Beatport & Maya Jane Coles Celebrate Women’s History Month

Recognizing that women are an integral part of the dance music scene, Beatport and Maya Jane Coles are celebrating Women’s History Month with a host of special programming. Fans will be treated to a residency from the famed London DJ and producer;  re-streaming of DJ sets by amazing women; live Q&A sessions with artists; a Bass live stream; and a Beatportal feature highlighting the Women of Beatport. Nicole Moudaber, one of the dance music world’s most iconic contemporary artists, will also be featured as the March Artist of the Month.

The series kicks off on International Women’s Day (Monday, March 8) at 9am ET / 3pm CET with the first night of Maya Jane Coles’ month-long residency from London. Maya curates four streams: the first will showcase her selection of rising stars, another under her bass-driven Nocturnal Sunshine alter ego, the third under her techno-skewed alias CAYAM. The final stream will have Maya curating a set of internationally renowned DJs. Maya’s set on International Women’s Day will be followed by replays of DJ sets by women such as Honey Dijon, Charlotte DeWitte, Nastia and many more. Maya Jane Coles’ residency will be broadcast each Monday night during the month of March.
