In the wee hours Sunday morning, just after DJ Francesca Lombardo finished her set at an industrial warehouse turned rave site in Sin al-Fil, her Facebook page was buzzing with comments and likes from local electronica aficionados.But as Lombardo assumed her position at the DJ booth somewhere between Saturday night and Sunday morning, it was clear that she could handle her own in what has traditionally been a male-dominated field.Lombardo believes this trend is changing, if slowly.Larger female representation is part of a general maturing of the genre, Lombardo said.Despite the late nights, occasional audience intoxication and boys-club quality common in the electronic music scene, Lombardo says she is happiest behind the DJ booth.
