Female, multi-disciplined and working at the crossroads of East and West: if anybody embodies the new music industry of the 21st century, it’s label boss, composer, model and DJ Janette Slack.

Whether it’s afterhours in a secret club or soundtracking a fashion catwalk, Janette has stamped her reputation (as Time Out once declared) as ‘The city’s music boss’.
