Lottie's diary

I started a particularly busy week with a gritty gig at Passion, a club located in deepest darkest League Of Gentleman land, Coalville in Leicestershire. It turned out to be a really good night, playing to a packed house with my Radio 1 pal Seb Fontaine. My biggest tune that night was 'Back To The Future', from Parisian newskooler Raw Man, closely followed by 'Caught Out' from The Hip Therapists 2. They both got huge reactions. After that, it was straight to Luton Airport, from where I flew off for two days of much-needed holiday back in Ibiza with my good friend Trish. We stayed at Nellee Hooper's amazing villa. Revived and relaxed, it was Italy next for the end of the Venice Film Festival, where I DJ'd at a party in a huge aircraft hangar for 2,000 people. Hugely popular Italian DJs, Claudio Coccoluto and Alex Neri, were playing too. I wish they had warned me earlier about the 40ft ladder I had to climb to get into the DJ booth though. If I'd have known about it, I definitely wouldn't have worn that miniskirt!
