She is also no stranger to house music haven Ibiza where she has played on the terrace at Space as well as at El Divino.

These include regular performances at clubs such as Sankeys in Manchester and Turnmills in London as well as having Shindig, The Egg, the Cross, the Key, Canvas and the Honey Club performances under her belt. At these established venues, she has Djed alongside Paul Woolford, Jo Mills, James Talk, Smokin Jo, Trevor Rockliffe and Jon Carter to name but a few. She kicked off 2007 in style with a months residency in Shanghai at Absolute House where she played 4 nights a week, warming up for luminaries such as James Lavelle amongst many other established acts.

Donning her welly's, Rebekah has performed in front of massive audiences at UK festivals such as Escape into the Park and Wakestock. Further a field, she was asked to guest at Serbia's Exit festival in 2006. This summer of 2007 Rebekah played at the worlds largest dance festival; Global Gathering in Stratford Upon Avon and has also returned to the Exit Festival in Serbia for a second consecutive year playing alongside Martin Landsky and Argy. One million listeners tuned in to hear one of Rebekah's biggest achievements to date, a Radio 1 interview by the notorious Fergie. After he played her tech house and tribal techno mix it was no surprise when Notion magazine approached Rebekah to do a three page spread on her as one of the UK'S hottest up and coming DJ's. The press interest doesn't stop there, M8 had their eye on Rebekah giving her a front cover and interview, pinning her down as a key breakthrough DJ. In the past few years more focus has been applied to the studio side of things working closely with established producers and fellow DJ's Simon Baker, Deepgroove and Leaim Sullivan. Her first release "Toad in a Hole" came out in April 2007 on German label Criminal Records and has had growing support from the likes of Steve Lawler, Gabriel Ananda, Monoroom and Oliver Klein. Over the summer this track became one of Ibiza's underground anthems finding its way onto Amnesia's Underground 7 compilation which is a huge achievement for Rebekah especially for a first release. January 2008 will see the release of a second EP on Criminal Records. Already gaining support from Funk d Void, Mark Knight, Yousef, Greg Vickers and Mistress de Funk who played Neo on her Radio 1 show. Loving the release so much a second airplay of the second track Freakonomics went out for her Xmas special. Rebekah's first remix is also due out in January 2008 on Toolroom Records With production now firmly under her belt as well as technical DJing flair, its no surprise this 26 year old is kicking up a storm for the new generation of clubbers.
