Biography

United Kingdom

DJ Rap is a pseudonym of UK / producer / DJ Charissa Saverio.

Over a 15-year career, she has moved between various genres / styles (within the electronic spectrum), simultaneously pushing the limits of rock & pop. The first lady of , her music has infiltrated club systems & car stereos worldwide, with her numerous forays into video game / motion picture soundtracks solidifying her pedigree, as one dance musicʼs most successful & prolific artists.

With three studio albums, 75 mix compilations and over 2,000,000 in cumulative worldwide sales to her name, what makes you think sheʼd stop now?

In May 2010, DJ Rap will release Synthesis (Ministry of Sound), a brand new studio album that weaves together a full compliment of synthetic textures and organic moods, and paints a lucid picture of her journey as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Powerful, melodic and immaculately produced, Synthesis is a return to the hybridization of styles she brought forward on Learning Curve (Sony), her 1999 debut that had magazines like Rolling Stone and Ray Gun heralding her arrival into the mainstream. The albumʼs first single, “Give It All Away,” will be released November 2009.

“This goes deeper than just a dance record,” says Rap, inspired by a wide range of artists, from Pink Floyd to Mutemath. “This album is a soundtrack to my life and what Iʼve been going through.”

Though itʼs been three years in the making, Synthesis represents merely one facet of Rapʼs diversified portfolio.
