DJ Rap................sexy and can sing too
Going to see Helena Hauff again do a 7hr set at Bloc after the Autechre gig this Friday!
I'll be going home after the Autechre gig ....
'sexy' is definitely what I look for in a dj.
It always showed up the supposed egalitarian credentials of the 90s rave scene when every article I ever read about dj rap opened with something about her once being an underwear model.
It shows up the supposed egalitarian credentials of the modern rave scene that a quarter of a century later, she's still the only female dj half the people on this thread can name. And her 'sexiness' is the first thing most of them think about.
Is that supposed to be comedy or something?
Miss Djax, she fucking rocks it and has been doing so for many years.
Was at this a year ago, went because she was on the set list and I'd never seen her live. Did not dissapoint!!
I doubt its her but my mate DJd lots at Bangface as Wombcorps, even played the BF Glastonbury night in 2011. Actually we used to hang out at her mums loads and have pretty ace parties. Few of those who hit the decks went on to be semi regular giggers. Wombcorps, two of the lads now gig as Gand and DWarde and some of the Norfolk lads like Sam set up a night called Jungle Syndicate.
Lucy Locket, ex-Speed queen resident
Know all the names, not the people.
Not the one I'm talking about either. She was a bit of an old hardcore legend.
However Lucy Furr is worth a mention in this thread, industrial hardcore producer and DJ
Really enjoying this mix atm
And she would have recognised and utilised the value of her alleged 'sexiness' - for good and bad. Look at the male DJs of the same period and beyond. Listening to that Natasha Diggs set - that is a free ride because of her gender. As a Dj - fuck off.
Yeah, she was asking for it.
No, she took advantage of the system and made it work for her (as she thought appropriate).
I don't think that has any bearing whatsoever on the point I made tbh.
What do you think you point was?
I don't give a fuck what gender you are - just be a good DJ.
What is your fucking problem?
you and your weird late night sexist threadbump.
Tell you what - put on an event and place the DJs behind a screen - so no one knows who is playing and their gender / sex / age etc.
why are you still talking to me?
Put that event on. Equality in anonymity? Or are you going to suggest a deeper structural problem in relation to access to turntables / CDJs determined by gender?
Not sure what your problem is - maybe a failed DJ?
Sure, the only reason I could have for complaining - almost a year ago - about the lack of representation of women in dance music, and the objectification of those who do make it, is my own failed DJ career. That totally makes sense.
