DJ Rap or Charissa Saverio as she is
known to her friends, is a DJ from Walthamstow, E17 (although
she insists that she does not know East 17 the group).
She is known as DJ Rap because of the breakbeats she original
played, her love of Hip-Hop and the fact that the promoters
would not know that she was female. She first got into Hip-Hop
because she liked the rhythms, she then moved to hardcore
because "The rhythms got faster".
Before she was a DJ she used to "Rave". She says
she doesn't believe in going to work. She was a trainee Articled
Clerk but she prefered raving so she jacked her job in. (Ok
for some init!!!)
Her first record project was "Ambience" by The
Adored about seven years ago. The next was "Coma Coma"
by Raw Bass on Jumpin' N' Pumpin'. Also "Divine Rhythm"
and then "Vertigo" & "Jeopardy" on
Suburban Base both made with the producer known as Aston.
Under the different name of Engineers Without Fears, Rap &
Aston released the massive tune "Spiritual Aura"
on Dee Jay Recordings. She then went on to set up her own
label Proper Talent. The first release on this new label was
"Digable Bass/Get Under". Other releases since have
included the "Spiritual Aura Remix" by Ray Keith
and "Intelligent Woman" feat. Outlaw Candy.
