ARIA DJ Of The Week: Femme

Meet the Melbourne electro DJ.

Melbourne-based Femme has been notoriously noted in the industry as ‘the one to watch’. This blonde ball of energy has had no trouble cementing herself in the DJ Scene and gaining a well-respected reputation through her gigs and releases. Her bangin’ club sets and dedication to the industry comes with a passion that shines through. She has mixed six iTunes top ten dance compilations plus had many ARIA chart-topping single releases under her own name. Add to this having been a successful touring DJ across Australia and overseas for the last 9 years.

Femme was signed to LNG Music / Universal as a chosen artist to mix the numerous “Pump It” compilations. The releases have been a huge success and are still one of the highest-selling compilations in Australia. These releases have seen Femme complete three national tours across the country over two years, playing in capital cities and regional areas throughout Australia. On the promotional side she has featured on Nova Nation, Austereo network nationwide, Video Hits and Channel Ten nationally. To follow on from these compilations Femme has also mixed Wild Summer with buddy Uberjakd, which also added another national tour to her list. In 2013, she mixed her first online compilation for Ministry of Sound – “This Is Schoolies” – which hit no 4 on the iTunes chart!

This already high-in-demand female was selected by EMI as one of Australia’s top ten female DJs as part of the “She Can DJ” campaign. During this time she co-hosted her own episode of Channel V, appeared in numerous street magazines nationally and was interviewed by radio stations across the country!

On the Australian DJ circuit she has played in some of the country’s most established and respected clubs and shared the stage with some of the country’s biggest names. Femme is also the first ever female to earn her place as a main stage resident in Australia’s largest super club - HQ. Internationally she has played in Ibiza, Florida, Brazil, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, NZ, Noumea, PNG and Manila.

Her track "Time To Rock" – a collaboration with buddy Motez – was released by Homebrew Records and featured on “Pump It Vol 3”! Recently, she collaborated with Adelaide’s own Uberjakd. The result featured on “Pump It - Dirty Nasty”.

The most important factor is the tunes for this much in-demand DJ. She will proudly tell you it’s not about looking the package; it’s about loving what you do and being dedicated to the industry. She works tightly with the largest community dance music station in the country, Fresh FM, co-hosting shows as a monthly guest.

Femme’s club sound is main room electro with a mix of her favourite Melbourne sounds. Hard work and determination combined with strong technical skills has gotten Femme where she is today. In a tough industry this devoted DJ remains strong in her persistence.
