Wnur, .wav female best ways to make good money online djs talk struggles and triumphs

AMANDA GORDON: I feel it does have this veneer of coolness if best ways to make good money online that makes sense. But behind it, I think, is a lot of nerdiness. I think, to be a good DJ, you have to spend — put those hours in, you know, digging through the crevices of youtube playlists and soundcloud and best ways to make good money online really trying to expand your music library and your knowledge. And I think that’s why clubs (like) streetbeat are so important because it’s not just about the technical skills of how to best ways to make good money online DJ but the history of different genres, where the music comes from, and just the cultural significance of what we’re doing as djs, not just the technical aspects. I think, to be a good DJ is to be curious and best ways to make good money online somewhat of a historian as well.

MELIA AGUDELO: you have to have equipment, and like you can DJ on your computer with (some) kind of software and that sort of thing, but it’s not very accessible and easy to learn. And just trying to find music and trying to understand best ways to make good money online the process, I think it is really intimidating. It feels like there’s a gap of knowledge that unless you’re participating in one of these groups, it’s really hard to learn, which is why I really appreciate streetbeat because I definitely best ways to make good money online wouldn’t have learned how to DJ otherwise, just because WNUR has the equipment there and you don’t have to buy equipment. And you can kind of learn on campus.

AGUDELO: my experience with streetbeat has been a really positive one, because every year I’ve been on it, there’s been sort of a woman who’s been part of the leadership, which I think is really important and encouraging because since best ways to make good money online I’ve been at northwestern most of the djs I know best ways to make good money online are men. So it’s cool to, even though if there’s a majority of men, the people that I value in my experience are women best ways to make good money online or non-binary people who DJ as well at northwestern.

AMANDA GORDON: I do this idea of prioritizing, female non-binary artists and giving them their sort of do. Even within streetbeat, of course, of course there are a few female djs, but it tends to be mostly male, I think. And even within streetbeat, I think over the years, more and more women have joined, which I think is really cool. I love the idea of being a part of that

AMANDA GORDON: I think, honestly, because my djing experience is really northwestern-centric, has been really northwestern-centric, I’ve sort of seen it through the prism of streetbeat. And while streetbeat my freshman year was primarily male, rachel williams was one of the producers at the time best ways to make good money online for streetbeat, one of three. And it was really cool to see her take charge best ways to make good money online of the club in a lot of ways and was best ways to make good money online sort of a role model for me I think, in just having, you know, she had her own show, and I would come by sometimes and she was really, really warm and was so happy to see more females best ways to make good money online joining. And I think that that sort of has motivated me best ways to make good money online to keep going and recruit more women into the fold. So, I think, I haven’t experienced any sort of discrimination or anything. But I think, a sense of empowerment from seeing other women come before best ways to make good money online me in streetbeat.

ANDREWS: generally, in events that I’ve djed in the past, it’s I’m the only woman that djs at a party and best ways to make good money online all the other lineup are all guys. I don’t know if it necessarily deters us. If anything, I think at least for me it makes me stand best ways to make good money online out a little bit more. I think because you see just dude after dude go best ways to make good money online up and then you see a woman go up and best ways to make good money online DJ, I think people…I think that people are interested and want to see best ways to make good money online it because that’s just not as common. So I think if anything, it’s helped me.
