It’s true that women in music deserve to be appreciated on their merits and not lumped into the “girl DJ” category. But the stubborn fact persists that there’s a despairingly low number of females in the electronic dance music world. So we at VIBE want to show appreciation for those who persist in face of the odds and hopefully inspire more to do so.
Today, we’ll travel deep into the dark side of techno and focus on the women who are making the beats. The producers featured here are a mix of established names and budding artists from all over the world. We’ve left a couple names out that you might miss, but the Miami New Times has a great list of female DJs that’s entirely different from ours but totally relevant.
