Lipstick Disco is my brainchild, call me ‘The Director’, ‘Chief Editor’, ‘Head Honcho’ or whatever you feel like. I started Lipstick Disco to create a platform for fellow female DJ’s and other girls working in music, to give us a musical voice. Read my story HERE on how I first started out. First and foremost I’m a DJ and vocalist myself, here’s a little background on me…

DJ, Vocalist, producer, purveyor of musical delights and prowess of the night, with over 10 years’ experience under her belt, it’s fair to say Michelle Manetti is a jack of all trades master of many. Her love of old skool crosses from obsession to perversion and back again and can be clearly heard in her music.

Michelle Manetti first came to notoriety as vocalist and front woman for Nu Disco-Electronica outfit ‘The Off Key Hat’ whose releases on Andy Blakes vinyl-only label ‘Dissident’ and Yam Who’s ‘ISM’ that teamed them up with remixers such as Ashley Beedle, Daniel Baldelli and Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy elevated the band to cult status. Michelle has also worked as a vocalist, both live and in the studio with the likes of Serge Santiago (Waze & Odyssey) Tom Neville, Fonzarelli, Joey Negro, Pete Gooding and Prok and Fitch to name but a few. Recent releases include EP’s on Brazil’s Scandalo Music and Hamburg based Soso.

As well as a vocalist, Michelle Manetti is an accomplished DJ in her own right and has been gracing the decks for over 10 years. From London to Brighton, Ibiza to Australia, she has DJ’d and performed at many a club around the world. Originally taking to the decks in Brighton, she relocated to East London in 2007 and has gained a whole stream of residencies and guest slots at venues such as; XOYO, Pacha, Egg, Plan B, Ministry of Sound, Dalston Superstore, Dance Tunnel, Queen of Hoxton, East Bloc, Cargo, The Dolphin, Visions, Moustache Bar and The Joiners Arms among many. Recent sets have seen her play alongside the likes of Duke Dumont, Waze & Odyssey, The Magician, Lee Foss, Russ Yallop, Martin Ikin, Dimitri From Paris, Rob Made, Eli & Fur, Jonas Rathsman, JD Samson, Guy Williams and Rory Phillips.

Having experimented with a variety of genres over the years, she has refined the sounds of her DJ sets and can be heard playing a blissful blend of Tech and Acid House, Deep and Jackin House & Bass with Cosmic and Nu Disco.
