Women in the Music Industry – Badass Babes and Why We Love Them

Women in the Music Industry – Badass Babes and Why We Love Them

Happy Women’s Month! The EDM industry is full of incredible female DJs, and Team NV has taken the time to focus in on a few of our favorite artists and why we think they’re awesome.

 

NERVO

The Nervo twins from Melbourne, Australia took the EDM industry by storm when they burst onto the scene and have continued to be a fan-favorite since. Their iconic style and bubbly personalities are at the forefront of everything they do, including throwing a hell of a party in any city they visit.

Although they’re new to the world of motherhood (one delivered and one on the way), the twins’ dedication to their music and the fans hasn’t wavered.

Congrats Mim and Liv!

 

CloZee

CloZee’s sound is different than what the EDM world is used to, and that’s just one of the reasons she’s so loved within the community. Most of her sounds are created using real instruments which showcases her culturally infused inspirations, bringing us into a new world with every track she plays.

(Also, she has a show at The Worcester Palladium on April 27th that you should totally check out)

 

Krewella

Krewella, comprised of the Yousaf sisters Jahan and Yasmine, describe themselves as a symbol of female empowerment and have proven themselves to be two of the largest female artists in the world of EDM.

The two are huge advocates for the LGBT community, and even took it a step further by marrying a lesbian couple at one of their past shows.

They rebel against the music industry norms to promote self empowerment and love after being raised with an Islamic background that often oppressed women’s rights.

 

Alison Wonderland

With a sound as big as her name is punny, Alison Wonderland is a Sydney-based EDM producer and DJ who began her music career on the opposite side of the spectrum, as a classically trained cellist.

“She has real music, she’s extremely real with her fans and you can tell that she cares a lot about them. She has no packaging for commercial success and she creates the music that she wants. She’s also an advocate for mental health. She’s awesome” – Cassidy

 

Huxley Anne

LA-based Huxley Anne composes ethereal electronic music with an edgy hint of punk. Surrounded by nature as a child, she spent her formative years studying ballet, playing in bands, and working on her three forms of expression—-music, movement, and visual art. Her music fuses elements of abstract hip-hop, heavy bass, experimental edm, and textural ambiance to create a new sub-genre that plays smoothly in an art gallery or seduces you at the club.

“She’s badass because she’s paving underground Bass scene for women, she’s a huge advocate for the LGBT community and mental health. She’s just incredible” -Maura

 

Lucii

Otherwise known as Emily Rose, Lucii is an otherworldly creator of a unique genera called Space Bass. She has already brought her intergalactic sound to this world through festival sets of Pass the Good, Fractal Beach, and many more.

She’s the first female artist on the Wakaan label! She’s an awesome producer and came out nowhere.

She just popped, and we all love her.

 

Rezz

Rezz is the moniker of Isabelle Rezazadeh, a Canadian DJ/producer from Niagara Falls, Ontario. When Isabelle was young. She also discovered music at an early age, and fell in love with EDM when she snuck into Toronto nightclubs while still in her teens. Rezazadeh began DJ’ing at age 16 and moved into making her own dark, minimal-inspired productions soon after, teaching herself the basics with online tutorials. 5 years ago, she was attending festivals and hanging out in the crowds with us, now she has a crazy cult following.

She invented her own style of music and has an awesome online persona.

We think you’re dope Space Mom.

 

Honorable Mention: Amy Thomson

amy

We know that she’s not a DJ, but she is one hell of a manager. She’s managed artists like Swedish House Mafia and DJ Snake and even worked with artists like Kanye West. She’s even created her own crash course MYOB for people who want to learn about management in the music industry.

“She’s the ABSOLUTE BOSS!!!” – Jorge

 

We’re so thankful to have incredible, hard-working women at NV Concepts, and we can’t wait to see what come next from all of these amazing women. You go girls!
