Launched in February 2016, PRODUCERGIRLS was founded by London-based producer and DJ, E.M.M.A together with producer pals P Jam, Dexplicit, Ikonika and Nightwave to encourage more young women to take up electronic music production.
The free to attend workshops give girls who have an interest in learning music production tips, expert advice and free software to help them get started. To date, several sessions have been run around the UK, from Glasgow to Manchester, London (Tate Modern) and Bristol, thanks to 3000 pounds raised by our Kickstarter. Producergirls now runs a series of tips on Instagram for aspiring producers.
“I’ve built a dream team of amazing producers with Dexplicit, Ikonika, P Jam and Nightwave to encourage more girls to take up music production. If we create a fun environment together with the tools, expertise and support needed to get people off the starting blocks, I think we could be onto a good thing. Everyone will get free access to software so that they can hit the ground running to develop their sound and make some tunes!" - E.M.M.A.
“I was lucky to be part of the teenage generation that FL gave the opportunity to be able to make music without the need to have a pro studio. So it’s great to be able to offer knowledge of the program to others who want to learn it" - DEXPLICIT
