LIST: Talented Female Deejays You Should Know.
Female DJs usually have no clout in the music industry and more so in the house genre, it is very scarce to find an established house producer or disc jockey who is a woman. The industry is slowly but surely evolving though as lady deejays are stepping out and holding their own in the game.
