30th July 2024

7.30 pm BST

£8.30 of free for Sustainer & Soulmate members (bursaries available)

Saffron, in collaboration with Audio-Technica, are pleased to present a three-month series of online vinyl DJ workshops for women, trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming people worldwide. 


Do you want to reach people with underground music that you think will resonate with them? In this workshop, DJ, broadcaster and music journalist Tina Edwards will be sharing honest and intimate advice on how to make a positive impact on the music community around you. As a DJ who plays broadly but is also recognised heavily for playing jazz, she’ll share how to play to both niche and broad audiences. Together with Tina we will cover:

Other sessions in this series are hosted by Darcy Archer (23 May) and NikNak (24 June).  Click here to view the full lineup.


Tina Edwards is a DJ at the forefront of the UK Jazz explosion. In the wake of Ezra Collective’s historic Mercury Prize win, it’s time for Jazz to dominate on the dancefloor—and her 150,000 + Instagram followers know it. Having been a vocal pioneer of the UK scene for a decade, Tina proves that jazz and club culture are perfect partners.

WIth contagious energy and deep music knowledge – from West African groove and latin-house to 00’s Italo Jazz – Tina’s sets are never predictable. She performs across the UK and has played in Paris, Berlin, Hamburg, Chicago and LA, all as an independent artist. She’s shared line-ups with Gilles Peterson, Colleen Murphy, Coco Maria, Scarlett O Malley, Delfonic, Rebecca Vasmant, Poly-Ritmo and more.

Tina hosts multi-genre new music show Next Big Thing on British Airways as well as her self-titled monthly residency on Soho Radio—not to mention the occasional Bandcamp Weekly. As one of Worldwide FM’s longest serving residents, Tina launched the popular breakfast show WW Daily, and hosted extra shows: EZH and Universal Sanctuary. In 2022 she presented the TV documentary JAZZ UK : Spitting Fire which aired on BBC One and BBC Four – testament to the fact that Tina is a trusted broadcaster and tastemaker. As a curator, she heads up Queer Jazz, promoting LGBTQIA+ talent in the jazz community, and re:sonate, programming far-reaching line-ups with fellow tastemaker, Tim Garcia.

The gender imbalance in the music technology industry is well-recognised. While we are absolutely not ‘anti-men’, we see that a shorter-term solution is to provide fellowship and learning environments that are not dominated by the cisgender male perspective. Therefore, these workshops are intended for women, non-binary, trans and gender non-conforming people to attend. While we do not ban cisgender men from attending, we hope that they will respect that this event is not intended for them.
