It's that time of the week for The DJ's Profile. Today we have none other that Roni O'Brien who shares some lovely memories of her experience of Margate Soul Festival. Roni is based in Hornchurch, Essex and has been DJing since the year 2000 1. What do you do when you're not DJing? I am a radio presenter on Solar Radio 2. What the best advice you've ever received? Always arrive an hour before you set so you know what's been played 3. Who influences and inspires you? I have some well respected DJs in my friend circle but the most influential is Antony John Matthews, he is ultra professional and never gets involved with trivia and niff naff. For the musical influence it's obviously Solar Radio. 4. When was your first time at Margate Soul Festival? The second ever Margate weekender with Mick Bradley, Graham Robert Martin, Tony Matthews and Pete Collins. It started in King St in Eli Thompson bar the Westcoast Bar. At that point Eli kept it quiet that he could sing!!!! Lol Eli said those famous words 'I have a dream..... Margate will be the biggest Soul weekend in Britain' I thought at the time whaaaat??? In Margate? Over the years Margate has come on leaps and bounds. The Turner Contemporary Gallery was built the new sea wall and many, many gorgeous trendy shops in the back streets. Many of the old guest houses have been renovated and with the Sands Hotel Margate on the sea front it's a lovely seaside place. It's great to see how Margate has morphed and Eli's dream has become a reality. 5. What is your top tip for those that have never experienced Margate Soul Festival? Buy early bird tickets and accommodation as soon as you can 6. Have you any tips on up and coming talent we should look out for? Soulutions are a great UK band 7. Can you tell us a secret? I don't tell secrets
