What's it like having dinner with Beyoncé? How many tour buses do the Backstreet Boys need? And how do you win a staring competition with Prince? DJ Nikki Beatnik actually has the answers to all these questions, and more!

We talk about her life on the road with the likes of Kelis and All Saints. We find out what it's like to meet Grace Jones and your future husband on the same day, while massively hungover.

There's a bit of chat about Nikki's experience of having corona twice, and how she's coping with long Covid. We talk about her interiors business, Hip Hop Homes London, and the amazing Mums That Rave movement. Plus, we learn about the only alcoholic drink Nikki will ever consume, and why she's never had a cup of tea.

You can follow Nikki @djnikkibeatnik, and see her interiors stuff @hiphomehomeslondon. And do check out the awesome @mumsthatrave. Listen to Nikki's music on Mixcloud.
