Welcome to Voices by Black Artist Database; a mixed media series of interviews with talented Black artists and music industry members, where we champion the voices of Black people within the global electronic music sphere.

Next up on the series is none other than Smokin’ Jo; killer DJ, taste-making producer, and one of the inspirations of a generation of female DJs, as well as the only female winner of DJ Mag’s DJ Of The Year award. In this hour Jo opens up to B.A.D. founder NIKS about the life around the lifestyle of a touring DJ, in a vulnerable yet uplifting conversation.


This conversation was recorded on 13th October 2021, and published 21st October 2021.

Many thanks to Usher Lavelle for his work on editing the podcasts (Twitter/IG: @usherlavelle), and Milo Craig for the jingle (IG: @milocraig).
