A true amazing life story !
Ruth Flowers, was the matriarch and the hippest English deejay of our time. The woman known as MAMY ROCK was still rocking the planet at the age of 82 as the latest sensation of the world club scene.
Following a high‐profile stint as resident DJ at the very private Villa Murano during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival in front of stars including Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey and an exceptional set in January 2010 at the legendary Queen club on the Champs Elysées Paris, Ruth Flowers was definitely in the midst of an unexpected international success story at the age of 80.
After the launch of her first single « Still Rocking » in 2011, her second "69" and a successful world Tour through Europe's best Clubs and Festivals (including Glastonbury), the fabulous Mamy Rock has finally launch her third single KISSY KISSY.
«The hippest Deejane in circulation», according to Vanity Fair.
How this amazing adventure in life has started ?
"Everything began the night, when my grandson, whom I'm very close to, celebrated his birthday at a disco in London. He invited me to join him and his friends. When I arrived the doormen wouldn't allow me inside. Its true, I didn't look like their usual customer (laughs)... I did get in eventually... only to be dumbfounded...there was such an electric atmosphere! It was so different from the dances & the bands I used to go to when I was younger. There was a real osmosis between the music and the lights, it energized me!...made me feel so much younger!
That night shattered my view of things, especially the way I saw my life...I had a lot of free time...I discussed my idea with my grandson, he thought I'd gone mad. Sometime after our talk, an acquaintance put me in touch with a young French producer, Orel Simon. I told him my idea and he took on the challenge. I wasn't sure about it working but was prepared to give it a go, Orel was convinced and he took me with him. Since then I have made many trips around the planet, met quite a number of D.J.s. Orel introduced me to electro and house music. I went to clubs and been practicing a lot with the new machines. It was really fun!! Now I know I can make everybody move their ass on the dance floor (laughs)...»
The European Press has declared the 80 Year old Deejane from Bristol a role model, but also as a fashion and glamour icon. Adidas Originals along with the famous Marangoni Fashion Institute invited the coolest Granny on the planet to rock their 75th anniversary party in Milan.
Previously, she entertained elite guests including Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis at the Karl Lagerfeld Chanel Party in the VIP Room at the Cannes Film Festival.
Whoever said you have to mellow with age? Certainly not Mamy Rock, who gives retirement a big kick in the pants ! She was an unusual and charismatic woman who with great serenity presents her unique and dynamic personality. Nice and eccentric, strong and full of energy, she loved to have fun and share the good times with all around her.
Everyone loves Ruth Flowers: the trendiest clubs on the planet, all had their sights on this DJ with a difference, who inspires the young while encouraging respect of senior citizens. On Youtube her videos have reached more than 4 Million visitors and the French TV Canal said that « she played like the Queen of the Night! ».
More than mere DJ sets, Ruth Flower's mixes were fabulous shows bringing together the latest electro-hits that all the club‐kids love as well as the old school classics she adores. Ruth Flowers is a unique opportunity to meet an Artist who spins stereotypes about old people, but also the DJ world on their head.
« …Indeed, I'd rather sign a contract with a record company than sign up to a nursing home! » says Ruth Flowers
