It’s no secret the DJ industry is typically seen as an all boys’ club. However, that has not stopped DJ Olivia Dope from dominating the scene. A former dancer, Olivia has shared the dancefloor with artists such as Shaggy, Mac Miller and Chris Brown, so it’s no surprise she knows how to capture special moments through the blend of well-selected tracks.
Having spun sets for several venues such as Raven and GoldBar, DJ Olivia Dope was most recently seen radiating her #BlackGirlMagic and setting the mood at the 2016 WEEN Awards.
So how does Olivia stand out in a sea full of talented DJs? Of course, by using her instincts to influence the mood of any atmosphere and showing her audience how to live in the moment. In an interview with Team Beautiful, Olivia said, “The same reactions and the same feelings that I get when I hear certain songs, I love seeing those reactions from other people and they give you that look. There’s always that look.”
Thanks to the Brooklyn native’s unique approach to DJing, she has wooed clients like Jennifer Hudson, Rita Ora, ESSENCE Magazine, celebrity designers The Blonds, Lil’ Kim, Angela Simmons, Jones Magazine and Russell Simmons’ RUSH Philanthropic Arts Foundation, as well as fashion brands like New York & Company, LVL XIII Brands and Blood & Honey.
