The Discwoman cofounder fires up her combustible techno tracks in Montréal.

Umfang is one of the core figures of Discwoman, the NY-based, all-female collective of artists and club promoters, which aims to promote female-identified talent in the US electronic underground — the Kansas-born and Brooklyn-based Emma Olson, AKA Umfang, has kept her ear to the ground for years. She orbits the same axis of many of her techno-loving peers, DJing at Brooklyn’s Bossa Nova Civic Club for her monthly Technofeminism residency or at the Catskills-based Sustain-Release festival; she pushes a sublime and icy style of dark techno that teases out abstract beats to gargantuan effect.
