THE NAMM SHOW is an annual event in the US that its organizers describe as “the world’s largest trade-only event for the music products, pro audio and event tech industry”. I performed at the InnoFader booth and at RELOOP. This was my first NAMM show and I was blown away. Its over a million square feet of all music technology with all genres represented from country and western to classical to punk to hip hop. The DJ area was concentrated to one general section of the convention so I must have been around all of my favourite DJs at once. Some highlights for me were seeing DJ JRocc perform his really unique, smooth, flowy and super creative, mesmerising style of juggling. Rob and I had a fangirl moment meeting Shortee and Faust who have been a huge inspiration to Rob and I for how to involve music and working together into a relationship. I also got some great advice from Shortee which I referred to in more detail in this video. Another massive take away for me personally was connecting with so many women in the industry! DJing is generally male dominated so finding out all these dope women who are KILLING it too was so refreshing and inspired me so much. This write up wouldn’t be complete without a special shout out to Da Odd Couple for taking me under their wing and bringing me into this incredible community of people. I will forever be grateful!
