Henna made her entrance onto the Brighton DJ scene in 2017. Since then she has won over various residencies all over the city as a highly established DJ, including a weekly resident slot spinning at one of Coalition’s most renowned nights.
Henna’s style focuses on hip-hop, R&B, neo-soul and future sounds, accompanied by an unmistakable soft spot for the nineties. Growing up inspired by her parents’ love of R&B, Motown and Soul classics (think Sade, Prince and Toni Braxton) , this is a strong vein that remains in her taste, highlighted by the warm undertones of which you can truly feel in her sets. Introduced to East Coast hip-hop in her teens, the genre as a whole quickly became a genuine love in her life, which only continued to grow as she delved deeper into the style to form the impressive spectrum of music she loves today.
As a female DJ, Henna also believes in the significance of handing the spotlight to strong female artists, such as Erykah Badu, Kali Uchis and Solange. Combining styles from past and present, Henna makes unforgettable musical choices for sets that are vibrant and powerful. Her musical taste is vast and always fresh, therefore she is able to create the perfect mood or setting for any event, whether that’s a dynamic night in a packed-out club or a set oozing slow jams in a chilled-out bar.
Not only does she throw the best party in Brighton, Henna has also worked with acclaimed brands such as Topshop/Topman for specially curated in-store DJ sets. You can also catch her show on Platform B Radio, where she shares compelling mixes packed with her favourite flavours of the moment.
