Lex On The Decks brings Hot Girls to Data Transmission Radio
The gender gap in the music industry is no new news, but unfortunately, it’s a prevailing issue.
This spans DJs, producers and artists and isn’t just an issue of exposure and volume but also perceived credibility. Rather than focus on the problem, Hot Girls is working to create spaces to stimulate creativity and spotlight female talent.
The Hot Girls Mix series, which is created by Akua Ofei (Podcast Producer), Lex On The Decks (Founder and Presenter), Taiwo Eshinlokun (Lead Curator, Mix Series) is part of the Hot Girls Podcast, now comes to Data Transmission Radio.
The series aims to amplify the work of female and non-binary DJs, producers and artists through mixes that celebrate them. Created by womxn, featuring predominantly female-identifying artists and producers, the mix series has been highly curated to present excellence across a range of genres, from techno to trap to disco to soul.
