When Rachel Torise was presented with the opportunity to run her project, she still wasn’t exactly sure what she wanted to focus on. With her love of vinyl, and desire to
see more women DJing, Spinsistas was born.
Spinsistas are a group of women in the Byron Bay area, who Rachel taught to use turntables, edit and other technical skills, with the outlook to running Outside Broadcasts and fundraisers. The project was such a popular success that the group are looking at grant applications to maintain the momentum, tours to local sound studios have been organised and many a social gathering has been held – forging string local networks.
