I started the year contacting The Miss World all female DJ collective of Edinburgh. They grace the clubs with their disco tunes and entertaining persona. They are basically Edinburgh’s answer to a disco destiny’s child! An all-female DJ Collective and are residents at Sneaky Pete’s, Paradise Palms and EH-FM in Edinburgh. Guest DJ’s have included Logic1000, Peach, Nina Las Vegas and Sara Wild. They describe themselves as a musical beauty pageant of all sounds and genres. Their main DJ’s are Aphid and Emily, who founded and still work under the collective name. It seems that from discussing music and events with them, that women in the music industry is of great importance to them. They enjoy playing disco, funk and soul music for people. Seeing as they are so evident amongst the young people’s crowd of Scotland, I wanted to make prints that honour these two girls. Something that people could admire. Almost like merchandise that not only promotes them but also sells to their audience.
As a result, I made an a4 response hand drawn illustration to watching them play live events and a set of A2 coloured paper screen-prints.
