It’s no secret that the EDM realm is monopolized by men. This has to change. Especially because there are so many talented, original, and brilliant women putting out electronic music today, one of the best is Mija. This DJ started off at the ripe age of 19 after being discovered by dubstep king Skrillex. Since then, she has a fashion line under her belt, has collaborated with some of the biggest names in EDM, and is headlining festivals all over the world. She is also not afraid to transcend genres, as her remixes combine a mix of trap, pop, house, and even emo. Seeing her is always a new experience, and that’s why you have to check her out.

2. Together PANGEA

It’s always a nice reminder to remember that punk isn’t dead. Together PANGEA is one of the best on the scene today. These Los Angeleno’s have found the perfect formula to create an impeccable garage rock song. Their critically acclaimed and highly anticipated debut LP Badillac was released in 2014, and they have been putting out bangers ever since. Their noisy, boozy shows always deliver an impressive set of debauchery, moshing, and sing-alongs.

 Chill downtempo guitar solos, atmospheric beats, and a saxophone. Referring to his music as “Future Funk” live shows by GRiZ bring together a mix of glitchy electronic tracks with booming dubstep bass, and elements of jazz, hip-hop and soul. This Michigan native brings electronic sounds with a full band, and it is always an incredible experience. GRiZ does not bring the dance party we need, but the dance party we deserve.
