Ninja Tune signee and NTS resident Throwing Shade has vented her disgust via a video posted on Facebook. The post is in response to technical staff at Nuit Sonores festival who, according to the artist, treated her unfairly.
“THE FEMALE STRUGGLE IS REAL”, the artist writes. “Yesterday I played this festival in France and I literally had the worst technical experience of my DJ career. The sound guys were so incompetent, I had so many problems with feedback and they weren’t doing anything about it.”
The selector goes on to compare her difficulty with that of the following DJ, Jamie 3:26, who she claims was given a “all hands on deck” attitude from the techies and whose problems where sorted out straight away.
“I’m thinking, why didn’t you do that for me? There’s only one conclusion I can reach. It’s because I’m a female and he’s a male, and it’s bullshit.”
