Her hero is her Grandma, she loves popstars and until recently, she sported a bottle green barnet. Venus X is the visionary New York party monster who wants to make the world dance.

Launching her own club night just over two years ago, which she explains was once described as “A night of psychic trauma”, Venus X is an NYC lovechild. Boasting an influential circle of friends who are creating exciting things out of not much right now (shout out to A$AP), Venus is the robust product of an unlikely upbringing. Raised by her full-time drug-dealing/ part-time father and school-teaching mother, this brown-eyed babe found solace in her books, remembering her childhood as being particularly nerdy. Maturing into a hard-working, intelligent, single-minded woman, today her main prerogative is to create music which drip-feeds people life experience. Relating more to old school hip-hop vibes fronted by Missy and Aaliyah, Miss X is a girl who laughs out loud and is now starting to realise her dreams of trotting the world with her tunes in tow. A slow-burning talent with a whole lot of buzz, Venus takes her drinks with a twist of pineapple and her music straight-up. i-D online hailed a double decker and took the exotic dancehall beauty to Dalston emporium Afro World to bond over extensions.
