This might get me hammered by fan bois and girls out there, but I've got to get if off my chest. I'm so frickin sick and tired of the multidude of she djs who look fantastic but sound like shit. There, done.

Fully support the chicka DJs who can actually hold their own though!
Pete Gordon - Deep and Low

Slower tempo but still with balls, deephouse, slow-mo, futurehouse, nudeep, indie, nudisco, hints of progressive, whatever the fuck you want to call it, just good shit! Get on it

this, there are some seriously talented fem Djs in sydney that dont have to resort to relying on tacky promo to get gigs; Clarie Morgan, Trinity, Kate Doherty, Linda Jenseen, Mookie, Anabel Gasper, etc etc....

but comes down to whether as a dj they consider respect from their peers or just playing as many gigs as possible as a priority.

plus its a LOT harder for girls to get ahead in the game than guys

Very true and couldn't agree more - I'd add Keli Hart and Ange Dickinson to the list of non-tacky promo work. I had to endure Helena and Ruby Rose at various stages a couple of weeks ago and it just really got to me. And upon seeing a recent flyer on facebook...I'd had enough. Rage blah blah blah

are we talking about DJ's such as helena and anna lunoe?

I've recently noticed a massive influx of females making their mark on an already saturated scene.

Well mate, given taste is a purely subjective thing we're probably not likely to agree. For mine that's a glam shot that I find stylish.

From a promoters point of view, having that on the poster, is going to get people in the venue.

However, from a DJ/Chinstroker point of view, It sucks how looks get shunned over talent

There are a few things that can help a dj without skill:

*Being a hot female
*Getting shitloads of people into the venue
*Being a good drug dealer
*having Mafia/bikie connections

But when i go out i want to hear quality mixing and track selection, even if it comes from a 18 yr old pizza face dude...

i think the same point can be made about media personalities and other professionals

how many ugly male news readers are there, compared to their glamorous female colleagues??

but she used to use vinyl. new photo says otherwise now

oh, sorry pomrocks
i thought that was a bit weird

so is the equation:

relies on sexy/glamorous/tacky promo = lacking in actual DJ talent

&

relies on music and gig history = has actual DJ talent

(i'm glad this is being discussed because it's been a issue of mine for a while)

This is the problem IMO. A female and male DJ both give the promoter a demo, I'd say 9/10 times the promoter would probably assume the female DJ is shit and listen to the guys demo first. I think the blame lies at the feet of the promoters rather than try-hard hot female DJs.

There is some times where promoters actively seek/request female talent.

helena plays average music (imo) but from what i saw, she can mix and if she wants to be a big shot club dj and use her sexuality to get it, then all the power to her imo.
