Yesterday, EB published a conversation between female:pressure founder Electric Indigo and Umfang, a young New Yorker helping to take on sexism in the electronic music industry with her blog, Discwoman and party series, Technofeminism. So naturally, a recent LA Weekly article proclaiming that Echo Park-based producer Kate Ellwanger (AKA Dot) brings a “riot grrrl attitude” to electronic music caught our attention.
