Beverly Skillz
Beverly Skillz From the depths of the dirty dirty Beverly Skillz has become a rising force in turntablism and the club scene across the south. She is a party rocker, club dj, and accomplished battle dj. From the first time she placed her fingers on fader in late 2004, she knew it wouldn't take long for her to become a force to be reckoned with. She entered her first battle at the Guitar Center in New Orleans in May of 2005 (just 7 months of experience behind her). She was up against five other guys in the prelims. And she blew them all away and took first place. In the finals she had some formidable competition and took third. Later that year, she jumped head on into the biggest dj competition in the world: DMC. She battled in the American Battleground in Birmingham, AL. She battled against twelve other djs and tied for third with Sol Kontrol (but the judges gave it to him- well deserved). Not expecting to place as high as she did, Beverly Skillz continued to perfect her cutz, composition, and bad ass juggles for 2006. In May of 2006 she competed in the Krackernuttz Pepsi Throwdown in Houston, Texas. She beat out three other djs to advance to the finals, yet again. In 2007 she competed in the Needle to the record battle in Atlanta, and advanced to the semi-final round. In 2009 she entered the first ever New Orleans DMC and placed 4th among 15 turntablists from across the nation. As usual she was the only female dj. Considering she is already advancing to the finals in all of her battles, it's only a matter of time before she becomes a nationally known name in dj battles...

But the battle scene is not the only forum she excels in. This girl can rock a party!! Currently a resident at one of the south's most notorious night club Club Ampersand, she blends hip hop, dubstep, indie dance, house, nu disco, electro and dancefloor classics for an unforgettable dancefloor experience. She has a very eclectic style that is suitable for just about any crowd. And with a unique touch of killer cutz, aggressive mixing, and unique composition, it's a party you'll won't soon forget! She has a unique touch for party rocking and has rocked some very memorable opening sets for DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff, MSTRKRFT, Steve Aoki and Samantha Ronson. She has also performed along side DJ Icey, Jen Lasher, DJ Micro, DJ Annalyze, Tittsworth, and hip hoppers such as Black Sheep, Afro-Ra, Inspectah Deck, Planet Asia, Josh Martinez, Sleep, Know One, The Able Chris, Impluss & Truth Universal just to name a few. In 2008 she did cuts for Disney's Imagination Movers and played with them at New Orleans' famous Jazz and Heritage Festival. In 2009 her scratching could be heard on the Disney Channel in the Imagination Mover's song "Mother in You," and on their cd "Juicebox Heros" distributed worldwide.

It's easy to see Beverly Skillz is becoming an unstoppable force. She is also a featured dj on the top female turntablist site: femaleswitfunk.com where she stands alongside other incredible ladies such as Shortee, Tyra from Saigon, Annalyze, & Killa Jewel just to name a few.
