Over four days, together for the first time in one space, this assembly of pioneers will augment the norm shifting momentum, focusing on intersectionality, cultivating stronger support systems, skill sharing, musing and experiencing music and dance.

Music is for every body!

DJ Volvox was an instrumental part of Make It New for years as a resident DJ, co-promoter, and graphic designer. We would not be here without her and we’re psyched that she’s back again. She was recently given a endorsement by XLR8R as a “Winner” of Movement Detroit 2016.

Watch her churning and burning set for Boiler Room here:

Where all the ladies at?

The article highlights the new wave of women behind the decks putting out some fantastic new sound. Fader calls out these nine crews for a good reason, they are all making an effort in creating a positive impact for all women throughout the industry. Fader points out,

“In an industry where there are people who don’t encourage—and in some cases, actively discourage—women to pursue DJing for a living, exclusively female-identifying projects carry massive significance.”

Take a look at these ladies and let us know what you think!

In the Fader article Paula Temple was interviewed and she explains,

Maybe when we reach the point where sidelining, gaslighting, denying, undermining, taking over, reductionism, hostile environments and sexual harassment have disappeared, there would be less of a reason to create all-female projects.”

But until that point is reached, lets embrace these ladies and their killer contributions to music.
