A true must-see for anyone passionate about females coming into power roles in the industry – Your EDM

In Amplify Her, three Electronic Dance Music artists battle demons from their painful pasts to emerge as beacons in the global festival scene. This visually dynamic film weaves animated motion comics created by the characters to offer intimate access into the colourful worlds of emerging female artists. Rather than ask the expected: “why aren’t there more women in this male dominated scene?”, we wonder: “what is unique about feminine expression and how might we all benefit when it flourishes?”

Blondtron is an outspoken, openly sexual music producer, yet as she transitions into an entrepreneur launching her own tech company, her raunchy antics prevent her from being taken seriously.

AppleCat is a sharp-witted DJ with heart, struggling to make ends meet – raising her young daughter by day and occasionally gigging as an online ‘camgirl’ at night. Her gift lies in creating soundscapes that allow others to release their sexual shame, yet to truly succeed, she must first forgive herself.

On the heels of beating a mysterious decade-long illness, Lux Moderna channels her healing mantras into her music, creating spaces of shamanic transformation on the dance floor, yet her biggest challenge awaits her: stepping out from behind the decks and performing as a center-stage priestess.

Amplify Her explores these rising stars and more as they come-of-age amidst the emerging cultural renaissance of the feminine.
