Best Female DJs

Best Female DJs

We love EDM. Full stop.

There’s no doubt that in today’s EDM scene female DJs deliver the same level of performance as their male colleagues.

We took a poll among our favorite EDM lovers and compiled a list of the women who are currently dominating the DJ world.


Nervo

Nervo Duo

This is not one female DJ but a pair of them! They’re sisters, in fact.

Olivia and Miriam Nervo are the ultimate Australian DJ duo and their debut album has won international dance music awards.

They’ve also written songs for Ke$sha, David Guetta, Kelly Rowland, and many other top artists! Together they are the highest billed female DJ in the world.

Charlotte De Witte

Charlotte de Witte

Charlotte isn’t just a DJ, she’s also a techno music goddess, with her own record label where she also acts as a record producer.

She had a huge hit single with “You’re Mine” which had Oscar and the Wolf featured on it.

She’s based in Ghent, Belgium which might explain her drive to get out and explore the rest of the world as a DJ.

Mariana BO

Mariana BO

We love Mariana’s deep house music but she’s also comfortably at home dishing out the progressive and future house too.

Her debut single was Kolkata and it was a smash hit.

She was originally a classical musician and is currently the only world-class female musician and music producer from Mexico!

Alison Wonderland

Alison Wonderland

Her real name’s Alexandra Margo Sholler but she’s best known as Alison Wonderland. She’s worked with a huge range of artists including The Weekend and Lorde.

She’s from Australia where she once studied the cello and was a keen member of the Indie Rock Scneen.

She’s considered to be one of the world’s greatest DJs and given she only really began Djing in 2012, her achievements are incredible.

Miss K8

Miss K8

We love Miss K8’s take on techno and experimental electronica and she’s from Ukraine.

Her record label is very pleased with her performances and she’s won the Juno Awards Electronic Music Album of the Year on more than one occasion!

Her collaborations with Angerfist are legendary and even though she took some maternity leave recently – she’s still capable of demanding the top slot at nearly any of the top techno festivals.

Mandy

Mandy (Praet) is a Belgian who is all about hardstyle – she started out in the techno scene in 2015 and then took up a contract with the Hard Dance imprint “Dirty Workz” just a year later.

Her remix of Tiesto’s Jackie Chan is considered to be one of the best remixes of all time. She’s concrete proof that the ladies can lay down a beat the equal of any man.

RayRay

DJ RayRay

This Taiwanese DJ is a major deal on the EDM scene and she’s something of a techno queen in Asia.

She was the only woman to enter the 2013 Red Bull Thre3Style competition where she represented her country. She was also the winner and that tells you all that you need to know about her incredible talent.

She is often on the bill at major festivals but you can also hear her tunes in the background in many a movie soundtrack.

Deborah De Luca

Deborah De Luca

Italy’s number one woman DJ is Deborah De Luca and she actually started out working in fashion design before deciding that wasn’t really what she loved and she started out dancing in clubs as she worked her way towards her dream role as a DJ.
