Having taken the UK and International club scene by storm over the last 3 and a half years, Lauren Pope continues her unparalleled and unrivalled lead role as the original and No1 UK Glamour Girl DJ. And yes, she can actually play– which she has more than proved as she continues to receive rave reviews and acclaim wherever she DJ’s.
Born and bred in small Devon town Torquay, Lauren decided to head to the bright lights of London to pursue her music and modelling career. Whilst putting in the hours honing her DJ skills she built up a huge fan base as one of the UK's most popular and well known models having appeared regularly on the pages of all the major lads magazines including Nuts, Zoo, FHM, Loaded, Mixmag and was one of the most frequently used 'Page 3' girls for national newspapers The Sun and the Daily Star. This led to becoming a recognised face on the London party scene which helped cement her as a regular on the pages of gossip columns and magazines. She was mostly linked to the UK's most eligible bachelors including her high profile ‘royal romance’ with Prince Harry. Lauren’s career change continues to get support from these publications with popular UK magazine 'Nuts' naming her as one of the 'Worlds Sexiest DJ’s', as well as always being highly ranked in their ‘Top 100…’ polls. Lauren not only has a strong fan base here in the UK but she has built up her name around the globe with publications from Australia, Denmark, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and Czech Republic often using her images.
Alongside modelling came a successful acting career for Lauren which including main roles in 2 of the UK's most popular shows at the time, ‘Mile High’ and ‘Dream Team’ (Sky 1), as well as film roles in critically acclaimed UK productions 'Rise of the Footsoldier' and 'Clubbing to Death'.
Lauren is regularly asked to give her opinion as a celebrity guest on current affair television shows and was also a contestant on a celebrity edition of 'The Weakest link' with Anne Robinson. Lauren also appeared on the popular entrepreneur based reality show 'Tycoon' on ITV1 with Dragons Den's Peter Jones.
Once Lauren was confident and ready to DJ she was unleashed on the club circuit achieving rave reviews. This led to bookings internationally, which have to date included high profile clubs and events in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Moscow, Chicago, Miami, Athens, Mallorca, India, Malaysia, The Phillipines, Singapore, Kavos, Chamonix, Shanghai, London, Manchester, Rome, Kuwait, Croatia, Spain, Liverpool and many more. Lauren can play a selection of genres including RnB and Hip Hop but her current success is down to her sexy style of house music playing the best electro, vocal, commercial and progressive tunes across the globe. Lauren never fails to get the crowd in a frenzy – her genuine passion for music always ensures she delivers an outstanding set, and as a result many repeat bookings and an ever growing fanbase. Lauren always lives up to her glam girl image by dressing to impress whilst behind the decks and she consistently proves that she is far more than just a pretty face as she has successfully launched herself as a credible international DJ.
Lauren has also moved into the world of producing and is now being asked to remix tunes for well known UK artists. Most recently she worked with Heatwave on the remix for 'Broken' by RnB artist Pierre Lewis, released via AMD (Universal) which reached No6 in the club charts. Lauren is now working on more of her own spicy, sexy material due to be released during 2011.
Having built a credible name on the DJ scene along with her sexy glam image, Lauren became the ‘go to’ girl for celebrities wanting to host and party in London and she has spun for T-Pain, Neyo, Jenna Jameson and Lindsey Lohan. This event attracted a lot of controversy and press attention for her as it was around the time Lindsey was ‘off’ with girlfriend Sam Ronson. Subsequently Lauren was unwittingly brought into the bitter battle, touted in the press as Lindseys ‘revenge’ on Sam, by being requested to spin at her London launch party for her new tanning range. Lauren was of course happy to oblige!
Having become a regular name on the UK, Middle East and European club scene Lauren has securely set her sights on cracking the American market. Having already played at US venues including Y Bar and Enclave in Chicago and Liv @ The Fontainebleau in Miami there are plans for a major tour in 2011.
