EDM's 5 Hottest Female DJs

Taking a look at this year's DJ Mag Top 100, there seems to be something missing. A greater presence of female DJ's! Only three have managed to land a spot on DJ Mag's Top 100, starting back in 2009 when Lisa Lashes took the #75 spot. The following year in 2010, Claudia Cazazu landed the number #93 spot. Currently, twin sisters Miriam and Olivia Nervo, or better known as the Nervo Twins, hold the highest (#16) female spot on the list followed by new entries Krewella at #44 and Tenashar at #87. In no particular order, the following are my top five female DJ's, both big name as well as up and coming, that not only know how to throw down, but are also easy on the eyes!



Australian duo Mim and Olivia Nervo have graced clubs and festivals alike with their chart topping singles, "Like Home" and a massive collaboration with Afrojack and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike The Way We See the World. [Tweet "#TeamNervo"] These sisters have an impressive portfolio: at the age of 18, they signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and co-wrote David Guetta and Kelly Rowland's number one dance hit, "When Love Takes Over". Not only did it win a Grammy, it was ranked the #1 dance pop collaboration of all time by Billboard. In 2012, they were announced as CoverGirl's newest faces. Catch the duo at this year’s Resolution Festival in Seattle.

2) Rebecca & Fiona


Swedish DJ duo Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatrick first appeared on the scene with their 2010 smash hit, Luminary Ones and are most commonly known for their vocals on Kaskade’s Turn it Down. Irresistible pop melodies and electro house beats have propelled these ladies into the scene with support from DJ’s like Tiesto and Kaskade. [Tweet "#TeamRebeccaFiona"]

3) Helena


UK born and Australian bred Helena is no stranger to electronic music. Growing up playing the cello and piano, she understands how to mix and integrate what tracks go well with others, which helps when it comes to producing. Signed exclusively on Spin Artist Agency alongside DJ’s like Avicii and Arty, Helena not only packs the world’s top clubs, she continues to improve as an artist and build her name. She is a sponsored by Pioneer as a Pioneer Pro DJ and was the first female artist to be booked on the main stage at Ultra Music Festival 2013. [Tweet "#TeamHelena"]

4) Maya Jane Coles


First producing hip-hop at the age of 15, British-Japanese producer and DJ, Maya Jane Coles was inspired by dub, punk, soul and jazz. On a typical record, she will have written, produced, engineered, arranged and mixed everything, something that distinguishes her from the rest. Gracing magazine covers like Village Voice (USA) and Mix Mag (UK) are just a few of many accomplishments for Coles. With a large online presence of over 10 million YouTube plays and 200,000+ Facebook fans, she is no stranger to fame also having played at Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Creamfields, and Electric Zoo.

In June of 2008, Miss Nine released an album on the Armada Label: Dancefloor Sessions. Her studio work has been featured on Spinnin Records and she has remixed artists like Gareth Emery and Sultan.
