Known as Charlotte Horne in real life, DJ Lottie was among the first female DJs to make a real impact on the overdeveloped dance market in the U.K. She began her career during the early '90s at clubs in the northeast of England, but within a few short years was working the decks at top venues in that Mecca of dance, London. Despite the big smoke's male-dominated DJ scene, Lottie quickly jumped into the leading pack of record spinners -- and her efforts were rewarded in 2000 when she grabbed Muzik magazine's prestigious Best New DJ Award. She has since played at top clubs the world over; from Australia to the infamous Spanish party Island of Ibiza. Though a fan of U.S. hip-hop as a teenager, Lottie has developed a reputation for playing acid and tech-house sets with plenty of vocals. Her very first release was the mix compilation 7 Live LOTTIE (1999) which included such underground house cuts as H-Foundation's "Hear Dis Sound," the Method Men's "Disko Biscuit," DJ Sneak's "The Rhythm Slave."
