Want to win a scholarship to Toolroom Academy?
Dancing Astronaut has partnered with Toolroom Records to award three female DJs/producers one $5,000 scholarship a piece to Toolroom Academy. To enter the contest and potentially score world-class virtual training in the house, tech house, and techno fields, contestants will first need to sign up here.
Upon registering their email with Toolroom, competitors will receive access to a sample pack that they can use to craft the demo that they will ultimately submit for consideration. Though producers are permitted to use other elements beyond the sample pack as they put the finishing touches on their respective submissions, they are encouraged to keep the Toolroom sound at the forefront of their creative efforts. All demos are due April 5, at which point Dancing Astronaut and Toolroom will collaboratively select three lucky winners whose names will be declared at Toolroom’s female-focused #WeAreListening event on April 8.
#WeAreListening is a new women-dedicated digital affair championing female presence in the dance music industry. On April 8, an eclectic lineup of all-women influencers including Mollie Collins, Alex Mills, DJ Paulette, Hayley May, and more will participate in panels and seminars spanning various topics such as radio and broadcasting, DJing, production, community and networking, marketing, and mental health and wellness. The single-day event, promoted in partnership with Dancing Astronaut, complements Toolroom’s general #WeAreListening platform, originally launched in 2018 to help break down barriers for females in the dance music space and bridge gaps between record labels and the next generation of up-and-coming female talent.
