She’s been hand-picked to open for Frankie Knuckles, Diplo, Felix da Housecat, Peaches, Lady Miss Kier (Dee-lite), Derrick Carter, CSS, Chromeo, Stonebridge, Colette, Cyndi Lauper, and Larry Tee, as well as headlining Pride celebrations all over North America and holding down residencies at Canada’s most legendary nightclubs including Celebrities in Vancouver and The Barn in Toronto.

Since 2013, she has owned and operated Dialed-In DJs (DID), a female-fronted mobile DJ company specialising in weddings and corporate events. To date, DID has garnered sixty 5-star reviews on Google Business.

In addition to DJing, Betti is also a critically acclaimed MC and singer, having been 1/3 of the legendary electro-hip-hop group Stink Mitt. Recently, Betti has delved into producing music with her recent project #entertainment, and is delighted to have done an official remix of Peaches’ “Dick in the Air”.
