DJ Hypes climb to fame and success has been a long and hard one. It all started when he was fourteen and still at school with classmates such as Smiley from "Shut Up And Dance". They had one deck and built their own speaker boxes.
His music career started in 1989 when he would play Hip Hop and his friend would play Reggae on a pirate station in London.

DJ Rap or Charissa Saverio as she is known to her friends, is a DJ from Walthamstow, E17 (although she insists that she does not know East 17 the group).
She is known as DJ Rap because of the breakbeats she original played, her love of Hip-Hop and the fact that the promoters would not know that she was female.
