Reid Speed isn’t new to the dance world. Beginning her career as a clerk at New York’s legendary Breakbeat Science, Reid emerged in the early 2000s as one of the few female faces in the drum & bass scene, becoming an instant underground hero with her girly looks and New York attitude. She has released a few major mix CDs, appeared in Triple Five Soul ads, DJed for Jamie Kennedy’s show, and received ink in major publications like Urb. But with the changing music scene, Reid did the unthinkable. She moved from New York to Los Angeles and started making a name for herself as a breakbeat DJ. The change has worked and Reid continues to be one of the most booked female DJs in the US, switching styles from breaks to DnB, depending on the occasion. But it’s her commitment to the scene and culture that has truly kept her relevant in these fickle times. A down-to-earth personality and unquestionable skills and charisma on the decks are just icing on the cake.
