When it comes to worldwide DJ rankings, DJ Mag’s "Top 100 DJs" list is king. The be all end all of the electronic music industry, the list is voted on by the public and published once a year in November. And if you didn’t make the cut, you’re simply not relevant this year.
While the wide-ranging list encompasses DJs from all sects of the EDM world, it fails to include one thing - women. Not one female DJ made the list this year. In fact, Claudia Cazacu is the only women to make the list since 2007, earning her spot as number 93. In a scene that’s fairly equi-gender when it comes to the fan base, I really have to wonder, what gives? Where are the female DJs?
Kristin Schrot, better known as "Miss Nine" has helped pave the way for female DJs everywhere. One of the first to ignite the model/DJ trend worldwide, Miss Nine is one charming, beautiful and talented package in demand everywhere from Seattle to Buenos Aires. When she’s not traveling the world playing the latest tracks from her own label 925 Digital, Miss Nine is busy being the ambassador for Levi’s Curve ID line and Plan International, a designer for the leather jacket brand Goosecraft and a spokesperson for Pioneer. When she’s running at full speed doing the aforementioned things, she’s listening to Michael Jackson and M83, running in forests and throwing down in the kitchen. Sorry fellas, but this fresh-faced beauty is taken.
