Our mission is to bring new voices into Detroit’s music scene, so in April 2016 we launched our first workshop series: Beat Match Brunch, a month-long introduction to the fundamentals of the art form for aspiring female-identified DJs. The first workshop, facilitated by Detroit DJ Mother Cyborg, had to turn away about half of the applicants, which highlights the series’ potential to breathe fresh air into the city’s electronic music scene. In November 2016, we won a Knight Arts Challenge grant for $15,000 to make this groundbreaking project a permanent fixture in the Detroit musical ecosystem.
