Founded by Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson, Emma Burgess-Olson and Christine McCharen-Tran, Discwoman is a New York-based platform, collective, and booking agency—representing and showcasing cis women, trans women and genderqueer talent in electronic music. Started as a two-day festival in September 2014 at Bossa Nova Civic Club Discwoman has since produced and curated events in 15+ cities—working with over 200 DJs and producers to-date.
“You can’t just talk about it, you have to do something,” says Frankie Hutchinson, who founded Discwoman with DJ Emma Olson and Christine Tran. “We saw that to change lineups we would have to get more control in booking, so that’s why we went into being a booking agency,” Hutchinson explained while in Detroit during Movement festival, where Discwoman were running an all-female, 15-hour show with local collective Girls Gone Vinyl to raise a funds for a scholarship to production classes at Detroit’s Music Industry Academy.
