Starting her career out as a deep house DJ and playing the opening set for the URBAN parties and the occassional gig at Capital Music Cafe (thank you Jorge!)

She has played at most in most of Jo'burgs funky venues including Groove Bar; Sudada; Evolution and for a Splash after party (to name but a few). She has also appeared as a headliner at Club Delux in Mozambique as well as rocking Durban crowds at Barcode and Tilt and joining the EMP crew for the first time a the BAT entre.

She appears regulary at all of Groove Bars big parties and has been listed with most of South Africas top funky names

Amanda currently enjoys a residency at Pretorias premier dance and straight friendly gay club, Legends.You can catch her every Saturday night from 23:00 m- 01:00 strutting her stuff with legendary DJ's such as Sista C and Stuart H. She also appears for their famous monthly D&G nights.

She enjoys a residency at ESP for their Sunday House Sessions. Rocking the horseshoe bar from midday to 14:00, she has slowly introduced her own flavour of vocal funk and created a special vibe on a Sunday. Her ESP residency has afforded her to appear at the same parties with big names such as Brian Cross, Sebastian Ingrosso, Armin Van Buuren and Lisa Lashes.

You can also catch Amanda on the airwaves as she brings her version of funk to 5FM's Deck-a-licious slot on Zuraida Jardines show on a Friday and Dicksy's show on a Saturday. This show has been vital to the development of Amandas sound and skills and with the guidance of Nigel from USM records (organiser of Deck-a-licious) she has developed into one of the up-and-coming of todays funksters.

Amanda is a co-owner of @Trax records in Rosebank (Joburg). For bookings contact

the rudster

One of the newest editions to the Urban family, The Rudster (pronounced rood-ste) is a cool character. Always there to lend a ear to other jabbering punters (Amanda), and to make sure that the beer keeps flowing, hence the nick name ‘Drinky’. The Rudster does not limit himself to any single style of music, rather expect a mixed bag to get your booty shaking!
