Easing my way into it after 5 months off! I'll be playing the UK's first socially distanced outdoor festival on Saturday 1st August.
International Women’s Day
Here’s 5 ladies who rock the music world…
Happy International Women’s Day!
20 years as a head in the game & still at the absolute peak of her career, creator of ‘Jackathon’ & a world respected international DJ, Heidi is a force not to be reckoned with. She is an inspiration to all aspiring females in the music industry & beyond. A firm part of the Get Physical crew, Heidi demonstrates she can sit anywhere under the House and Techno umbrella and does it better than most. Whether it’s playing at Berlin’s Watergate, headlining festivals in Australia or 338 in London she excels in every aspect & with absolute ease.
Social media guru & all round social butterfly. Kate also known as KTGeorge, is a positive light that inspires us everyday to work harder & be the best versions of ourselves. Her work ethic and empathy to others is second to none. Personal Assistant to Sam Divine, she takes everything in her stride and no job is too big for her and is a real asset to the DVINE trio. Professional in all fields of her work & now a fledging new producer; we can’t wait to see what she does over the next 12 months.
Over 20 years in the music industry, more than 100 productions & 15 compilations under her belt Lisa Lashes is a pioneer in her genre. From hard dance to trance, Lisa’s musical knowledge & ability to mix is extensive. Lashes also gives back to the up & coming community by running her own School Of Music which is a world leading academy that teaches DJing & production. Lisa Lashes is a real asset to our scene and a huge inspiration to many.
Product & Events Operations Manager at Defected, Glitterbox & Classic, Amanda is a pivotal part to the reason why the production at these club nights & festivals are incredible. Be it from driving up the country with hundreds of Disco Balls in the back of a van for a Glitterbox party, or organising the infamous pack of Drag dancers, there is absolutely nothing that she can’t do. She does her job with ease & grace & is a hugely unsung hero. Huge asset to the Defected business & a beautiful human inside & out.
Head booker of Halcyon club in San Francisco, Jo Jo is the ultimate female boss. Helping run a club with a serious girl gang is something we admire so much. Currently co running her own music festival in Hawaii this powerhouse is a real aspiration in our world. DJ Mag features & hosting regular international DJs at her clubs, and all done whilst remaining the most down to earth chica, we can’t wait to watch her grow ever more.
