Mix: DJ Barely Legal - Rise Up #024

Despite her novelty DJ name, this mix is from the grime princess is legit.

23-year-old Brummie born, London-based DJ Barely Legal (Chloe Robinson) just unleashed this dream of a mix for Trap Magazine, featuring songs from across the garage, jungle, grime, bass and footwork spectrums, along with a good dose of Destiny's Child, Usher, Jeremih and Alicia Keys. Robinson got her name before she even started DJing, when – at 16, a friend jokingly called her ‘DJ Barely Legal’, and it stuck (she even jokingly introduced herself to dubstep legend Coki as that soon after – brave!). At 19, she actually did learn to DJ (growing up in Birmingham with a mum that was way into garage music gave her a leg up into some more unique selects), and started using the name for real when playing in public.

Despite her novelty name, this lady’s skills are nothing to smirk at – she’s regularly seen mixing it with the big boys of UK grime, dubstep and bass on club line ups with consistent quality song selections – this mix being a shining example, and a great introduction for fans new to DJ Barely Legal.
