Which female shows did you listen to the most in 2017? From four-to-the-floor mixes to relaxing lounge vibes, we’ve rounded-up the top 10 shows by female DJs and selectors, which you spent the most minutes listening to this year.
These shows might not have quite made it into our overall top 10 most listened to shows, but they deserve a special mention in our end-of-year ‘Best of’ lists nonetheless.
This list is calculated based on the total minutes listened per show.
10. ‘Si – Dusk [enr40]’ by BØC
There’s a lot to like about Hungary-based DJ BØC. Whether it’s her uncanny ability to pick out the finest melodic electronica or her sheer talent at crafting an hour-long mix, BØC has spent the past few years building a legion of loyal followers on Mixcloud.
‘Si – Dusk’ aka ‘Experiment number 40’ is perhaps her best work yet; over 70 minutes of atmospheric techno and house, featuring huge tracks from Anton Boyar, Joris Voorn and more.
9. ‘My Fangtasy Vol 116’ by DJ Vampire
Whether it’s trance, EDM, deep house or old-school mashups, Prague’s Jana L aka ‘DJ Vampire’ is focused on one thing: dancefloor fillers designed to make you move.
