Get to know the Brooklyn collective promoting gender diversity in dance music.
NYC’s Discwoman collective is the subject of the first episode of Tribes, a new video series from Smirnoff Sound Collective looking at groups around the world fostering diversity and inclusivity within dance music.
Founded in 2014 by Frankie Hutchinson, Emma Burgess-Olson and Christine Tran, Discwoman has grown from a two-day festival at Brooklyn’s Bossa Nova Civic Club to an international event that’s held parties in more than 15 cities around the world.
The first episode of Tribes goes behind the scenes with the collective’s key players as they prepare to visit Mexico City, shining a light on Discwoman’s origins and goals together with interviews from The Black Madonna, Star Eyes, Demian Licht, Sandunes, Nicole Moudaber and Ninasonik.
Smirnoff Sound Collective was founded in 2014, aiming to bring artists and fans closer together and provide a platform for up-and-coming artists. For more, head here.
