It has been 20 years since she first stood behind the turntables, and Rebekah has established herself as one of the leading exponents of techno currently operating on the global circuit. Her love affair with harder sounds stretches back to the legendary Que Club in her hometown of Birmingham. That's where she was introduced to music by the likes of Dave Clarke, Derrick Carter, Richie Hawtin and Billy Nasty. The fact she now shares billing with artists of this caliber is testament not only to her talent but how her music has been received by the techno community.
