Roo is the alias of Rachael Finch who is co-founder of the music magazine Halcyon Wax and the women and non-binary collective Shifting Spheres – where she runs DJ workshops and a label in Manchester in order to promote inclusivity.

Roo injects plenty of soul, groove and depth into her sets. This can be felt through her selection across a multitude of genres from deep house to dreamy, otherwordly electro, to cosmic nu-jazz and balearic melodies, as well as broken beat, acid and disco. Her selections have seen her support the likes of Carista, Special Request and Al Zanders, appear on Rinse France, BBC West Midlands and Melodic Distraction and play at Lakota Bristol, The Hare and Hounds in Birmingham and Deadwax Digbeth to name a few.
