New Music Alert: DJ Mamy Rock

I guess they’re right, old people, though slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose.

Yo, Ruth Flowers has been behind the 1s and 2s since DJ Paulie D’s PARENTS were in diapers. Clad in her leopard-skin shrug and dark sunglasses, 69-year-old Ruth Flowers has conquered French clubland from the Cannes Film Festival to the top Paris nightspots with a mix of old-school hits, electrobeat and bling-bling style. Check out her first track here.

“It started really when my grandson had a birthday party … they always have a little disco, don’t they, after the party. I went along quite late and the gentlemen at the door said, ‘I don’t think you want to go in there, Madame’. And I said, ‘Well I rather think I do’,” she said.

“I went in and it was very noisy and the lights were flashing, but there was an awful lot of energy and joy.”

While Flowers, a trained singer, was more used to church songs, German lieder and classic pop, she was so taken by the party that she decided there and then to become a disc jockey.

“I had no idea at the time of electro music,” she said.
