WDM (Women in Dance Music) collective launches at BMC18



A new music industry organisation launches at this month’s Brighton Music Conference, titled Women in Dance Music Collective.

Founded by Jude Thompson of Indigo Talent and our very own Sacha Wall from Data Transmission with partners from She Said So, Women Produce Music, Keychange EU and AFEM. The WDM Collective has been created to amplify the visibility of all women working with the electronic dance industry from engineers through to the artists.

Jude Thompson, co-founder WDM Collective said: “The Women in Dance Music Collective is intended to be a platform where people can connect, share stories, inspire and promote each other. Collaborating with the passion and expertise of established groups including She Said So, Women Produce Music and Keychange EU, the WDM Collective will add their voices promoting the visibility of women, encouraging new entrants and nurturing rising stars. We want to instigate positive change at all levels and recognize the strong female contribution to this dynamic and growing industry.”

They will be meeting in Brighton at Hotel Pelirocco in an invite-only event, sponsored by Native Instruments, to meet and network.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
