DJ Ayes Cold, aka Ayesha Chugh, is a DC DJ with an innovative and eclectic style. She talks about about about inspiration on what goes in to her mixes—from genres to seasons—as well as her experience navigating the boys-club world of DJs and production, and the power of women collaborating with each other. She also talks about curating her first showcase of all women DJs and producers.
The music is from Ayes Cold’s latest mix The Freezer, Vol. 5, which we premiere on this episode of femchord.fm.
[Production] really does come down to a question of resources, and I’ve worked with other women to try to concentrate or reallocate these resources in the hands of women.
