Female DJ Duos: The Collyer Twins

Identical twin sisters, DJs, fashion bloggers and self-confessed sun-seekers, Jordan and Loanne Collyer are in sync in every way - especially when they're behind the decks together.

How did you break into the music scene? 

Loanne: Luckily, my boyfriend is a DJ and we also have a lot of DJs in our social group in London. It made it easier for us to learn, get our names out there, and start playing at the right events.

Did you always want to be a DJ? 

Jordan: We never grew up thinking we'd be DJs. Saying that, music has always been a huge passion of ours, so when we realised we were surrounded by people in the music industry, we thought it was a no-brainer to start learning!

What does your summer schedule look like? 

L: We are DJing at El Dorado Festival - we can't wait! We’re also doing another festival called Wheels and Fins in September and potentially DJing at Yacht Week Croatia. We also have quite a few brand events coming up and a lot more in the pipeline! Stay tuned...
