Already among the UK’s hardest music hitters, with her very own critically acclaimed Supa Dupa Fly nights featuring the likes of Rita Ora, Jazzy Jeff, and Disclosure, EZ & Wookie at Soho House/Shoreditch House/Jazz Café, and performances at exclusive events for Big Boi, Eve, Chanel, Nike and Kanye West, no less, DJ/Promoter Emily Rawson has had The Guardian and Time Out among many others raving about her BBC radio guest mixes and stage sets at some of the UK’s biggest live events – including Lovebox, The Great Escape and Street Fest.
Right now, Emily’s exciting collaboration with acclaimed Chef Joseph Curtis (formerly of St Johns among other equally illustrious eateries) really is the flavour of things to come – a huge evening that mixes up the authentic (Wu) tang of the American South straight outta Joseph’s Hip-Hop-Up kitchen with sizzling 90s and Noughties Hip-Hop and hot and spicy R&B delivered with Emily’s unique aplomb and decksterity.
Emily Rawson says, Supa Dupa Fly meets Soul Food is a complete 360o sensory experience of all things ‘soul’. Marrying together culinary soul food & Caribbean inspired classics with hip hop and R&B, pleasuring your ears and now tickling your taste buds too – perfect”.
As well as mouthwatering classics from Pulled Jerk Chicken to Blueberry Pie, the menu promises some very tasty special guest artists (including the truly extraordinary Leonn) popping up between the three course to cleanse your palate and, from 11pm onwards, a full-on Supa Dupa Fly club night to rock the house till 3am with Kiss FMs Shortee Blitz and Emily herself on the wheels of steel.

We love quizzes and are regularly spotted across London trying to win whatever is on offer so when we heard about a hip hop pub quiz at The Bedroom Bar we signed up straight away.
It’s a different take on the traditional pub quiz and one that really works and is hosted by Supa Dupa Fly.
To take part you’ll need a team of up to five people and the type of questions on offer will largely feature 90s music themes.
Think any kind of music towards the end of the 1990s and early 2000s, such as Dre, Snoop, Nas, Bigge, Tupac, Missy, A Tribe Called Quest, DMX, Luda, TLC, Montell Jordon, SWV, Salt N Pepa and Destiny’s Child.
It costs £7 on the door, for the quiz and later a night of retro hip hop karaoke. There’s even a prize for the best spitter – not literally, but one which is the best at karaoke and you can find our more details on the website.
