Sin has launched a database of female, non-binary & gender non-conforming DJs in Aotearoa

music news 31/03/2022

After compiling a list of female, non-binary and non-gender conforming DJs in the notes of her phone for the last couple of years, our Sin has decided to make things a bit more official and opened up her resource as a tool for both DJs and promoters.

'I’ve been running this bootleg as iPhone notes list of every possible female, non-binary & gender non-conforming DJ i could think of for the last couple of years' she shared on Instagram.

'But as it looks like gigs are finally on the horizon I feel it’s time to create a proper adult-like database so we can put these gems of the dance music scene, centre-stage, where they belong.'
