Hack The DJ News

Final Speakers announced for our ‘Hack The DJ’ event in Milton Keynes


We recently announced that we are launching a series of events called HACK THE DJ in our hometown of Milton Keynes to help inspire, educate and empower local DJs with the knowledge to help them on the right path towards an exciting and successful career in the music industry.   

We have teamed up with local venue Unit Nine to help bring this event series to life by launching on International Women’s Day Friday 8th March.

We want to start by looking at a huge local problem, which is the drastic lack of female DJ talent.  

Last week we announced the first speakers including Jaguar, Sarah Polonsky-Pidgeon, Sarah Foote, Myradh Cormican, Missrepresent and our fireside chat with Alisha.

Today, we announce the final speakers including our Meet the Promoters panel with local promoters Madame Electrifie, Jobi (Driven) & Greg Costa (Arena MK Events) and also finally we welcome DJ Danielle from Centreforce FM.

Danielle Montana’s history in music stems back to Rare Groove, Disco, Funk, Electro, Hip Hop and Punk and at the age of 15 was voted the youngest female DJ in the UK voted by leading Music Judges at Time FM in London. Danielle is the first and youngest female DJs to play Underground Acid House music in the UK at the age of 16. Her first big UK exposure was acquiring a show on the first and only International House music radio station ‘Centreforce – 88.3FM’.

One part of the production duo ‘AphroDan’ a collaboration with Drum & Bass DJ, producer, and label owner Aphrodite, which saw the release of ‘Strut’ featuring the British top female actress and MC, Jenny Bean. Danielle is one of the original DJs on Centreforce FM and is part of its rebirth 2017.

Grahame Farmer

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.
