There is no denying the electronic music scene is booming in Florida, and we love to see female artists making a break and running with it. It can be intimidating getting your name out there as a woman because the music industry is so overpowered by male artists.
With Miami being a Mecca for dance music and nightlife many artists make it a career goal to play there. Central Florida, Orlando and Tampa, have a heavy bass community and are constantly growing with the music industry.
