Roberta is a long time heavy music head originally from Bari, Puglia living in London for 30 years.

Adopting herself to the Talking Loud events at Dingwalls, and then later Bar Rumba's ‘That’s How It Is’ and the Straight No Chaser magazine family she soon became a well connected link between Italy and the 90’s underground London scene and all its trends.

As a Straight No Chaser scribbler, correspondent for Acid Jazz magazine and RadioItaliaNetwork, Roberta went on living her dream in London for being the place where music has always been happening and the club scene has always been strong in terms of legacies.

This to mention the later merging of another extremely important music fam into Roberta’s life as a digger as this one came via professor-friend-dancer-writer Tim Lawrence (thank you Tim! for introducing her to David Mancuso (RIP) and the Lucky Cloud Sound System and for inviting her to join the party set-up volunteers group).

In recent years, together with organising unique multimedia Arts crossover events-parties for selected clients/festivals in Italy, the ultimate leitmotif of her search has been reaching out to people to open up for new directions hence the never forgotten purpose of wanting to be a radio broadcaster-music selector that plays music with a message hence her new acclaimed name as a dj-selector as Roberta ReachOut.

Currently on air monthly on Totally Wired Radio (ReachOut Sound Emporium), it’s an incredible joy watching her spinning (Bookclub, The Seveney, The Horse & Groom): being such a natural happy dancer with complete devotion to music, spinning has just become second nature to Roberta as for the first time she has the challenge to be playing a long set which means there will be #moremusic as she always reminds, old friends Norman Jay MBE or Gilles Peterson, at the end of an email.
