DIME: AASHA ADORE (Smooth Magazine)

Yup, it's true.. I've know this big headed chick since middle school! lol

Aasha Adore’s style as a DJ is to be heard and not seen. Looking at her pictures, we think it should be both.

In the male-dominated realm of deejaying, there have always been a handful of females who knew how to rock a party. Spinderella. Jazzy Joyce.

To stay out of trouble, she would spend hours and hours at home listening to music. Back then, she was heavy into Baltimore club and house music, with small doses of hip-hop. In high school, Adore kept busy, in part because she “wanted to be in every picture in the yearbook.” She damn near succeeded, too. Debate team, Spanish club, president of the student government, track, tennis, volleyball: You name it, Adore did it.
