DJ Rap's moniker may be a little misleading in its simplicity. Created out of an early fixation with breakbeats and hip-hop, it served better as a bypass key into the cock-and-balls attitude of the club world. You see, DJ Rap (AKA Charissa Saverio) was born in Singapore and spent an enviable childhood in picturesque locales with exotic vistas. She's a trained piano player who narrowly escaped an existence as a lawyer when she discovered the rave/party scene during a stint in the United Kingdom. But Rap's worn many hats along the way model, label owner, producer, and singer, to name a few. Jumping from sweaty club kid to turntablist, Rap's floor experience allows her to work off a drum 'n' bass platform while seamlessly incorporating aspects of rock, trance, ambience, and house into the mix. She is the "First Lady of Jungle" for a reason; and that reason is not based solely on her smoking good looks.
