Ladies, start freshening up your playlists and turntable skills because a big opportunity is about to hit the US. She Can DJ is a nationwide talent competition to find the country’s top female DJ/Producer. It's set to kick off in July bringing together the partnership of CBS Radio and Astralwerks, a label that is home to an impressive list of dance music's top talent such as Fatboy Slim, David Guetta, Hot Chip, Swedish House Mafia, and The Chemical Brothers.
After successful programs in Australia and throughout Europe, She Can DJ will launch in major markets with local competitions run by CBS Radio in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Boston, Detroit, Phoenix, San Diego, Charlotte, and Las Vegas. It will all come down to 12 semi-finalists, including one wild card competitor, to show what they've got for a grand prize that includes a recording contract with Astralwerks and headline a tour through the CBS RADIO markets that took part in the competition.
“Seeing how successful She Can DJ was in discovering top female DJ/Producer’s in overseas markets it’s the perfect time to launch stateside,” Astralwerks General Manager Glenn Medlinger says. “The United States is the hottest place on earth for dance music right now but the industry is largely male dominated. We’re thrilled to be a part of a program that will help discover and develop top female talent in the dance music space.”
