Miss Jools launched her career in the mid 90's with a series of gigs around London, followed by a coveted spot for the underground radio station Girls Fm. Through her twice weekly shows, she was able to freely explore the breadth of her musical tastes with handpicked vinyl selections inspired by a range of Deep House through to Techno Pioneers. Alongside Dj and Radio commitments, Jools also held down the position of Electronic music buyer and Vinyl seller at one of London's longest standing record stores BM-Soho Records (formerly known as Black Market) for ten years.
Jools was further drawn into the spotlight in 2002 after co-founding and promoting London's hugely successful sunday night affair Clandestino. A party that is still very much remembered fondly today. Renowned for its intersection of sophisticated music lovers and underground House and Techno sounds, Jools booked guest DJ's like Loco Dice, Anja Schneider, Dink, Chloe, and Clive Henry over its seven year residency at The End club. Drawing on the influences of Deep House, Minimal and Techno Miss Jools turned to production and Sleeper Thief was born. A successful collaboration with Audiofly's Antony Middleton and Luca Saporito. With their one-two punch of 'Chasing You' and Cenotes Ep for Mobilee Records, Sleeper Thief's combination of Electro and deep, aqueous minimal vibes gained immediate support from influential names in the scene. She then gathered further momentum in 2008 deciding to relocate to Berlin and thus became part of the Mobilee DJ agency until 2015. Delivering her first solo EP for Mobilee "La Luna", the woody percussion, intricate melodies and tough floor-focused shuffle of La Luna and Que Me Levante confirmed her as a diverse talent, both in the DJ booth and in the studio. Alongside releases for labels like Catwash, Supernature, Hypertone, Moodmusic, Tzinah, Lowroom Recordings to name a few Miss Jools thrived within the Mobilee connection, going on in 2009 to compile and mix the third installment of their venerated compilation 'Back to Back series.
In 2011 Jools joined forces with Julie Marghilano, founder of the Berlin based parties Sol Asylum to become the resident DJ where she still resides. In 2013 Jools began a collaboration with Julie to help run her newly born Sol Asylum record label. An exciting family of new emerging producers, visual graphic designers that inspire each other and create original and unusual ideas fusing music and visual art together. Jools also released on the successful vinyl imprint for the VA in 2014, alongside respected fellow artist's Patrice Meiner and Dana Ruh.
With various solo projects in the pipeline and another track to be released on Sol Asylum in the summer of 2016, alongside her constant DJ schedule taking her around the globe 2016 looks set to be yet another inspiring productive and successful year for Jools.
