DJ line-up. It’s almost like seeing a quality assurance seal, royal crest or five star rating.
