In Focus: Kristin Schrot DJ Miss Nine
Girl Power at its best!
In the heavily male dominated DJ market, it is rare to find a female DJ who can create a huge impact on the scene in a short amount of time. Miss Nine has not only been able to outshine and make her presence known in such a world, but she has done so all within five years of picking up a record. With her eclectic taste in music, ranging from energetic grooves with plenty of vocals to a deeper, progressive sound, Miss Nine is sure to turn heads and move feet any where she performs.
Kristin Schrot began her career, not as a DJ, but as a model. At 16, she made it to the finals of one of the largest modeling pageants in Germany, and soon after secured a worldwide contract with Elite Model Management. Longing for more, her passion for music led Kristin to move to Amsterdam where she dubbed herself Miss Nine and began pursuing a career in the electronic industry.
Only a few months after touching the decks for the first time, she became a resident DJ at the locally legendary Motion parties where she evolved as an artist and DJ while playing alongside masters such as John Digweed, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren, and James Zabiela. In 2003 she began touring abroad and even made an appearance as the youngest artist at the 10th edition of Dance Valley.
At the end of 2005, Miss Nine was asked by Grammy Award winning DJ duo Deep Dish to join Bullitt Bookings, the reputable agency of A-list DJs such as Deep Dish, Nic Fanciulli, and Danny Howells. This merger has allowed Miss Nine to explode onto the forefront of the DJ scene. Miss Nine performs around the world, spinning at clubs such as Pacha in Ibiza, Space in Miami, Avalon in LA, Mansion in New York, Warung in Brazil, and Ministry of Sound in London, with her fan base multiplying by the minute..
