Some Secrets Aren't Meant To Be Kept.
Having spun records for the likes of The Toronto Raptors, LeBron James, Ludacris, Drake, Rachel Roy and brands such as Sony Style, Fuze, and the LVMH group – Moët & Chandon and Hennessy, DJ Lissa Monét has captivated tastemakers, party goers and music lovers with ego-free talent that delivers the right music and vibe to events with modesty and intelligence.
Lissa has been influenced by such legends as Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, Aaliyah, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Hall & Oates mixed, as well as music from her caribbean upbringing and a passion for reading album liner notes. In her mid-teens, Lissa jumped feet first into the business, providing information to other industry colleagues in hopes of cultivating new partnerships and opportunities. Utitilzing social networks sites, Lissa discovered new artists and created mini mixtapes and her personal blog to connect people to new music or artists such as Ryan Leslie and Drake. As a result, Lissa was simply dubbed ‘the go to girl’ for all things new, innovative and exclusive. Lissa Monét then used her business and marketing background as leverage to learn what it takes to be successful. “Whenever I’d see a void, I’d use my resources and connect people to make things happen.”
That void was a lack of female DJs in the Toronto party scene. Fueld with her passion for music and encouragement from fellow DJ friends, Lissa bought two turnables, a mixer and started studying the art of mixing music.
Shortly thereafter, with her popularity spreading through word of mouth, Lissa started spinning popular club nights across Toronto. She became a fixture for the highly anticipated Wayne Waner events hosted by Hennessey and Moët & Chandon and was soon spinning in clubs in Detroit, New York and Atlanta. Inventive and energetic, Lissa was pleasing crowds while controlling the vibe of the party mixing musical genres R&B, hip hop, soul, house/dance, rock, reggae and her favorite, 80′s classics.
