In 2000, Lil Win began her DJ career in her hometown of Flin Flon Manitoba, where she quickly learned to diversify her music lists by playing weddings, socials, and the local bar (yes there was only one).
Incorporating her fandom for movies and television, her playlists are sprinkled with theme songs, famous movie quotes and soundtracks.
As an alumni student of Mama Cutsworth’s DJ Academy for All Women and Non-Binary Folks , she became a founding producer of Casual Friday, a monthly DJ night featuring other Academy grads. She is a licensed DJ and has performed on the main stage of the Winnipeg Fringe Festival (2016, 2017, 2018) and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival (2017-2018). She specializes in weddings, socials, and private parties.
Her DJ name stems from a play on her last name, which has been a bit vexing to constantly spell out. It’s also a warm reminder of life in a small town; a place where last names are shouted enthusiastically on the street and in the bar.
